TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE

ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS

PREVENTION

FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING

FIRE Combustible.
NO open flames.
water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide
EXPLOSION Above 94°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 94°C use a closed system, ventilation.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

 •INHALATION
Ventilation.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles .
First rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.
