4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation:

Remove victim from area of exposure - avoid becoming a casualty. Remove contaminated clothing and loosen remaining

clothing. Allow patient to assume most comfortable position and keep warm. Keep at rest until fully recovered. If patient

finds breathing difficult and develops a bluish discolouration of the skin (which suggests a lack of oxygen in the blood -

cyanosis), ensure airways are clear of any obstruction and have a qualified person give oxygen through a face mask.

Apply artificial respiration if patient is not breathing. Seek immediate medical advice. Seek immediate medical advice.

Skin Contact:

If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin with running water. If irritation occurs seek medical

advice.

Eye Contact:

If in eyes, wash out immediately with water. In all cases of eye contamination it is a sensible precaution to seek medical

advice.

Safety Data Sheet

Ingestion:

If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water. Seek immediate medical assistance.

Medical attention and special treatment:

Treat symptomatically.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Hazards from combustion products:

Flammable gas. May form flammable vapour mixtures with air. Avoid all ignition sources. All potential sources of ignition

(open flames, pilot lights, furnaces, spark producing switches and electrical equipment etc) must be eliminated both in

and near the work area. Do NOT smoke. Flameproof equipment is necessary in all areas where this chemical is being

used. Nearby equipment must be earthed. Vapour may travel a considerable distance to source of ignition and flash

back.

Precautions for fire fighters and special protective equipment:

Keep containers cool with water spray. Fire fighters to wear self-contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective

clothing if risk of exposure to vapour or products of combustion.

Suitable Extinguishing Media:

Fine water spray, normal foam, dry agent (carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder).

Hazchem Code: 2YE

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Methods and materials for containment and clean up:

Shut off all possible sources of ignition. In the event of an aerosol can developing a leak, allow to fully discharge in the

open air before disposal.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Conditions for safe storage:

Store in cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from oxidising agents. Store away from sources of heat or

ignition. Keep containers closed when not in use - check regularly for leaks.

Precautions for safe handling:

Keep out of reach of children. Avoid skin and eye contact. Ensure spray nozzle is always directed away from the user.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Occupational Exposure Limits: No value assigned for this specific material by the National Occupational Health and

Safety Commission. However, Exposure Standard(s) for constituent(s):

Butane: 8hr TWA = 1900 mg/m

(800 ppm)

Propane: Asphyxiant

Pyrethrum: 8hr TWA = 5 mg/m

Safety Data Sheet

As published by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission.

TWA - The time-weighted average airborne concentration over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week

over an entire working life.

Asphyxiant - gases which can lead to reduction of oxygen concentration by displacement or dilution. The minimum

oxygen content in air should be 18% by volume under normal atmospheric pressure.

`Sen' Notice - sensitiser. The substance can cause a specific immune response in some people. An affected individual

may subsequently react to exposure to minute levels of that substance.

These Exposure Standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards. All atmospheric

contamination should be kept to as low a level as is workable. These exposure standards should not be used as fine

dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals. They are not a measure of relative toxicity.

Engineering controls:

Use in well ventilated areas. Vapour heavier than air - prevent concentration in hollows or sumps. DO NOT enter

confined spaces where vapour may have collected. Keep containers closed when not in use.

Personal Protective Equipment:

No special personal protective equipment required. Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the

toilet.
