Methods and materials for
containment and cleaning up
Environmental precautions
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do
not touch or walk through spilled material. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. If
specialized clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any information in Section 8
on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the information in "For non-emergency
personnel".
Large Spills: Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses,
basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labeled
waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Note: see section 1 of SDS
for emergency contact information and section 13 of SDS for waste disposal.
Small Spills: Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a
designated, labeled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Note:
see section 1 of SDS for emergency contact information and section 13 of SDS for waste
disposal.
Avoid dispersal of spilled 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).
7. Handling and storage
Precautions for safe handling
Conditions for safe storage,
including any incompatibilities
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8 of SDS). Eating, drinking and
smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed.
Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. See also Section 8
for additional information on hygiene measures.
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct
sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10
of SDS) and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.
Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent
leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid
environmental contamination.

No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control
worker exposure to airborne contaminants. If this product contains ingredients with exposure
limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep
worker exposure below any recommended or statutory limits.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection
Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment
indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts.

Respiratory protection
Thermal hazards
General hygiene
considerations
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at
all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
Appropriate footwear and any additional skin protection measures should be selected based on
the task being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before
handling this product.
Use a properly fitted, particulate filter respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or
anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working limits of the
selected respirator.
None.
Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating,
smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques
should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Contaminated work clothing should
not be allowed out of the workplace. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that
eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
