TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 79.5C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 79.5C use a closed system, ventilation.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Blue lips or finger nails. Blue skin. Cough. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing. Sore throat.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES
Face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION Abdominal pain. Blue lips or fingernails. Blue skin. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing. Nausea.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS OR SLIGHTLY YELLOW OILY LIQUID, TURNS BROWN ON EXPOSURE TO AIR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating and on burning producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides and aniline. Reacts violently with strong acids and oxidants .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.5 ppm as TWA (skin) BEI issued (ACGIH 2006).
MAK: 0.5 ppm 2.2 mg/m skin absorption (H);
Peak limitation category: II(2) Pregnancy risk group: D
(DFG 2007).
OSHA PEL: TWA 2 ppm (9 mg/m3) skin
NIOSH REL: TWA 0.5 ppm (2 mg/m3) skin
NIOSH IDLH: 100 ppm See: 100618


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, by inhalation of its aerosol, through the skin, by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance may cause effects on the blood , resulting in formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
