4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion Contact
Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Danger

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire. Do not allow water runoff to enter sewers or waterways.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Not combustible but is a hazardous oxidizing material. Contact with easily oxidizable substances may cause ignition, violent combustion or explosion. Increases the flammability of combustible materials.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Strong oxidants may explode when shocked, or if exposed to heat, flame, or friction. Also may act as initiation source for dust or vapor explosions.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Lead nitrate can decompose to form toxic oxides of nitrogen and lead in fire situations.
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. US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.
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
Ensure good ventilitation at the workplace
Usage Descriptions
Open and handle container with care. Keep container tightly sealed when not in use.
Storage Precautions
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well ventilated place
Handling Precautions
Keep in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area away from sources of heat or ignition. Protect against physical damage. Store separately from reactive or combustible materials, and out of direct sunlight. Isolate from incompatible substances. Areas in which exposure to lead metal or lead compounds may occur should be identified by signs or appropriate means, and access to the area should be limited to authorized persons. 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 lead, metal and inorganic dusts and fumes, as Pb: -OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 0.05 mg/m3 (TWA) For lead, elemental and inorganic compounds, as Pb: -ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 0.05 mg/m3 (TWA), A3 animal carcinogen ACGIH Biological Exposure Indices (BEI): 30 ug/100ml, notation B (see actual Indices for more information). For lead, inorganic: -NIOSH Recommended Exposure Limit (REL): 0.1 mg/m3 (TWA)
Respirators
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a half-face high efficiency particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filter) may be worn for up to ten 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 high efficiency particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filter) 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 gloves
Eye Protection
Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. 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
Eating, drinking, and smoking should not be permitted in areas where solids or liquids containing lead compounds are handled, processed, or stored. See OSHA substance-specific standard for more information on personal protective equipment, engineering and work practice controls, medical surveillance, record keeping, and reporting requirements. (29 CFR 1910.1025).
