|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO contact with combustible substances.||Use water in large amounts, foam, dry powder.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of explosion on heating. Risk of explosion on contact with combustible substances or incompatible substances. See Chemical Dangers.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. NO direct contact with water.|
|Inhalation||Cough. Sore throat. Laboured breathing.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness.||Protective gloves.||First rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Burns.||Wear safety goggles.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Abdominal pain. Burning sensation. Shock or collapse.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|

|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
The substance decomposes in water producing hypochloric acid and cyanuric acid.
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 is therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
See ICSC 1313 (Cyanuric acid).
