Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Chemical resistant gloves, ANSI approved goggles and protective clothing.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
While wearing protective equipment, sweep up and place in a bag. Store for later disposal. Avoid dust generation.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Oxides of carbon and phosphorus.
Extinguish fire with water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam. Use NIOSH approved SCBA and protective clthing.
Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.
Blood pressure may be decreased following an iron overdose. Lethargy, restlessness or confusion may be seen early in the poisoning. Convulsions and coma may occur in later phases. Case reports of pregnant women who have received early aggressive treatment (decontamination and/or deferoxamine) have described good fetal outcomes.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and gastrointestinal hemorrhage may develop.
Noncardiogenic pulmonary edema may develop with severe intoxication.
Severe thermal burn with ferrous sulfate slurry has caused classical symptoms of ingested iron poisoning.
May cause irritation.
Wash mouth out with water provided person is concous. Seek medical assistance.
Remove to fresh air. If breathing becomse difficult, seek medical aid.
Flush with copious amounts of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
