|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|TLV: (as HCl, ceiling value): 0.5 ppm as STEL; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen)|
|It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
|Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
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.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
The decomposition products of this substance may cause effects on the environment.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
