Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional information about design of technical facilities: Take care of sufficient ventilation. Avoid formation of dust.
Waste gases should be led into the atmosphere only via appropriate separators, scrubbers or incinerators.
8.2 Exposure controls:
Personal protective equipment
General protective and hygienic measures: Contaminated protective suit shall be cleaned before takeing it off.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Store protective clothing separately.
Respiratory protection: Particle filter. The filter grade (P1 - P3) has to be established depending on work-place related limit values and the actual exposition.
Protection of hands: Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
For the permanent contact gloves made of the following materials are suitable: The following materials are known from experience to be suitable for
protection against undissolved solids: rubber.
Check for tightness before use.
Replace damaged gloves.
Eye protection: Safety glasses
Body protection: Use protective suit with self-contained breathing apparatus in case of released material.
Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment: Avoid spillage of product into the environment.
If possible use this material only in closed systems and devices. In case of open plant systems (sampling devices, filling and
discharging, cleansing works etc.) use local exhaust and collecting trays. Follow emission limit values. Measures in case of unwanted emissions should be established.
Risk management measures: General protective and hygienic measures have to be observed.
Handling and use of this material/formulation only under controlled conditions in closed systems.
Employees who use this material/formulation must be trained and demonstrably instructed about possible risks for man and environment.
Measures for prevention of hazards in case of unwanted leakage shall be implemented.
