TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion on contact with: See Chemical Dangers.||NO contact with incompatible materials: See Chemical Dangers|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|Inhalation||Cough.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.||Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|Ingestion||See Effects of short-term exposure||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Vacuum spilled material with specialist equipment. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.||
Put breakable packaging into closed unbreakable container.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

|Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur along the food chain. The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
Chromates are classified as human carcinogens, but evidence for this substance is limited.
Lead chromate pigments may contain appreciable quantities of water-soluble lead compounds.
Toxic fumes (lead and chromium compounds) are also liberated during welding, cutting and heating of material treated with lead chromate.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Lead chromate occurs in nature as the minerals crocoite, phoenicochroite.
NEVER use a domestic-type vacuum cleaner to vacuum the substance, only use specialist equipment.
