Hazards and Protection.
Keep tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Handle and store under nitrogen.
Compatible chemical-resistant gloves. Chemical safety goggles. Protective clothing.
Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.
Cover with dry-lime, sand, or soda ash. Place in covered containers using non-sparking tools and transport outdoors. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.
Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Thermal decomposition may produce toxic fumes of phosphorus oxides and/or phosphine.
Extinguish with water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Catches fire if exposed to air (pyrophoric). Flammable hazard.
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.
Exposure can cause nausea, headache and vomiting.
Toxic if swallowed.
Material may be irritating to mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract. Toxic if inhaled.
May cause irritation. Toxic if absorbed throught the skin.
May cause irritation.
If swallowed, wash out mouth with water provided person is conscious. Call a physician.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
In case of contact, immediately wash skin with soap and copious amounts of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Call a physician.
In case of contact with eyes, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Assure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers. Call a physician.
