4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.
Skin Contact
In case of skin contact, wash off with soap and plenty of water. Take victim immediately to hospital.
Eye Contact
In case of eye contact, flush eyes with water as a precaution. Consult a physician.
Ingestion Contact
If swallowed, never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.
General Advice:
Consult a physician. Show this MSDS to the doctor in attendance. Move out of dangerous area.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Not flammable or combustible.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Hydrogen chloride gas, Barium oxide formed under fire conditions.
Protective Measure in Fire
Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear respiratory protection. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapors, mist, or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust.
Environment
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Spill Clean Up
Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Sweep up and shovel. Keep in suitable, close containers for disposal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
Usage Descriptions
Storage Precautions
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
Handling Precautions
Material is hygroscopic. Keep in a dry place.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
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
Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type N99 (US) or type P2 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a back up to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Protective Gloves
Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands.
Eye Protection
Face shield and safety glasses. Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Other Protection
Complete suit protecting against chemicals. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
Hygienic Work Practices
Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
