TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.     
 
EXPOSURE   AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation See Ingestion.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention. See Notes. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! See Ingestion.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . See Notes. 
Eyes   Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Cough. Muscle twitching. Dizziness. Pupillary constriction. Muscle cramps. Excessive salivation. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. Unconsciousness.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . See Notes. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.  Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
Marine pollutant.

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and irritating fumes including nitrogen oxides. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV not established.
MAK (not established):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly on spraying. 

Effects of short-term exposure
Cholinesterase inhibition. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. Exposure could cause death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance may have effects on the nervous system. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA

The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
