 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

 
First Aid MeasuresM
 
InhalationDo not breathe vapour. Remove victim to fresh air. Keep victim warm and calm. If patient is unconscious and breathing, place them in the coma position, check airway and observe. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Apply resuscitation if victim is not breathing. Obtain immediate medical care.
 
IngestionDo NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly and seek medical advice.
 
SkinRemove contaminated clothing. Wash area thoroughly with soap and water.
 
EyeIf in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
 
First Aid FacilitiesEye wash station and normal washroom facilities.
 
Advice to DoctorProduct contains a very low proportion of two synthetic pyrethroid insecticides in hydrocarbon solvents. Contact Poisons Information Centre.
 
Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaSmall fire: Use water spray, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Large fire: Use water spray or fog.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsHeat or damage to containers can release flammable / poisonous gases.
Extremely flammable. Pressurised dispenser. Closed containers may rupture
when exposed to heat greater than 50 C. Ruptured containers will rocket.
Released gases can form explosive mixtures with air. Hazardous
concentrations can accumulate in a confined space. Released gases can travel
to source of ignition and flash back. Fire can produce irritating, poisonous and
corrosive gases. Propellant is extremely flammable and heavier than air.
 
Special Protective Equipment for fire fightersHigh concentration of gas could cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning. Released gases are harmful. Wear SCBA and protective gloves. If large amounts are involved, wear SCBA and chemical splash suit.
 
Specific MethodsFight fire from protected position or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. If safe to do so, move undamaged containers from fire area. Do not approach hot containers. Cool containers with water before handling. If impossible to extinguish fire, protect surroundings, withdraw from are and allow fire to burn.

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
Emergency ProceduresImmediately contact police or fire brigade. Spill or leak area should be isolated immediately for at least 8 m in all directions. Eliminate all sources of ignition within at least 15 m. Keep unauthorised personnel away. Keep upwind and to higher ground. When a large quantity is involved in a fire, consider initial evacuation for at least 100 m in all directions. Send message to police and fire brigade. Tell them the location, material, UN Number, quantity and emergency contact as well as damage observed.
 
Spills & DisposalEliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flame) within at least 15 m. All equipment used when handling the product must be earthed. If water is available, spray leaking containers to reduce ignition hazard and disperse gas. Isolate area until gas has dispersed. Ventilate area. Avoid release to the environment. Do not empty into drains. Absorb in inert absorbent material for disposal by an approved method and / or local regulations.
 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingSpray in a well ventilated area. Do not breathe vapour. Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary to minimise excessive vapour concentration, if levels are likely to be high or in a confined space. Avoid static charge and discharge with high concentrations and in confined space.
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore in a well ventilated area. Pressurised dispenser. Protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 C. Do not pierce or burn this can, even when empty. Store away from corrosive products. Store in accordance with Dangerous Goods Regulations and transport in accordance with the ADG Code for Dangerous Goods Class 2.1
 
Storage RegulationsM
