Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering Controls:

Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure

limits. However it is the duty of the user to verify this and follow given exposure limits at the workplace.

General Hygiene Considerations:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Personal Protective Equipment:

Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side-shields. If airborne dust concentrations are excessive, wear goggles.

Skin and Body Protection: Protective clothing and gloves may be worn to reduce the potential of mechanical irritation.

Respiratory Protection: If exposed to airborne dust, use appropriate NIOSH approved (or equivalent) respiratory protection.

In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment.
