Hazards and Protection.
Keep containers tightly closed in a well ventilated area away from food products. Keep away from heat and water. Exposure to air will cause it to turn pink.
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.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary. Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water. Water spill: If dissolved, in region of 10 ppm or greater concentration, apply activated carbon at ten times the spilled amount. Neutralize with agricultural lime (CaO), crushed limestone (CaCO3), or sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.)
Containers may explode when heated.
Irritating oxides of sulfur may form in fires.
Ingestion - zinc salts (especially zinc sulfate) produce gastritis ranging from a burning pain in the mouth and throat to intense gastric and substernal pain, strictures, violent vomiting, diarrhea, shock, and possible death.
Inhalation of material may be harmful.
Contact may cause burns.
If large amount has been swallowed, induce vomiting, followed by prompt and complete gastric lavage, cathartics, and demulcents.
Move to fresh air.
Flush with water.
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
