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. Dry powder. Carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE See EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE.
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Cough.
Ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness.
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
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
