Hazards and Protection.
Keep container tightly closed. Store at 2 - 8 C.
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots, and heavy rubber gloves.
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 particle respirator type N99 (US) or type P2 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.
