EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure Limits

No value assigned for this specific material by the National Occupational

Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC). However as with all chemicals,

exposure should be kept to the least possible levels.

Respiratory Protection

Avoid breathing of vapours or mists. Where ventilation is inadequate and

vapours or mists are generated the use of an approved respirator with organic

vapour filter or a supplied air respirator complying with AS/NZS 1715 and

AS/NZS 1716 is recommended, depending on surrounding work conditions.

Final choice of appropriate breathing protection is dependant upon actual

airborne concentrations and the type of breathing protection required will

vary according to individual circumstances. Expert advice may be required

to make this decision. Reference should be made to Australian Standards

AS/NZS 1715 – Selection, Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protective

Devices; and AS/NZS 1716 – Respiratory Protective Devices.

Eye Protection

Safety glasses or face shield as appropriate. Refer to the Australian Standard

AS/NZS 1337 – Eye Protectors for Industrial Applications.

Hand Protection

Impervious rubber gloves (ie. neoprene, nitrile, natural) are recommended.

Final choice is dependant upon individual circumstances and a glove

manufacturer should be consulted for advice.

Body Protection

Impervious protective clothing where likely to be contaminated.

Eng. Controls

Where vapours or mists are generated and exposure standards are exceeded,

the use of respiratory protection, or a flame proof exhaust ventilation system

and equipment, as necessary, is recommended.

Hence, exposure without personal protection should be avoided.

Inhalation

May cause respiratory irritation.

Ingestion

May be harmful if swallowed.

Skin

May cause irritation in contact with the skin, which can result in redness,

itchiness, swelling and possibly lead to dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged

contact with this material may result in systematic absorption leading to

serious harmful and possibly toxic effects similar to those of ingestion and

inhalation.

Eye

Eye contact may cause eye irritation.

Chronic Effects

Prolonged and repeated exposure through skin contact, inhalation or

swallowing of this material with no personal protection may result in very

serious toxic effects.
