 6. Accidental release measures

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalDisposal of small spillages only. For large spillages liquids should be contained using sand or earth, and both liquids and solids then transferred to salvage containers. Residues should be treated as for small spillages. CAUTION: Before dealing with spillage take necessary protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance and, for flammable materials, shut off all possible sources of ignition. CARE! Spillages will be slippery. If local regulations permit, mop up with plenty of 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 vapours.
 

 7. Handling and storage

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesStore in a cool, well ventilated place, out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded area. Store in original container. Keep away from acids and oxidising agents. Prevent vapours from collecting in low lying or enclosed spaces. Protect from physical damage. Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary accidents.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. Exposure controls/personal protection

 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Other Exposure InformationNo value assigned by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (SafeWork Australia).
 
Appropriate engineering controlsMaintain 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.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with the skin and eyes. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Safety glasses where risk of splashing exists;
Gloves, rubber or plastic where risk of skin contact exists.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using this product. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
