4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Ingestion
Wash out mouth with water and obtain medical attention.
Inhalation
If inhaled, remove from contaminated area to fresh air immediately. Apply artificial respiration if not
breathing. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Skin Contact
Wash affected areas with copious quantities of water immediately for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek medical attention if irritation develops or persist.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Seek medical attention urgently.
Other Information
For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (Phone eg Australia 13 1126 New Zealand 0800 764 766) or a doctor.
5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing equipment
Alcohol resistant foam, water spray or fog. Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, sand or earth may be used for small fires only.
HAZCHEM
Hydrogen chloride, carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, carbon dioxide.
Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid substance contact. Avoid generation of dusts: do not inhale dusts. Ensure supply of fresh air in enclosed room.
Wear protective clothing specified for normal operations (see Section 8)
Environmental precautions
Not available.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Sweep up (avoid generating dust) and remove to a suitable, clearly labelled container for disposal in accordance with local regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wash hands and face thoroughly after working with material. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid generation or accumulation of dusts. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid ingestion and inhalation of material. Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
Conditions for safe storage
Keep container tightly closed Keep in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Store away from incompatible substances.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards
Engineering controls
No exposure standards have been established for this product by Safe Work Australia, however, the TWA exposure standard for dusts not otherwise specified is 10 mg/m3.
In industrial situations maintain the concentrations values below the TWA. This may be achieved by process modification, use of local exhaust ventilation, capturing substances at the source, or other methods.
Personal protective equipment
Eye and face protection
The use of a face shield, chemical goggles or safety glasses with side shield protection as appropriate. Must comply with Australian Standards AS 1337 and be selected and used in accordance with AS 1336.
Skin protection
Hand protection should comply with AS 2161, Occupational protective gloves - Selection, use and maintenance.
Body protection
Final choice of personal protective equipment will depend on individual circumstances and/or according to risk assessments undertaken.
Safety boots in industrial situations is advisory, foot protection should comply with AS 2210, Occupational protective footwear - Guide to selection, care and use.
Appropriate protective clothing.
Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking and using the toilet.
Respiratory protection
Where ventilation is not adequate, respiratory protection may be required. Avoid breathing dust, vapours or mists. Respiratory protection should comply with AS 1716 - Respiratory Protective Devices and be selected in accordance with AS 1715 - Selection, Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protective
Devices. Filter capacity and respirator type depends on exposure levels. In event of emergency or planned entry into unknown concentrations a positive pressure, full-facepiece SCBA should be used. If respiratory protection is required, institute a complete respiratory protection program including selection, fit testing, training, maintenance and inspection.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Ecotoxicity
No further relevant information available.
Persistence and degradability
Will slowly biodegrade but not bioconcentrate.
Bioaccumulative potential
Terrestrial: May undergo covalent chemical bonding with humic materials which can result in its chemical alteration to a latent form and tight adsorption. When covalently bound in this latent form, leaching in soil
systems is not expected to occur.
Aquatic: May undergo covalent bonding with humic materials in the water column and sediment.
Atmospheric: Particulate phase auramine hydrochloride will probably be removed from air via dry deposition, or degraded in air by photolysis based on its UV spectrum.
Other adverse effects
No further relevant information available.
