First-aid measures

Ingestion: Large quantities of water should be drunk. Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure. Seek medical attention.
Skin: Wash thoroughly with water. For rashes seek medical advice. show label if possible.
Eyes: Irrigate eyeball thoroughly with water for at least 10 minutes. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.
Wounds: Cleanse thoroughly to remove any nickel oxide particles.

Fire-fighting measures

Non-flammable. Extinguish surrounding fires with appropriate methods.

Accidental release measures

Collect spills by wet sweeping or vacuuming with the vacuum exhaust passing through a high efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA) filter if exhaust is discharged into the workplace.
Wear appropriate nationally approved respirators if collection and disposal of spills is likely to cause the concentration limits of airborne nickel to exceed the locally prescribed exposure limits.

Handling and storage

Keep in the container supplied and keep container closed when not in use.
Wear suitable protective clothing including gloves.
As packed nickel oxide may constitute a manual handling risk.
Nickel oxide is subject to the Control of Major Accident Hazards Directives 82/501 EEC,96/82/EC & 98/433/EC (The Seveso Directive). Local consent needs to be obtained to store quantities in excess of 1 tonne.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limit values:
Nickel Oxide: TLV (mg/m3) = 0.2 (inhalable particle size fraction); based on Threshold Limit Values of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (2008); Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Nickel Oxide: WEL (mg/m3) = 0.5; based on Maximum Exposure Limit of the Health and Safety Executive in the U.K. in EH40/00; Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Cobaltous Oxide: TLV (mg/m3) = 0.02 as Co based on Threshold Limit Values of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (2008); Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Cobaltous Oxide: WEL (mg/m3) = 0.1 as Co; based on Maximum Exposure Limit of the Health and Safety Executive in the U.K. in EH40/00; Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Maintain airborne nickel levels as low as possible.

Occupational exposure controls: Do not inhale dust. Ventilation is normally required when handling or using this product to keep airborne nickel below the nationally authorized limits. If ventilation alone cannot control exposure, respiratory protection must be used.

a) Respiratory protection: Do not inhale dust. If ventilation alone cannot control exposure, respiratory protection (selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous material) must be used.

b) Eye protection: Avoid repeated eye contact. Wear goggles or face shield.

c) Hand and skin protection: Avoid repeated skin contact. Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves, which should be selected specifically for the working place, dependant on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous material (overalls and leather/rubber gloves). Wash skin thoroughly after handling and before eating, drinking or smoking. Change contaminated clothing frequently. Launder clothing and gloves as needed. Use of skin protective barrier cream advised.

Stability and reactivity

Stable and non-reactive.

Disposal considerations

Nickel containing material is normally collected to recover nickel values. Should disposal be deemed necessary follow local regulations.
