TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible under specific conditions.

In case of fire in the surroundings: use appropriate extinguishing media.
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
Prevent deposition of dust; closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

 •INHALATION Cough.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles. Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting.
