 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

 
First Aid MeasuresM
 
InhalationRemove victim to fresh air. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
 
IngestionRinse mouth with water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give water to drink to be taken slowly. Seek immediate medical advice.
 
SkinRemove heavily contaminated clothing. Wash affected area with copious quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops or persists seek medical advice.
 
EyeImmediately irrigate with copious quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids open. Seek medical attention.
 
First Aid FacilitiesEye wash station and normal washroom facilities.
 
Advice to DoctorTreat symptomatically for acids (phosphoric acid).
 
Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaUse extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire. Use water spray to cool containers and surrounds.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsM
 
Specific MethodsFire-fighters to wear self contained breathing apparatus and protective equipment. If safe to do so remove containers from path of fire.
 
Specific HazardsNon-flammable liquid. However, flammable and explosive hydrogen gas may be formed on contact with metals.
 
Hazchem Code2X
 
Precautions in connection with FireM
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
Emergency ProceduresKeep unnecessary people away; Isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; Keep out of low areas. Wear appropriate eye, skin and respiratory protection as outlined in this MSDS.
 
Spills & DisposalWear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination consisting of rubber gloves and safety goggles. 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. Wash down area with excess water.
 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore in cool place in sealed plastic containers. Store in a well ventilated area. Store away from oxidising agents and foodstuffs. Store away from sources of heat. Keep containers closed when not in use.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
National Exposure Standards     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
Phosphoric acid31
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Other Exposure InformationNo value assigned by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (Worksafe Australia).
 
Engineering ControlsCorrosive liquid. 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.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with the skin and eyes. Avoid breathing the vapour. Personal
protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode
of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
PVC or nitrile rubber gloves.
Chemical goggles or faceshield to protect eyes.
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.
