The applying occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
The symptoms of asthma often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should never again come into contact with this substance.
