|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, dry powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 97°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 97°C use a closed system and ventilation.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||AVOID ALL CONTACT! PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||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||Abdominal pain. Burning sensation in the throat and chest. Vomiting.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .|

An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance; consult an expert.
The effectiveness of phenolic inhibitors is dependent on the presence of oxygen. Store under air rather than inert atmosphere.
