kebakaran

Gunakan alat pelindung diri.

Metode pemadaman khusus

Residu kebakaran dan air bekas pemadam kebakaran yang tercemar

harus dibuang sesuai dengan peraturan lokal. Jika terjadi kebakaran

dan/atau ledakan, jangan menghirup asap.

BAGIAN 6. TINDAKAN PENANGGULANGAN JIKA TERJADI TUMPAHAN DAN KEBOCORAN

Tindakan pencegahan

pribadi, peralatan pelindung

dan prosedur darurat

Pastikan ventilasi memadai. Jauhkan orang dari tumpahan/bocoran ke

arah yang berlawanan dengan arah angin. Hindari penghirupan,

penelanan dan kontak langsung dengan kulit dan mata. Jika karyawan

menghadapi konsentrasi yang melebihi ambang batas pajanan,

mereka harus memakai alat bantu pernapasan yang memenuhi

standar. Pastikan agar pembersihan dilakukan hanya oleh petugas

terlatih. Mengaculah pada langkah-langkah perlindungan yang

dicantumkan dalam seksi 7 dan 8.

Tindakan pencegahan untuk

melindungi lingkungan

Jangan sampai mengenai tanah, air permukaan atau air tanah.

Metode dan bahan untuk

penyimpanan dan

pembersihan

Hentikan kebocoran jika aman untuk melakukannya.Tahan dan

kumpulkan tumpahan dengan bahan penyerap yang tidak mudah

terbakar (misalnya pasir, tanah, tanah diatomaceus, vermiculite) dan

tempatkan dalam kontener untuk dibuang berdasarkan peraturan

lokal/nasional (lihat seksi 13).Siramlah sisa-sisa dengan air.Untuk

tumpahan dalam jumlah banyak, bendung tumpahan bahan atau

tumpahan yang mengandung bahan materi untuk memastikan agar

tidak mengalir menuju saluran air.

BAGIAN 7. PENANGANAN DAN PENYIMPANAN

saran penanganan yang

aman

Jangan dimakan. Jangan menghirup

debu/asap/gas/kabut/uap/semburan. Gunakan hanya dengan ventilasi

yang cukup. Cucilah tangan bersih-bersih setelah menangani. Jangan

terkena mata, kulit atau pakaian. Jangan dicampur dengan pemutih

atau produk lain yang mengandung klor - akan menyebabkan gas

klorin.

Kondisi untuk penyimpanan

yang aman

Jauhkan dari zat-zat basa kuat. Jauhkan dari jangkauan anak-anak.

Jaga wadah tertutup rapat. Simpan dalam wadah yang berlabel

sesuai.
