TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames.||Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPOSURE||AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Sweating. Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Dizziness. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Vomiting. Convulsions. Unconsciousness.||Use ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . See Notes.|
|Eyes||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Abdominal cramps. Diarrhoea. Nausea. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer for medical attention . See Notes.|
