First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation:Move exposed person to fresh air. If it is suspected that fumes are
still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or selfcontained
breathing apparatus. Keep person warm and at rest. If
not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs,
provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may
be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Get medical attention. If unconscious, place in
recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an
open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband.
Ingestion:Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air.
Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and
the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to
drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be
dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by
medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low
so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention. Never
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious,
place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie,
belt or waistband.
Skin contact:Wash skin immediately with plenty of water and soap. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation
occurs. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before
reuse.
Eye contact:Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses.
Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if
irritation occurs.
Notes to physician : Basic aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment.

carbon oxides
Advice for firefighters
Special precautions for firefighters:Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity
of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any
personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire
area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep fireexposed
containers cool.
Special protective
equipment for fire-fighters:Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece
operated in positive pressure mode.
Remark : Do not release runoff from fire to drains or watercourses

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions,
protective equipment and
emergency procedures:No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without
suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all
ignition sources. No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid
breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation.
Environmental
precautions:Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil,
waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the
product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil
or air).
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill:Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with
water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material
and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use sparkproof
tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed
waste disposal contractor.
Large spill:Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent
entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent
material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and
place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment.
Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated
absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe
handling:Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8).
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this
material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash
hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not breathe
vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and
clothing. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate
respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage areas
and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep in the
original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible
material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away
from heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use
explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling)
equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures
against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate
static electricity during transfer by earthing and bonding containers
and equipment before transferring material. Empty containers retain
product residue and can be hazardous.
Conditions for safe
storage, including any
incompatibilities:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and
approved area. Store in original container protected from direct
sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from
incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and drink.
Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials.
Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.
Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and
kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled
containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental
contamination.
Remarks : Protect from moisture. Keep away from acids and alkalis. Ensure
effective ventilation. Vent waste air only via suitable separators or
scrubbers.
