|Occupational exposure limits|
TLV: (inhalable fraction): 0.1 mg/m3, as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen).
MAK: sensitization of respiratory tract and skin (SAH); carcinogen category: 1
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
|At temperatures up to 330 °C nickel (II) sulphate containing water of crystallization will gradually release its total water content.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
The symptoms of asthma often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Anyone who has shown symptoms of sensitization due to this substance should avoid all further contact with nickel, nickel compounds and other metal compounds of e.g. copper, chromium and cobalt.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Isolate contaminated clothing by sealing in a bag or other container.
The recommendations on this Card also apply to Nickel sulfate hexahydrate (CAS 10101-97-0) and heptahydrate (CAS 10101-98-1).
