- The Non-Regulatory United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) limits, if shown,
are the Vacated 1989 PEL's (vacated by 58 FR 35338, June 30, 1993).
- The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is a voluntary organization of
professional industrial hygiene personnel in government or educational institutions in the United States. The ACGIH
develops and publishes recommended occupational exposure limits each year called Threshold Limit Values (TLVs)
for hundreds of chemicals, physical agents, and biological exposure indices.
Additional Advice: Ingestion: Use good personal hygiene. Do not consume or store food in the work area. Wash
hands before smoking or eating.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels
below exposure limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines,
general ventilation should be sufficient for most operations. Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some
operations.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:
Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side-shields. For dusty operations or when handling solutions of the
material, wear chemical goggles.
Skin and Body Protection: Wear clean, body-covering clothing.
Hand Protection: Use gloves chemically resistant to this material. If hands are cut or scratched, use gloves
chemically resistant to this material even for brief exposures. Examples of preferred glove barrier materials
include: Neoprene, Polyvinyl chloride ("PVC" or "vinyl"), Nitrile/butadiene rubber ("nitrile" or "NBR"). NOTICE: The
selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into
account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical
requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials,
as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.
Respiratory Protection: Respiratory protection should be worn when there is a potential to exceed the exposure
limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, wear
respiratory protection when adverse effects, such as respiratory irritation or discomfort have been experienced, or
where indicated by your risk assessment process. In dusty or misty atmospheres, use an approved particulate
respirator. The following should be effective types of air-purifying respirators: High efficiency particulate air (HEPA)
N95. A respiratory protection program that meets 29 CFR 1910.134 must be followed whenever workplace
conditions warrant use of a respirator.

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
Eye contact:
For solid: May cause slight eye irritation, mechanical injury only. Dust formation
should be avoided, as dust can cause severe eye irritation with corneal injury.
Skin contact:
Brief contact is essentially nonirritating to skin. Prolonged contact may cause skin
irritation, even a burn. Not classified as corrosive to the skin according to DOT
guidelines. May cause more severe response if skin is damp, abraded (scratched
or cut), or covered by clothing, gloves, or footwear.
Inhalation:
Dust may cause irritation to upper respiratory tract (nose and throat).
Ingestion:
Low toxicity if swallowed. Small amounts swallowed incidentally as a result of
normal handling operations are not likely to cause injury; however, swallowing
larger amounts may cause local mucosal damage to esophagus and stomach.
Swallowing may result in gastrointestinal irritation or ulceration.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________
ECOTOXICITY DATA:
Aquatic Toxicity:
Material is practically non-toxic to aquatic organisms on an acute basis. (LC50/EC50/EL50/LL50 >100 mg/L in the
most sensitive species tested).
Freshwater Fish Toxicity:
Calcium Chloride: LC50, bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus): 8,350 - 10,650 mg/l
Potassium Chloride: LC50, rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), 96 h: 4,236 mg/l

Potassium Chloride: EC50, water flea Daphnia magna, 24 h, immobilization: 590 mg/l
LC50, water flea Ceriodaphnia dubia, 96 h: 3,470 mg/l
Sodium Chloride: LC50, water flea Daphnia magna: 4,571 mg/l
Other Toxicity:
Sodium Chloride: IC50, OECD 209 Test; activated sludge, respiration inhibition: > 1,000 mg/l
FATE AND TRANSPORT:
BIODEGRADATION: This material is inorganic and not subject to biodegradation.
PERSISTENCE: Calcium chloride is believed not to persist in the environment because it is readily dissociated
into calcium and chloride ions in water. Calcium chloride released into the environment is thus likely to be
distributed into water in the form of calcium and chloride ions. Calcium ions may remain in soil by binding to soil
particulate or by forming stable salts with other ions. Chloride ions are mobile and eventually drain into surface
water. Both ions originally exist in nature, and their concentrations in surface water will depend on various factors,
such as geological parameters, weathering, and human activities.
BIOCONCENTRATION: No bioconcentration is expected because of the relatively high water solubility. Potential
for mobility in soil is very high (Koc between 0 and 50). Partitioning from water to n-octanol is not applicable.
BIOACCUMULATIVE POTENTIAL: Calcium chloride and its dissociated forms (calcium and chloride ions) are
ubiquitous in the environment. Calcium and chloride ions can also be found as constituents in organisms.
Considering its dissociation properties, calcium chloride is not expected to accumulate in living organisms.
MOBILITY IN SOIL: Calcium chloride is not expected to be absorbed in soil due to its dissociation properties and
high water solubility. It is expected to dissociate into calcium and chloride free ions or it may form stable inorganic
or organic salts with other counter ions, leading to different fates between calcium and chloride ions in soil and
water components. Calcium ions may bind to soil particulate or may form stable inorganic salts with sulfate and
carbonate ions. The chloride ion is mobile in soil and eventually drains into surface water because it is readily
dissolved in water.
