|4. FIRST AID MEASURES|
|First Aid Measures||M|
|Inhalation||Move victim to fresh air. Apply resuscitation if victim is not breathing - If trained personnel available administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.|
|Ingestion||If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. If irritation develops or persists transport to hospital or doctor.|
|Skin||If dust falls onto the skin, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.|
If irritation persists transport to hospital or doctor.
|Eye||If dust enters the eyes, flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, ensuring eye lids are held open. If irritation develops or persists, immediately transport to hospital or doctor.|
|First Aid Facilities||Recommended: Eye wash. Hand wash basin.|
|Advice to Doctor||Product contains a very high proportion of non-silica inert filler, and a low proportion of a surfactant. If swallowed, vomiting should not have been induced because of the risk of aspiration of powder into the lungs. Risk of mechanical damage if in eyes. Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|Other Information||Inhalation of dusts may represent an acute risk to persons with a compromised respiratory system.|
|5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES|
|Suitable Extinguishing Media||Water, or as for other chemicals present.|

|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES|
|Spills & Disposal||Avoid generating dusts. Wear suitable protective equipment. Ventilate area. If possible wet area down to prevent high dust levels. If available, use dustless methods, such as a HEPA vacuum and filter. Otherwise, use a non-sparking shovel and place into a suitably labeled container for later disposal. Do not dry sweep.|
|7. HANDLING AND STORAGE|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||Do not generate dusts.|
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Keep away from acids.

|Engineering Controls||Good industrial hygiene practice requires that employee exposure be maintained below the recommended TLV/TWA. This is preferably achieved through the provision of adequate ventilation where necessary. |
Where dust cannot be controlled in this way, personal respiratory protection should be employed.
|Personal Protective Equipment||Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe dust. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-|
Gloves, rubber or plastic.
Full face respirator with dust filters fitted or suitable dust mask
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
