store in an area equipped with emergency water sprinklers. Use corrosion-resistant structural materials and
lighting and ventilation systems in the storage area. (See section 10)
Handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not swallow. Good housekeeping is important to prevent accumulation
of dust. Avoid generating dust. The use of compressed air for cleaning clothing, equipment, etc, is not recommended. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Handle and open container with care. When using do not eat or
drink. Wash hands before eating, drinking, or smoking. (See section 8)
