3: Hazards Identification Potential Acute Health Effects:
hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of
ingestion, of inhalation. Hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive), of eye
contact (corrosive). The amount of tissue damage depends on length of contact.
Eye contact can result in corneal damage or blindness. Skin contact can produce
inflammation and blistering. Inhalation of dust will produce irritation to
gastro-intestinal or respiratory tract, characterized by burning, sneezing and
coughing. Severe over-exposure can
lung damage, choking, unconsciousness or death. Inflammation of the eye is
characterized by redness, watering, and itching. Skin inflammation is
characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering.
Chronic Health Effects: CARCINOGENIC
EFFECTS: Not available. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS:
Not available. DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. Repeated exposure of the
eyes to a low level of dust can produce eye irritation. Repeated skin exposure
can produce local skin destruction, or dermatitis. Repeated inhalation of dust
can produce varying degree of respiratory irritation or lung damage.
4: First Aid Measures Eye Contact:
for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes
with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get
medical attention immediately.
Contact: In case of
contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes
while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an
emollient. Cold water may be used. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean
shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact: Wash with a
disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream.
Seek medical attention.
If inhaled, remove to
fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is
difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: Evacuate the
victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband. WARNING: It may be hazardous to the person
providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is
toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.
Do NOT induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to
an unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.
