|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||NO open flames.||Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion as a result of decomposition when heated.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache. Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Sweating. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Convulsions. Unconciousness. Weakness. See Ingestion.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Further see Inhalation.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Pupillary constriction.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Abdominal cramps. Confusion. Diarrhoea. Vomiting. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.||Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention .|
