  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    NO open flames.    Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.   

   
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation   Avoid inhalation of dust.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes   Wear safety spectacles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Dizziness. Drowsiness. Tremor. Incoordination.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
