Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

SWALLOWED

If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting.

If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and

prevent aspiration.

Observe the patient carefully.

Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious.

EYE

If this product comes in contact with the eyes:

Wash out immediately with fresh running water.

Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting

the upper and lower lids.

Seek medical attention without delay; if pain persists or recurs seek medical attention.

Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.

SKIN

If skin contact occurs:

Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear.

Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).

For calcium carbonate:

The TLV-TWA is thought to be protective against the significant risk of physical irritation associated with exposure.

PERSONAL PROTECTION

RESPIRATOR

Particulate. (AS/NZS 1716 & 1715, EN 143:2000 & 149:2001, ANSI Z88 or national equivalent)

EYE

No special equipment for minor exposure i.e. when handling small quantities.

OTHERWISE:

Safety glasses with side shields.

Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document,

describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a

review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and

first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of

chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at

the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed

hands thoroughly. [CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59], [AS/NZS 1336 or national equivalent].

HANDS/FEET

Wear general protective gloves, eg. light weight rubber gloves.

Experience indicates that the following polymers are suitable as glove materials for protection against undissolved, dry solids,

OTHER

No special equipment needed when handling small quantities.

OTHERWISE:

Overalls.

Barrier cream.

Eyewash unit.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

None required when handling small quantities.

OTHERWISE:.

Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard. Well-designed engineering

controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide this

high level of protection.

The basic types of engineering controls are:

Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.

Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilation

that strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment.

CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO INSTABILITY

Presence of incompatible materials.

Product is considered stable.

Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.

For incompatible materials - refer to Section 7 - Handling and Storage.

Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS

ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS

SWALLOWED

Accidental ingestion of the material may be damaging to the health of the individual.

Acute potassium poisoning after swallowing is rare, because vomiting usually occurs and renal excretion is fast. Potassium causes

a slow, weak pulse, irregularities in heart rhythm, heart block and an eventual fall in blood pressure. Breathing initially

becomes faster but the muscles of breathing eventually become paralysed. There can be loss of appetite, extreme thirst, increased

volumes of urine, fever, convulsions and gastric disturbances; death may then occur due to failure of breathing and inflammation

of the stomach and bowel.

Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

EYE

This material may produce eye irritation in some persons and produce eye damage 24 hours or more after instillation. Moderate

inflammation may be expected with redness; conjunctivitis may occur with prolonged exposure.

SKIN

Repeated exposure may cause skin cracking, flaking or drying following normal handling and use.

There is some evidence to suggest that the material may cause mild but significant inflammation of the skin either following

direct contact or after a delay of some time. Repeated exposure can cause contact dermatitis which is characterised by redness,

swelling and blistering.

Irritation and skin reactions are possible with sensitive skin.

Open cuts, abraded or irritated skin should not be exposed to this material.

Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects.

Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.

INHALED

There is some evidence to suggest that the material can cause respiratory irritation in some persons. The body's response to

such irritation can cause further lung damage.

Persons with impaired respiratory function, airway diseases and conditions such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, may incur

further disability if excessive concentrations of particulate are inhaled.

If prior damage to the circulatory or nervous systems has occurred or if kidney damage has been sustained, proper screenings

should be conducted on individuals who may be exposed to further risk if handling and use of the material result

in excessive exposures.

Not normally a hazard due to non-volatile nature of product.

CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS

Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause drying with cracking, irritation and possible dermatitis following.

Substance accumulation, in the human body, may occur and may cause some concern following repeated or long-term occupational

exposure.

Pure calcium carbonate does not cause the disease pneumoconiosis probably due to its rapid elimination from the body. However,

its unsterilised particulates can infect the lung and airway to cause inflammation.

Long term exposure to high dust concentrations may cause changes in lung function i.e. pneumoconiosis; caused by particles less

than 0.5 micron penetrating and remaining in the lung. Prime symptom is breathlessness; lung shadows show on X-ray.

Section 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/ or territory. Each user must refer to laws

operating in their area.

A Hierarchy of Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate:

Reduction.

DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning or process equipment to enter drains.

It may be necessary to collect all wash water for treatment before disposal.

In all cases disposal to sewer may be subject to local laws and regulations and these should be considered first.

Where in doubt contact the responsible authority.

Recycle wherever possible or consult manufacturer for recycling options.

Consult State Land Waste Management Authority for disposal.

Bury residue in an authorised landfill.
