First-aid measures

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear
an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial
respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. In case of inhalation of gas, symptoms may be delayed. Medical surveillance for at least 48
hours.

Ingestion: Get medical attention immediately. Wash out mouth with water.
Keep person warm and at rest. Ensure that the patient drinks
water, possibly with the addition of activated charcoal. Do not
induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If
unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention
immediately. Maintain an open airway.
Notes to medical doctor
Therapeutic measures: Elementary aid, decontamination,
symptomatic treatment and depending on the formation of
methaemoglobin: intravenous administration of toluidine blue or
other redox dyes according to dosage specifications plus ascorbic
acid.


Skin contact: Get medical attention immediately. Wash skin immediately with
plenty of water and soap. Subsequent cleansing with
polyethyleneglycol 400, then again with water and soap. Use no
solvent. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. In case of
blueness of lips, skin or nails (cyanosis) let the person breathe
oxygen. No consumption of alcohol after product contact. No
physical exertion. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash
clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Carefully clean hair, under the nails, and other hidden areas.

Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes,
keeping eyelids open. Get medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet.

Special exposure hazards: Combustible liquid. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst, with the risk of a subsequent explosion.
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving
any personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep
fire-exposed containers cool. This material is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Fire water contaminated with this material must be
contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway, sewer or drain.
Hazardous combustion products: Decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material.
Shut off all ignition sources. No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation.
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment

Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Very toxic to aquatic organisms.

Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations.
Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a
licensed waste disposal contractor.

Risk management measures - Occupational exposure controls

Technical measures: Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local
exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker
exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or
statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas,
vapour or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use
explosion-proof ventilation equipment. The substance shall be rigorously contained by technical means during its whole lifecycle including manufacture, purification,
cleaning and maintenance of equipment, sampling, analysis,
loading and unloading of equipment or vessels, waste disposal or
purification and storage. Procedural and control technologies shall
be used that minimise emission and any resulting exposure. In
cases of accident and where waste is generated, procedural and/or
control technologies shall be used to minimise emissions and the
resulting exposure during purification or cleaning and maintenance
procedures.

Organisational measures: Only properly trained and authorised personnel shall handle the substance. In the case of cleaning and maintenance works, special
procedures such as purging and washing shall be applied before
the system is opened and entered.

Risk management measures - Personal protection measures
