Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control possible exposures. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep exposure levels below recommended exposure limits.
All personal protective equipment should be based on a risk assessment. Consult a Environment Health Safety expert if necessary.
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection:Face-shield
Hand protection Material:Neoprene
Long sleeve gloves Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).
Skin and body protection: closed work clothing
disposable one-piece overall with integral hood
Respiratory protection : Engineering controls should always be the primary method of controlling exposures.
If respiratory protective equipment is needed for certain activities, the type as well as the corresponding protection factor will depend upon the risk assessment and air concentrations, hazards, physical and warning properties of substances present.
Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.
Suitable mask with particle filter P3
Protective measures: The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
