Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional information about design of technical facilities:
Take care of sufficient ventilation. Avoid formation of dust.
Waste gases should be led into the atmosphere only via appropriate separators, scrubbers or incinerators.
Personal protective equipment, general protective and hygienic measures: Contaminated protective suit shall be cleaned before taking it off.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Store protective clothing separately.
Respiratory protection: Particle fi lter. The fi lter grade (P1 - P3) has to be established depending on work-place related limit values and the actual exposition.
Protection of hands: Protective gloves.
The following materials are known from experience to be suitable for protection against undissolved solids: rubber.
Eye protection: Safety glasses.
Body protection: Necessary protective suit has to be selected individually based on risk assessment.
