Protective Measure in Fire
Fire fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Immediately contact emergency personnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use suitable protective equipment.
Environment
Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains, and sewers.
Spill Clean Up
If emergency personnel are unavailable, vacuum or carefully scoop up spilled material and place in a appropriate container for disposal by incineration. Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing dust. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Handling Precautions

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Process Conditions
Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fumes, or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Respirators
Not applicable.
Protective Gloves
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
