4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Immediately rinse mouth with water. Give 3 to 4 glasses of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek immediate medical attention.
Inhalation
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention if breathing problems develop.
Skin Contact
In case of skin contact, immediately remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas with water and soap. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.
Eye Contact
In case of eye contact, hold eyelids open and rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.
Other Information
No further relevant information available.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions.
HAZCHEM
Not available.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Hazardous combustion products include oxides of carbon and smoke.
Product is not flammable or combustible. When fighting a major fire wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective equipment.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear appropriate protective equipment. Evacuate all non-essential personnel from affected area. Do not breathe vapours. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
In the event of a major spill, prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Stop leak if safe to do so and absorb spill with sand, earth, vermiculite or some other absorbent material. Collect the spilled material and place into a suitable container for disposal.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation of vapours. Food, beverages and tobacco products should not be stored or consumed where this material is in use.
Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use. Provide eyewash fountains and safety showers in close proximity to points of potential exposure.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated area. Keep in original container tightly closed when not in use. Protect from heat. Keep away from strong oxidising agents, acids and alkalies.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards

STEL mg/m3
acetic acid
10 ppm
25 mg/m³,
15 ppm
37 mg/m³
Engineering controls
Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapour below occupational exposure standards.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
Eye and face protectors for protection against splashing materials or liquids. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 for more information.
Skin protection
PVC or natural rubber gloves. See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2161 for more information. When selecting gloves for use against certain chemicals, the degradation resistance, permeation rate and permeation breakthrough time should be considered.
.Occupational protective clothing (depending on conditions in which it has to be used, in particular as regards the period for which it is worn, which shall be determined on the basis of the seriousness of the risk, the frequency of exposure to the risk, the characteristics of the workstation of each worker and the performance of the protective clothing). See Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4501 for more information.
Body protection
No information available.
Respiratory protection
Use approved vapour respirator under conditions where exposure to the substance is apparent (e.g. generation of high concentrations of mist or vapour, inadequate ventilation, development of respiratory tract irritation) and engineering controls are not feasible. See Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715 and 1716 for more information.
