  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    NO open flames.    Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Sore throat. Cough. Headache. Laboured breathing. See Ingestion.  Avoid inhalation of dust. Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention if skin irritation occurs. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Ingestion Abdominal pain. Weakness. Dizziness. Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. Fever. Shock or collapse.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.
