4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Skin Contact
Remove any contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Ingestion Contact
Get medical attention immediately. Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. After vomiting, a mixture of 1 tablespoon of sodium or magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts) dissolved in 8 oz. of water to drink maybe indicated to precipitate the barium as the nontoxic and insoluble barium sulfate.
Note to Physician
Monitor patients with significant ingestion for respiratory, cardiovascular, and blood pressure status. Watch for cardiac arrhythmias, respiratory failure due to flaccid paralysis of respiratory muscles, pulmonary edema, vocal cord paralysis, severe hypertension, and late effect kidney failure. Acute barium poisoning results in hypokalemia. The administration of fluids containing dilute concentrations of potassium salts may be indicated.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Hazardous Combustion Products
No information found.
Protective Measure in Fire
In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8.
Environment
Ventilate area of leak or spill.
Spill Clean Up
Sweep up and containerize for reclamation or disposal. Vacuuming or wet sweeping may be used to avoid dust dispersal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Usage Descriptions
Storage Precautions
Handling Precautions
Keep in a tightly closed container. Protect from physical damage. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area away from sources of heat, moisture and incompatibilities. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Process Conditions
For Soluble Barium Compounds: OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 0.5 mg (Ba)/m3 ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 0.5 mg (Ba)/m3 A4 - not classifiable as a human carcinogen
Respirators
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a half face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn for up to 10 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest.. A full-face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn up to 50 times the exposure limit, or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency, or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Protective Gloves
Wear impervious protective gloves.
Eye Protection
Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Protection
Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Hygienic Work Practices
No information found.
