Take up with sand, dirt or vermiculite. DO NOT use sawdust. Use non-sparking tools. Place into labelled drum(s) for later disposal.
Notify Emergency Services (Police or Fire Brigade). Tell them exact location, nature, hazards, quantities, type of vehicle and and any other information that would be helpful. Contain spill. Remove all ignition sources and safely stop flow of spill. Bund area. Trained personnel should wear Personal Protective equipment as highlighted in this MSDS. Blanket the spill with foam or use water fog to disperse vapour clouds. Consult an expert regarding disposal of this product.
|7. Handling and storage|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition, alkalis, combustibles and oxidizing agents. All equipment must be earthed. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer. Check all fittings, valves, reticulation (piping) and any ancillary equipment for leaks. A supplied air respirator or a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) for emergencies should be available and checked regularly. For further information please refer to the Engineering Controls of this MSDS.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Occupational exposure limit values||Name||STEL (mgm3)||STEL (ppm)||TWA (mgm3)||TWA (ppm)||FootNote|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Other Exposure Information||No value assigned by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (Worksafe Australia). However, exposure standards for constituents:|
Phosphoric acid: TWA: 1 ppm ( 3 mg/m3): STEL: No value.
|Appropriate engineering controls||Corrosive liquid. Single significant exposure may cause severe injury or even death. Maintain adequate ventilation at all times. Prevent accumulation of vapours in hollows or sumps. Eliminate any sources of ignition. Exposure to this material may be controlled in a number of ways.The measures appropriate for a particular worksite depend on how the material is used and on the potential for exposure. Engineering methods to prevent or control exposure are preferred. Methods include process or personnel enclosure, mechanical ventilation (dilution and local exhaust), and control of process conditions. If engineering controls and work practices are not effective in preventing or controlling exposure, then suitable personal protective equipment, which is known to perform satisfactorily, should be used.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Avoid 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:-|
Gloves, rubber or plastic
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 this product. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
