DANGER
FLAMMABLE GAS, MAY CAUSE FLASH FIRE. GAS
UNDER PRESSURE. MAY CAUSE FROSTBITE. MAY
IRRITATE EYES AND SKIN.
WHMIS
Colour:
Physical State:
Odour:
Personal Protection Equipment
Potential Health Effects:
See Section 11 for more information.
Likely Routes of Exposure:
Eye contact. Skin contact. Inhalation.
Colourless.
Gas.
Hydrocarbon.
TDG (Ground)
Eye:
Contact with rapidly expanding or liquefied gas may cause irritation and/or frostbite.
Signs/symptoms may include redness, swelling, pain, tearing, and blurred or hazy vision.
The pain after contact with liquid can quickly subside. Permanent eye damage or blindness
could result.
Skin:
Contact with rapidly expanding or liquefied gas may cause irritation and/or frostbite.
Symptoms of frostbite include change in skin color to white or grayish-yellow. The pain
after contact with liquid can quickly subside.
Ingestion:
Not a normal route of exposure.
Inhalation:
May cause respiratory tract irritation. Signs/symptoms may include cough, sneezing, nasal
discharge, headache, hoarseness, and nose and throat pain. This product is classified as a
simple asphyxiant. Adverse health effects occur as a result of the displacement of oxygen.
Central nervous system depression can occur if product is present in concentrations that
will reduce the oxygen content of air below 18% (vol). Symptoms may include headache,
light-headedness, drowsiness, disorientation, vomiting and seizures. Unconsciousness and
death may occur with severe oxygen deprivation. Recent studies suggest light
hydrocarbons in high concentrations may produce narcotic effects including dizziness,
headache and fatigue.

Section 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye Contact:
Contact with rapidly expanding or liquefied gas may cause irritation and/or
frostbite. Flush eyes with plenty of warm water for at least 15 minutes. Get
medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact:
Contact with rapidly expanding or liquefied gas may cause irritation and/or
frostbite. Flush immediately with warm water. Remove non-adhering
contaminated clothing. Do not remove adherent material or clothing. Get medical
attention immediately.
Ingestion:
Not a normal route of exposure.
Inhalation:
Remove person to fresh air. If breathing has stopped apply artificial respiration. If
signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.
General Advice:
In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show
the label or MSDS where possible).
Note to Physicians:
Symptoms may not appear immediately.
Section 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flammability:
Flammable gas by WHMIS criteria. Flammable gas by OSHA criteria. Cool containing
vessels with water jet in order to prevent pressure build-up, auto-ignition or explosion.
May be ignited by contact with heat, sparks or open flame. Gas may accumulate in
confined spaces. Gas can travel considerable distances to ignition sources and cause
a flash fire.
Means of Extinction
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media:
Dry chemical, foam, or carbon dioxide.
Water may not be an effective medium to extinguish fire.
Products of Combustion:
Oxides of carbon.
Protection of Firefighters:
Do not extinguish fire if source of gas cannot be safely turned off. If
flames are accidentally extinguished explosive re-ignition may
occur if ignition sources are not controlled. Be alert to container
rupture potential if tanks are involved in a fire. Keep upwind of fire.
Wear full fire fighting turn-out gear (full Bunker gear) and respiratory
protection (SCBA).

Sensitivity to Mechanical Impact:
Sensitivity to Static Discharge:
This material is not sensitive to mechanical impact.
This material is sensitive to static discharge.
Section 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions:
Evacuate all unnecessary personnel. Stay upwind. Eliminate all ignition
sources. Use personal protection recommended in Section 8. Isolate the
hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
Environmental Precautions:
Prevent spreading of vapors through sewers, ventilation systems and
confined areas.
Methods for Containment:
Control release of gas if without risk.
Methods for Clean-Up:
Isolate area until gas has dispersed.
Other Information:
Dispose of in accordance with all federal, provincial and local
regulations. Comply with federal, provincial, and local requirements for
spill and/or release notification.
Section 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded.
Wash hands before eating, drinking, or smoking. See Section 8 for information on Personal Protective
Equipment.
Storage:
Store in cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible materials, heat, and sources of ignition. All
storage containers and pumping equipment should be grounded. Keep out of the reach of children.

Engineering Controls:
Use ventilation adequate to keep exposures (airborne levels of
dust, fume, vapour, gas, etc.) below recommended exposure
limits. Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment.
Personal Protective Equipment
Eye/Face Protection:
Safety glasses are recommended.
Hand Protection:
Wear impervious gloves. Consult manufacturer specifications for
further information.
Skin and Body Protection:
Wear suitable protective clothing. Flame resistant clothing such as
Nomex ® is recommended in areas where material is stored or
handled.
Respiratory Protection:
If engineering controls and ventilation are not sufficient to control
exposure to below the allowable limits then an appropriate
NIOSH/MSHA approved air-purifying respirator or self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used. Supplied air
breathing apparatus must be used when oxygen concentrations
are low or if airborne concentrations exceed the limits of the airpurifying respirators.
General Hygiene Considerations:
Handle according to established industrial hygiene and safety
practices.
