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.
Water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Container may explode violently in heat of fire.

In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Blue skin. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache. Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Sweating. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Convulsions. Unconsciousness. Weakness. See Ingestion.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Sweating and twitching in the area of absorption. (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness. Pain. Pupillary constriction.
Face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Abdominal cramps. Confusion. Diarrhoea. Vomiting. Loss of appetite. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
PALE YELLOW LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing highly toxic fumes of phosphorous oxides and sulfur oxides . Reacts with strong oxidants. Attacks iron, some forms of plastic, rubber and coatings.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
OSHA PEL: TWA 0.2 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH REL: TWA 0.2 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH IDLH: 10 mg/m3 See: 89245
TLV: (inhalable fraction & vapour) 0.1 mg/m as TWA; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); BEI issued; (ACGIH 2008).
EU OEL: 0.1 mg/m; (skin); (EU 2000.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the skin . The substance may cause effects on the nervous system , resulting in convulsions, respiratory failure. Cholinesterase inhibitor. Exposure far above the OEL may result in death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Cholinesterase inhibitor; cumulative effect is possible: see acute hazards/symptoms.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.
N O T E S
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. Technical grade is a dark-coloured liquid, boiling point 131-132C at 0.267 kPa. Do NOT take working clothes home. ASP 47, Bay-E-393, Bladafum, Dithion, Dithiotep, Dithiofos are trade names.
