First-aid measures

Inhalation : Remove patient from exposure, keep warm and at rest. Obtain immediate medical attention.
Skin Contact : Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Obtain immediate medical attention.
Eye Contact : Irrigate with eyewash solution or clean water, holding the eyelids apart, for at least 10 minutes. Obtain immediate medical attention.
Ingestion : Wash out mouth with water and give 200-300ml of water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting as a First-Aid measure. Obtain immediate medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Symptomatic treatment and supportive therapy as indicated. Emergency medical treatment advice varies within different countries.For further information consult the Local National Poisons Information Services.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media (suitable): water spray, dry powder or carbon dioxide.
substance or mixture : If involved in a fire, it may burn and emit noxious and toxic fumes. Combustion products may include: nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
Special protective actions for fire-fighters : A self contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.

Accidental release measures

equipment and emergency procedures : Ensure suitable personal protection during removal of spillages.
Environmental Precautions : Prevent entry into drains, sewers or watercourses.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up : Avoid dust generation. Moisten spillages with water. Sweep up and shovel into waste drums or plastic bags. Transfer to a container for disposal. Wash the spillage area with water.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling : Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. The material can form flammable dust clouds in air. Dust clouds may be extremely sensitive to ignition by electrostatic discharge and other ignition sources. Ensure good earthing of equipment and personnel.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities : Keep container tightly closed. In the presence of oxygen and/or water, the material will decompose within a day, forming benzaldehyde.
Storage temperature : < 0 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Atmospheric levels should be controlled using the principles of good occupational hygiene practice as specified in the workplace risk assessment.Prevent entry into drains, sewers or watercourses.
Occupational exposure controls
Decisions about whether the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is appropriate as part of the control strategy should be based on the workplace risk assessment and should take account of local legislative requirements for selection and use. There are multiple factors that will affect the specific requirements such as amount and concentration of the material, duration of exposure, frequency of exposure, external environmental conditions, the task, the user etc. The information below should not be used in isolation and should be considered in the context of the workplace risk assessment on a case by case basis.
Respiratory protection
Use a negative pressure air purifying respirator (half face mask) with filter class P3 if the risk assessment does not support the selection of other protection.
Skin protection
Use protective clothing to protect against direct contact with the substance if the risk assessment does not support the selection of other protection. Use impervious protective gloves to protect against direct contact with the substance. If the substance is dissolved or wetted use a glove material that is resistant to the solvent/liquid.
Eye protection
Use safety glasses to protect against direct contact with the substance if the risk assessment does not support the selection of other protection.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity : No known reactivity hazard under normal conditions.
Chemical stability : Stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions : None known.
Conditions to avoid : No conditions producing hazardous situations known.
Incompatible materials : None known.
Hazardous decomposition products : No hazardous decomposition products are known.

Disposal considerations

Chemical DisposalWaste treatment methods : Normal disposal is via incineration operated by an accredited disposal contractor. Waste, even small quantities, should never be poured down drains, sewers or water courses. This material and/or its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Disposal should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation.
