Exposure controls / personal protection

Limitation of exposure on workplace: Observe occupational exposure limits and minimise the risk of inhalation of dust. All handling to take place in well-ventilated area. An eye wash bottle must be available at the work site. The use of closed processes and personal protective equipments significantly minimize worker exposure to the substance.

Product-related measures to prevent exposure: The implementation of RMMs should ensure that the likelihood of an event occurring due to the LAS hazards is negligible and the risk is considered to be controlled to a level of no concern.

Respiratory protection Use specified dust masks.

Hand protection Neoprene, nitrile, polyethylene or PVC.

Eye protection If risk of splashing, wear safety goggles or face shield.

Skin protection (except hands): Wear appropriate clothing to prevent reasonably probable skin contact.
Skin protection remark: Use appropriate skin cream to prevent drying of skin.
Specific hygiene measures: Use appropriate skin cream to prevent drying of skin.
