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, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!|
|Inhalation||Cough.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Redness.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|Ingestion||No acute symptoms expected.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Rinse mouth.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
