4.1 Description of first aid measures

General advice

Move out of dangerous area. Place and transport victim in stable position (lying sideways). Remove contaminated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.

Inhalation

Move to fresh air. Keep patient warm and at rest. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Skin contact

Wash off thoroughly with plenty of soap and water, if available with polyethyleneglycol 400, subsequently rinse with water. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Eye contact

Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

Ingestion

Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting only, if:

1. patient is fully conscious

2. medical aid is not readily available

3. a significant amount (more than a mouthful) has been ingested

4. time since ingestion is less than 1 hour. (Vomit should not get into the respiratory tract.)

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms

If large amounts are ingested, the following symptoms may occur: Dizziness, Abdominal pain, Nausea

4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment

Treat symptomatically. Monitor: respiratory and cardiac functions. In case of ingestion gastric lavage should be considered in cases of significant ingestions only within the first 2 hours. However, the application of activated charcoal and sodium sulphate is always advisable. There is no specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable

Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable

High volume water jet

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In the event of fire the following may be released:, Hydrogen chloride (HCl), Hydrogen cyanide (hydrocyanic acid), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

5.3 Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters

In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information

Contain the spread of the fire-fighting media. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Precautions

Avoid dust formation. Avoid contact with spilled product or contaminated surfaces. Remove all sources of ignition. Use personal protective equipment.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Do not allow to get into surface water, drains and ground water.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up

Avoid dust formation and electrical charging (sparking) because dust explosion might occur. Use mechanical handling equipment. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling

Avoid dust formation. Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Dust may form explosive mixture in air.

Hygiene measures

Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Keep working clothes separately. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Remove soiled clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again. Garments that cannot be cleaned must be destroyed (burnt).

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store in original container. Store in a place accessible by authorized persons only.

Advice on common storage

Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Suitable materials

LDPE (low density polyethylene), Polypropylene-foil (PP)

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters

Components       CAS-No.              Control parameters       Update       Basis

Imidacloprid

      138261-41-3              0.7 mg/m3 (TWA)              OES BCS

8.2 Exposure controls

Respiratory protection

Wear respirator with a particle filter mask (protection factor 10) conforming to European Norm EN149FFP2 or EN140P2 or equivalent.

Respiratory protection should only be used to control residual risk of short duration activities, when all reasonably practicable steps have been taken to reduce exposure at source e.g. containment and/or local extract ventilation. Always follow respirator manufacturer's instructions regarding wearing and maintenance.

Hand protection

Wear CE Marked (or equivalent) nitrile rubber gloves (minimum thickness of 0,4 mm, minimum rate of permeability 480 min). Wash when contaminated and dispose of when contaminated inside, when perforated or when contamination on the outside cannot be removed. Wash hands frequently and always before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.

Eye protection

Wear goggles (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 5 or equivalent).

Skin and body protection

Wear standard coveralls and Category 3 Type 5 suit.

If there is a risk of significant exposure, consider a higher protective type suit.

Wear two layers of clothing wherever possible. Polyester/cotton or cotton overalls should be worn under chemical protection suit and should be professionally laundered frequently.
