TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Many reactions may cause fire or explosion. See Chemical dangers||NO open flames. See Chemical Dangers.||NO hydrous agents, foam, carbon dioxide. Use inert gas, dry sand, special powder.|
|EXPLOSION||Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.||Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation. Nausea. Vomiting. Shortness of breath.||Use closed system or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. No mouth-to-mouth artificial respiration. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain. Blisters. Skin burns.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Put clothes in sealable container. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer immediately for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Blurred vision. Severe deep burns.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Sore throat. Nausea. Abdominal pain. Burning sensation. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. Shock or collapse.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus. Cover the spilled material with dry powder.||
Put breakable packaging into closed unbreakable container.
