Ethylbenzene has harmonized at EU level
classifications and it is classified as a highly flammable (F; R11/
Flam. Liq. 2) liquid substance. Therefore, no further testing for
irritation properties is required for ethylbenzene.
From the data available for
ethylbenzene, it is likely that liquid ethylbenzene or high
concentrations of ethylbenzene vapour in the air may cause irritation of
skin, and eye. Moreover, accidental skin and/or eye contact with liquid
ethylbenzene may take place. However,
this scenario could be relevant for occupational settings only.
In general, appropriate engineering
controls and work practices to reduce employee exposure to the lowest
level achievable must be in place with additional suitable skin, eye,
face and respiratory protection in work areas and operations with high
risks of exposure to ethylbenzene.
Appropriate skin, eye
and face protection is a part of the Guidance on safe Use of
ethylbenzene recommended here.
