Concentrate Spraying

Use a sprayer designed

and matched to the crop being sprayed.

Set up

operate the sprayer to achieve even coverage throughout the crop canopy using your chosen water volume.

Determine an appropriate dilute spray volume (See Dilute Spraying above) for the crop canopy.

This-is needed to calculate the

SKIN CONTACT

:

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

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

INHALATION

:

Remove from source of exposure to fresh air. Seek medical assistance if the effects persist.

** SHOW THIS SAFETY DATA SHEET TO A DOCTOR **

FIRST AID FACILITIES

:

Potable water should be available to rinse eyes or skin. Provide eye baths and safety showers.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN

:

Treat symptomatically.

5. FIRE FIGHTING METHODS

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

:

Water spray, foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical powder.

HAZARDS FROM COMBUSTION

:

The product is non-combustible but may decompose emitting oxides of copper and

chlorine. The packaging material may burn to emit noxious fumes.

PRECAUTIONS FOR FIRE FIGHTERS AND

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

:

Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus to minimise risk of

exposure to vapour or products of combustion.

HAZCHEM CODE

:

None.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

:

Ensure adequate ventilation, work up wind or increase ventilation. Keep spectators

away – rope off the area. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Wear protective

equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination.

METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR

CONTAINMENT AND CLEAN UP

:

Contain the spill and prevent contamination into confined areas, drains and

waterways.

Avoid generating dust. Carefully scoop up, or shovel up uncontaminated product for

re-use. Sweep up contaminated material and seal in properly labelled drums for

disposal in an area approved by local authority by-laws. Wash area down with plenty

of water.

Incineration of disposed material is not recommended, as it is unlikely to adequately

burn.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

:

Keep containers closed at all times - check regularly for leaks or spills. Transport and

store upright. Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact. Do not eat,

drink or smoke in contaminated areas. Always remove contaminated clothing and

wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated

clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE

:

Store in the original container, in a cool dry well-ventilated area out of sunlight and

away from incompatible materials and foodstuffs.

Keep containers closed when not in use to ensure contamination does not occur. Do

not combine part drums of the same product, as this may be a source of

contamination. Do not mix with other chemicals.

This material is a Scheduled Poison S6 and must be stored, maintained and used in

accordance with the relevant regulations.

PERSONAL

PROTECTIVE

EQUIPMENT

:

Protective equipment must be worn at all times. Risk assessments should always be conducted to identify

the hazards and in turn determine the appropriate personal protective equipment for the hazard.

Protective gloves: elbow-length natural rubber or nitrile impervious gloves. Always check with the glove

manufacturer or your personal protective equipment supplier regarding the correct type of glove to use.

Consult AS/NZS 2161 for further information.

Eye protection: safety glasses/goggles with side shield protection. Consult AS/NZS 1336 and AS/NZS

1337 for further information.

Clothing and footwear: waterproof apron, coveralls, trousers, long sleeved shirt, closed in shoes and/or

safety footwear. Consult AS/NZS 2210 and AS/NZS 2919 for further information.

Respiratory Protection: Avoid breathing dust. Where ventilation is not adequate, respiratory protection

may be required. Any P1 or P2 particulate filter respirator meeting the requirements of AS/NZS 1715 and
