Reposition any leaking containers so as to

minimise further leakage.

Dam and absorb spill with an absorbent material

(e.g. sand or soil).

Shovel the absorbed spill into drums and top with

hydrated lime.

Disposal of the absorbent material will depend on

the extent of the spill.

For quantities up to 50L of product bury in a

secure land fill site.

For quantities greater than 50L seek advice

from the manufacturer before attempting

disposal. Contain in a secure location until

disposal method is established.

animal or human consumption. Store in its original

container well sealed.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROL / PERSONAL

PROTECTION:

EXPOSURE GUIDELINES: Exposure values at the

TWA (Time Weighted Average) means the average

airborne concentration of a particular substance when

calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5

day working week. A time weight average (TWA)

concentration for an 8 hour day, and 5 day week has

not been established by Worksafe Australia for any of

the ingredients in this product. There is a blanket

recommendation of 10mg/m

for inspirable dusts or

mists when limits have not otherwise been

established.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: In industrial situations,

concentration values below the TWA value should be

maintained. Values may be reduced by process

modification, use of local exhaust ventilation,

capturing substances at the source, or other methods.

If you believe air borne concentrations of mists, dusts

or vapours are high, you are advised to modify the

process or environment to reduce the problem.
