TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Self-heating. May ignite on exposure to air. Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames. NO contact with oxidizing agents.||Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!|
|Inhalation||Sore throat. Cough. Shortness of breath. Laboured breathing.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Pain. Redness.||Wear safety goggles 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||Sore throat. See Notes.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus. Sweep spilled substance into covered sealable containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.||
Put breakable packaging into closed unbreakable container.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

The symptoms of lung oedema 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.
Health effects of exposure to the substance have not been investigated adequately.
Several manufacturers label this substance for other effects - including the possibility of allergic skin reactions, cancer, reproductive effects, specific target organ toxicity (following repeated exposure) or long-term aquatic hazard - but sufficient data to support these GHS classifications were not found.
