  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Not combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.        In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.   

 STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Sweating. Nausea. Vomiting. Dizziness. Convulsions. Unconsciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. Further see Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.  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. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Rest. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS-TO-YELLOW LIQUID OR WHITE CRYSTALS WITH PUNGENT ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on contact with acids and oxidants. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen bromide, hydrogen chloride and phosphorus oxides. Decomposes on contact with water. This produces dichlorvos and dichloroacetaldehyde. Attacks metals, plastics, rubber and coatings.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol, through the skin and by ingestion. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. This may result in convulsions and respiratory depression. Cholinesterase inhibition. Exposure far above the OEL could cause death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Cholinesterase inhibition. Cumulative effects are possible. See Acute Hazards/Symptoms. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 0.1 mg/m3, as TWA; (skin); (SEN); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); BEI issued.
MAK: (inhalable fraction): 1 mg/m3; peak limitation category: II(2); skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH); pregnancy risk group: C 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to bees. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
