 AVOID ALL CONTACT!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation   Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. 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.
