Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Store in a cool, dry location, away from food/feed, fertilizers or seed.
Handling
Avoid contact. Adequately decomtaminate all tools and equipment after use. Use protective equipment.
Protection
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses. Whre chemical resistant gloves. To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Respirators
NIOSH/MSHA approved air respirator for pesticide dust when handling spills or leaks or when airborne concentrations exceed recommended limits.
Small spills/leaks
Shovel/scoop loose material and place in an appropriate container. Avoid dust generation. Stay up wind. Clean residue from exposed surfaces. Use appropriate protective equipment.
Stability
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Incompatibilities
Strong oxidizing agents.
Decomposition
Oxides of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur. Ammonia.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.

Exposure effects
   Ingestion
Toxic by ingestion.
   Inhalation
Harmful if inhaled. Acute or chronic exposure can caush asthmatic reaction or other pulmanary problems.
   Skin
Irritation. Absorption may be harmful.
   Eyes
Causes irritation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
The possible benefit of early removal of some ingested material by cautious gastric lavage must be weighed against potential complications of bleeding or perforation. Activated charcoal activated charcoal binds most toxic agents and can decrease their systemic absorption if administered soon after ingestion. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
   Inhalation
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.
   Eyes
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
