8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling

the product.

Personal protective equipment

Eye/face protection Face shield and safety glasses Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under

appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Skin protection Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique

(without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

Body Protection Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected

according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Respiratory protection Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle

respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
