Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls:
Occupational exposure to amantadine hydrochloride may occur through inhalation and dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where it is produced or used. Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment.
Appropriate engineering controls – Choose the working organization, technology and equipment in order to prevent or minimize any exposure.
Organisational measures to prevent exposure: only trained and instructed staff may work with the substance.
Technical measures to prevent exposure: Local exhaust ventilation is required where solids are handled as powders or crystals; even when particulates are relatively large, a certain proportion will be powdered by mutual friction. Exhaust ventilation should be designed to prevent recirculation of particulates and accumulation in the workplace.
Individual protection equipment:
Eye/face protection – For laboratory, larger scale or bulk handling or where regular exposure in an occupational setting occurs - chemical goggles.
Full-face shield may be required for supplementary but never for primary protection of eyes.
Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. DO NOT wear contact lenses.
Skin protection – Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.
Hand protection: The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 and US F739. Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include such as frequency and duration of contact, chemical resistance of glove material, glove thickness and dexterity.
When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 5 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 240 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended.
When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 3 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 60 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. Contaminated gloves should be replaced.
Glove material – natural rubber, nitrile rubber, neoprene or PVC.
Other skin protection: Barrier cream, skin-cleansing cream, eye wash unit.
Respiratory protection – Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a dust mask type N95 (US) or type P1 (EN 143) respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). Respirators may be necessary when engineering and administrative controls do not adequately prevent exposures. The decision to use respiratory protection should be based on professional judgment that takes into account toxicity information, exposure measurement data, and frequency and likelihood of the worker's exposure - ensure users are not subject to high thermal loads which may result in heat stress or distress due to personal protective equipment (powered, positive flow, full face apparatus may be an option). Certified respirators will be useful for protecting workers from inhalation of particulates when properly selected and fit tested as part of a complete respiratory protection program. Use approved positive flow mask if significant quantities of dust becomes airborne.
Thermal hazards – None.
