SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES

Description of first aid measures

Eye Contact

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 Contact

If skin or hair contact occurs:

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

Seek medical attention in event of irritation.

Inhalation

If fumes, aerosols or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.

Other measures are usually unnecessary.

Ingestion

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.

Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can comfortably drink.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treat symptomatically.

For abamectin (avermectins):

Toxicity following accidental ingestion may be minimised by emesis-induction within one half hour of exposure. Since abamectin is thought to bind to

glutamate-gated chloride ion channels, it is probably wise to avoid drugs that also interact with other ligand-gated chloride channels, including those that

enhance GABA activity in patients with potentially toxic abamectin exposure

Avoid drugs that enhance GABA activity (barbiturate, benzodiazepines, valproic acid, etc.).

MATERIAL DATA

For abamectin (avermectins)

CEL TWA: 0.04 mg/m3 [Manufacturer]

(CEL = Chemwatch Exposure Limit)

The acceptable daily intake (ADI) of 0.4 mg/day was derived using an NOAEL of 0.25 mg/kg/day from oral toxicity studies in dogs, adjusting for body

weight (50 kg) and by applying a composite uncertainty factor of 30 to account for interindividual variability, interspecies extrapolation and the severity of

the critical endpoint (neurotoxicity). The recommended

exposure standard and a wipe test criteria of 0.4 mg/100 cm2 were derived using the ADI.

Exposure controls

Appropriate

engineering controls

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. Ventilation can remove or dilute an air

contaminant if designed properly. The design of a ventilation system must match the particular process and chemical or

contaminant in use.

Employers may need to use multiple types of controls to prevent employee overexposure.

General exhaust is adequate under normal operating conditions. If risk of overexposure exists, wear SAA approved respirator.

Continued...

Correct fit is essential to obtain adequate protection. Provide adequate ventilation in warehouse or closed storage areas. Air

contaminants generated in the workplace possess varying "escape" velocities which, in turn, determine the "capture

velocities" of fresh circulating air required to effectively remove the contaminant.

Type of Contaminant:

Air Speed:

solvent, vapours, degreasing etc., evaporating from tank (in still air)

0.25-0.5 m/s

(50-100 f/min)

aerosols, fumes from pouring operations, intermittent container filling, low speed conveyer transfers,

welding, spray drift, plating acid fumes, pickling (released at low velocity into zone of active

generation)

0.5-1 m/s

(100-200 f/min.)

direct spray, spray painting in shallow booths, drum filling, conveyer loading, crusher dusts, gas

discharge (active generation into zone of rapid air motion)

1-2.5 m/s

(200-500 f/min)

grinding, abrasive blasting, tumbling, high speed wheel generated dusts (released at high initial velocity

into zone of very high rapid air motion).

2.5-10 m/s

(500-2000 f/min.)

Within each range the appropriate value depends on:

Lower end of the range

Upper end of the range

1: Room air currents minimal or favourable to capture

1: Disturbing room air currents

2: Contaminants of low toxicity or of nuisance value only

2: Contaminants of high toxicity

3: Intermittent, low production.

3: High production, heavy use

4: Large hood or large air mass in motion

4: Small hood - local control only

Simple theory shows that air velocity falls rapidly with distance away from the opening of a simple extraction pipe. Velocity

generally decreases with the square of distance from the extraction point (in simple cases). Therefore the air speed at the

extraction point should be adjusted, accordingly, after reference to distance from the contaminating source. The air velocity

at the extraction fan, for example, should be a minimum of 1-2 m/s (200-400 f/min.) for extraction of solvents generated in a

tank 2 meters distant from the extraction point. Other mechanical considerations, producing performance deficits within the

extraction apparatus, make it essential that theoretical air velocities are multiplied by factors of 10 or more when extraction

systems are installed or used.

Personal protection

Eye and face

protection

Safety glasses with side shields

Chemical goggles.

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

document, describing the wearing of lenses 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]

Skin protection

See Hand protection below

Hands/feet protection

The selection of suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality which vary from

manufacturer to manufacturer. Where the chemical is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove

material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.

The exact break through time for substances has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and.has to

be observed when making a final choice.

Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include:

frequency and duration of contact,

chemical resistance of glove material,

glove thickness and

dexterity

Select gloves tested to a relevant standard (e.g. Europe EN 374, US F739, AS/NZS 2161.1 or national equivalent).

When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 5 or higher (breakthrough time

greater than 240 minutes according to EN 374, AS/NZS 2161.10.1 or national equivalent) is recommended.

When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 3 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 60

minutes according to EN 374, AS/NZS 2161.10.1 or national equivalent) is recommended.

Some glove polymer types are less affected by movement and this should be taken into account when considering gloves

for long-term use.

Contaminated gloves should be replaced.

Gloves must only be worn on clean hands. After using gloves, hands should be washed and dried thoroughly. Application of a

non-perfumed moisturiser is recommended.

Information on toxicological effects

Inhaled

The material is not thought to produce either adverse health effects or irritation of the respiratory tract following inhalation (as

classified by EC Directives using animal models). Nevertheless, adverse systemic effects have been produced following

exposure of animals by at least one other route and good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum and

that suitable control measures be used in an occupational setting.

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

Ingestion

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

Skin Contact

The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or skin irritation following contact (as classified by EC

Directives using animal models). Nevertheless, good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum and that

suitable gloves be used in an occupational setting.

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

Entry into the blood-stream through, for example, cuts, abrasions, puncture wounds 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.

Eye

Although the liquid is not thought to be an irritant (as classified by EC Directives), direct contact with the eye may produce

transient discomfort characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness (as with windburn).

Chronic

Long-term exposure to the product is not thought to produce chronic effects adverse to health (as classified by EC

Directives using animal models); nevertheless exposure by all routes should be minimised as a matter of course.

24-month rat chronic feeding/ oncogenicity study and 94-week mouse chronic toxicity oncogenicity study were negative for

oncogenic potential. The results of a series of developmental toxicity studies (rat, rabbit, mouse) have been evaluated and

showed that avermectin B1 produces developmental toxicity (cleft palate) in the CF1 mouse. Toxicology data were also

evaluated for the delta-8,9-isomer of avermectin B1 which is a plant photodegradate that can range between 5 and 20 percent

of the residue on/in cottonseed. This isomer possesses avermectin-like toxicological activity. It was concluded that the delta

8,9-isomer also produces developmental toxicity (cleft palate) in mice, but not in rats. In addition to avermectin and its delta

8,9-isomer, toxicology data were also evaluated for the "polar degradates" of avermectin, which constitute a large percentage

(up to 70%) of the total residue on cottonseed. Review of the toxicology data indicated that these polar degradates do not

possess avermectin-like toxicological activity and for this reason need not be included in the tolerance expression for

residues in/on cottonseed.

Abamectin ( a mixture of avermectin isomers) is a reproductive toxin in laboratory animals at doses which are acutely toxic

to the mother. In development toxicity studies with abamectin, cleft palates were seen in mice and rabbits and clubbing of the

forepaws was seen in rabbits. The no-observed-adverse-effect-level (NOAEL) for maternal and developmental toxicity in

rabbits was 1 mg/kg/day. In CF-1 mice, a strain recognised to be particularly sensitive to avermectins, the NOAEL for

maternal toxicity was 0.05 mg/kg/day and the NOAEL for malformations was 0.2 mg/kg/day. Studies show that the

sensitivity of a subpopulation of CF-1 mice to avermectins is due to the absence of a transmembrane P-glycoprotein, a

significant component of the blood-brain interface that normally acts as a non-selective protective barrier in a wide range of

species including humans. CF-1 mice are therefore an unlikely candidate for assessing human risk. No evidence of

developmental toxicity was seen in oral studies in rats in the absence of maternal toxicity (NOAEL = 1.6 mg/kg/day). In a rat

multigenerational reproduction study, pup toxicity and deaths were seen at 0.4 mg/kg/day (NOAEL = 0.12 mg/kg/day).

Neonatal rats are not an appropriate model for assessing human risk in humans because (a) rat milk has a greater fat

content than human breast milk and abamectin concentrates in fat; (b) on a weight basis, the neonatal rat consumes

significantly greater quantities of milk than the newborn human and( c) the blood brain barrier in rodents is formed post-natally

(as evidenced by low P-glycoprotein levels) while in humans this membrane is formed pre-natally.

Ivermectin, a close structural analogue, has been used extensively in the treatment of human onchocerciasis at an oral

therapeutic dose of 0.2 mg/kg, without serious drug-related effects. Despite its wide usage in animals and humans,

ivermectin does dot appear to produce birth defects.

Abamectin is non-mutagenic in the Ames test and the micronucleus test.

Dietary carcinogenicity studies in mice and rats showed negative results. In a 14-week oral study in monkeys no effects

were seen at 0.2, 0.5 or 1.0 mg/kg/day; emesis was seen at 2.0 mg/kg/day; delayed pupillary obstruction at 6 and 8

mg/kg/day and mydriasis at 12 mg/kg/day.

In chronic oral toxicity, abamectin produced decreased body weight gain in mice (no-observed-adverse-effect-level (NOAEL)

= 1.5 mg/kg/day); tremors in rats (NOAEL = 1.5 mg/kg/day), weight loss, tremors, mydriasis, liver and gall bladder changes

and death in dogs (NOAEL = 0.25 mg/kg/day); and emesis, mydriasis and sedation in monkeys (NOAL = 1 mg/kg/day).

SECTION 13 DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Waste treatment methods

Product / Packaging

disposal

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

laws operating in their area. In some areas, certain wastes must be tracked.

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

Reduction

Reuse

Recycling

Disposal (if all else fails)

This material may be recycled if unused, or if it has not been contaminated so as to make it unsuitable for its intended use.

If it has been contaminated, it may be possible to reclaim the product by filtration, distillation or some other means. Shelf life

considerations should also be applied in making decisions of this type. Note that properties of a material may change in use,

and recycling or reuse may not always be appropriate.

The SDS is a Hazard Communication tool and should be used to assist in the Risk Assessment. Many factors determine whether the reported Hazards are

Risks in the workplace or other settings. Risks may be determined by reference to Exposures Scenarios. Scale of use, frequency of use and current or

available engineering controls must be considered.
