|3. Composition/information on ingredients|
|Ingredients determined not to be hazardous, including water.||to 100%|
|4. First-aid measures|
|Inhalation||Remove from exposure. If aspirated into the lungs, obtain immediate medical attention.|
|Ingestion||If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Seek urgent medical assistance.|
|Skin||If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. If irritation persists see a doctor.|
|Eye contact||If in eyes, hold eyes upen, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.|
|First Aid Facilities||Eye wash station and normal washroom facilities.|
|Advice to Doctor||Vomiting has not been induced because of risk of aspiration into the lungs. Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|5. Fire-fighting measures|
|Suitable extinguishing media||Use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Water vapour, carbon dioxide and oxides of nitrogen. Incomplete combustion may generate carbon monoxide.|
|Special Protective Equipment for fire fighters||Fire fighters to wear Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in confined spaces, in oxygen deficient atmospheres or if exposed to products of decomposition. Full protective clothing is also recommended.|
|Specific hazards arising from the chemical||Not a fire hazard. Not an explosion hazard.|
|Precautions in connection with Fire||M|
|6. Accidental release measures|
|Spills & Disposal||Before dealing with spillage take necessary protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance. Spillages will be very slippery. Contain large spills with an inert material such as sand, soil or vermiculite. Collect and seal in properly labelled containers for disposal. Small spills may be mopped up. If local regulations permit, wash down area with excess water and run to waste, diluting greatly with running water. Otherwise absorb on inert absorbent, transfer to container and arrange removal by disposals company. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water. Ventilate area to dispel any residual vapour.|
|7. Handling and storage|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in cool place in original container. Store away from oxidising agents, acids and foodstuffs. Keep containers closed when not in use. Store out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded area. Do not mix with other chemicals. Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Occupational exposure limit values||Name||STEL (mgm3)||STEL (ppm)||TWA (mgm3)||TWA (ppm)||FootNote|
|Sodium hydroxide||2||Peak limitation|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Appropriate engineering controls||Maintain adequate ventilation at all times. In most circumstances natural ventilation systems are adequate unless the material is heated, reacted or otherwise changed in some type of chemical reaction, then the use of a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Prevent contact with the eyes. Avoid contact with the skin. Avoid breathing vapours. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-|
Goggles, face shield or safety glasses
Gloves, rubber or plastic
Plastic apron, sleeves and boots.
Respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 dust mask (disposable) or with replaceable filters is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels and type of contaminant. If entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown then the use of a Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive pressure air supply complying with AS/NZS 1715 / 1716, or any other acceptable International Standard is recommended.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
