Eye

If in eyes, hold eyelids apart and flush continuously with running water. Continue flushing until advised to stop by a

Poisons Information Centre, a doctor, or for at least 15 minutes.

Skin

If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and flush skin and hair with running water. Continue

flushing with water until advised to stop by a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.

Inhalation

If inhaled, remove from contaminated area. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing.

Ingestion

For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 (Australia Wide) or a doctor (at once). If swallowed,

do not induce vomiting.

Advice to Doctor

Treat symptomatically.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Fire and

Explosion

Evacuate area and contact emergency services. Toxic gases may be evolved in a fire situation. Remain upwind

and notify those downwind of hazard. Wear full protective equipment including Self Contained Breathing

Apparatus (SCBA) when combating fire. Use waterfog to cool intact containers and nearby storage areas.

Extinguishing

Prevent contamination of drains or waterways.

Flammability

Non flammable. May evolve toxic gases (carbon/ sulphur/ phosphorus/ nitrogen oxides) when heated to

decomposition. May also evolve hydrogen chloride, ethyl sulphide and diethyl sulphide when heated to

decomposition.

Hazchem Code

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Spillage

Use personal protective equipment. Wash the contaminated surfaces with a mild bleach (sodium hypochlorite)

solution. For small spills, wear required protective equipment, then sweep up, contain and reuse spilt product.

Wash contaminated surfaces with a mild bleach solution.

Handling

Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, removed from moisture, oxidising agents, acids, alkalis, iron,

mild/galvanised steel, zinc, heat or ignition sources and foodstuffs. Ensure containers are adequately labelled,

protected from physical damage and sealed when not in use. Large storage areas should have appropriate fire

protection systems.

Storage

Before use carefully read the product label. Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin

contact and inhalation. Observe good personal hygiene, including washing hands before eating. Prohibit eating,

drinking and smoking in contaminated areas (eg. if container is damaged). Use only according to the label

directions.

Decomposition

Products

May evolve toxic gases (carbon/ sulphur/ phosphorus/ nitrogen oxides) when heated to decomposition.

May also evolve hydrogen chloride, ethyl sulphide and diethyl sulphide when heated to decomposition.

Hazardous Reactions

Polymerization is not expected to occur.

Health Hazard

Summary

Harmful. Use safe work practices to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation. Cholinesterase inhibitor resulting in

the accumulation of acetylcholine, causing rapid twitching of voluntary muscles and finally paralysis. Symptoms

may include headaches, dizziness, nausea, diarrhoea, muscle twitching, tremors, abdominal cramps, tightness in

chest, sweating, blurred vision, salivation, excessive urination and convulsions. Symptoms are often characterised

as short acting yet having complete and rapid reversibility. No adverse health effects are expected when the

product is used in accordance with label directions.

Eye

Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, lacrimation, pain, redness and blurring or dimness of vision.

Inhalation

Irritant. Over exposure to dust may result in irritation of the nose and throat, coughing, weakness, nausea,

vomiting and diarrhoea. High level exposure may result in dizziness, incoordination, excessive salivation,

sweating, and breathing difficulties. Cholinesterase inhibitor.

Skin

Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, redness, pain and rash. May be absorbed through skin with harmful effects.

The reported dermal LD50 is 40000 mg/kg.

Ingestion

Low to moderate toxicity. Ingestion may result in nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, fatigue, and

sweating and/or salivation. Ingestion of large quantities may result in breathing difficulties, muscle spasms and

convulsions. The reported oral LD50 (rat) is 2700 mg/kg.

INSECTICIDE

Product Name

Environment

Chlorpyrifos is highly toxic to birds, fish and bees, moderately toxic to pets and livestock, low toxicity to

earthworms and does not bioaccumulate. It has a half life of 6 to 280 days depending upon sunlight, soil type and

climatic conditions. Chlorpyrifos binds strongly to particles of soil and organic materials. It does not leach in soils

and is readily degraded by hydrolysis (12 hours to 6 days), microbial action and is lost by volatilisation.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Waste Disposal

For small amounts, the best way of disposing of the product is to use in accordance with the original label

directions. Contact the manufacturer if large amounts are involved. Empty containers should be disposed of by

wrapping in paper, placing in a plastic bag and putting in the garbage. Empty containers should not be burnt.

Legislation

Dispose of in accordance with relevant local legislation.
