Section 4: First-Aid Measures

Emergency and First Aid Procedures:

Direct contact with eyes may cause temporary irritation. Treat symptomatically. Symptoms may be delayed. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible). Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Keep out of reach of children.

If in eyes:

Flush with cool water. Remove contact lenses, if applicable, and continue flushing. Obtain medical attention if irritation persists. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

If on skin or clothing:

Immediately flush with cool water for 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Discard or wash well before reuse. Obtain medical attention if irritation persists.

If inhaled:

If breathing is difficult, remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If symptoms persist, obtain medical attention.

If swallowed:

Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting. Contact a physician or Poison Control Center. If vomiting occurs naturally, have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration. Never give anything by mouth if victim is unconscious, or is convulsing. Obtain medical attention.

       

 

Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures

Flash Point:

N/A

Flammability:

Non-Flammable

Products of combustion:

May include and are not limited to: Oxides of carbon, Oxides of sulfur.

Extinguishing Media:

Use water-spray (fog), dry chemical, regular foam, or CO2. Tailor extinguishing media to surrounding fire. Do not use water jet.

Protective equipment and precautions for firefighters:

During fire gases hazardous to health may be formed. Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece. Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk.

 

Section 6:  Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions:

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental Precautions:

Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Containment and cleanup:

Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. Following product recovery, flush area with water. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas. Never return spills in original containers for re-use. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilled product.

 

Section 7:  Handling and Storage

Safe handling:

Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. When using do not eat or drink. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing vapors or mists of this product. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep container tightly closed.

Safe storage:

Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10) . Store in tightly closed container. Keep out of reach of children.

 

Section 8:  Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Exposure limits(Glycerol):

OSHA PEL(Permissible Exposure Limit): 5 mg/m3 Respirable fraction,15 mg/m3 total dust                                          

Engineering controls:

Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Personal protective equipment:

Chemical resistant gloves, protective clothing, chemical safety glasses, face protection. Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Where exposure guideline levels may be exceeded, use an approved NIOSH respirator. Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants.
