Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to combustion products during fire should wear full protective clothing including positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Wear SCBA with full face-piece, operated in positive pressure mode when fighting fires.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Restrict access to area. Ventilate area. Remove chemicals that can react with the spilled material.
Environmental precautions
Prevent from entering waterways.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Use inert material such as sand or earth to contain spill or leak. Neutralise with sodium bicarbonate. Absorb spills with chemical absorber or vermiculite and dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.
