|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Many reactions may cause fire or explosion. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Risk of fire and explosion. See Chemical Dangers.||NO contact with flammables. NO contact with incompatible substances. See Chemical Dangers.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water. NO direct contact with water.|
|AVOID ALL CONTACT! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Sore throat. Shortness of breath. Wheezing. Laboured breathing. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use breathing protection. Use closed system and ventilation.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer immediately for medical attention. Artificial respiration may be needed. See Notes.|
|Skin||Redness. Burning sensation. Pain. Serious skin burns.||Cold-insulating gloves. Protective clothing.||First rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Eyes||Watering of the eyes. Redness. Blurred vision. Pain. Burns.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: gas-tight chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Ventilation. Remove gas with fine water spray. Shut off cylinder if possible. Isolate the area until the gas has dispersed. NEVER direct water jet on liquid.||

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
|The symptoms of lung oedema 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.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
Do NOT use in the vicinity of a fire or a hot surface, or during welding.
Do NOT spray water on a leaking cylinder (to prevent corrosion of the cylinder).
Turn leaking cylinder with the leak up to prevent escape of gas in liquid state.
