Control measures:
Engineering measures: Facilities and equipment easily cleanable. Avoid splashes. Maintain air concentrations below occupational exposure standards. Assessment of surface contamination and of dermal risk.

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection: In the case of vapour formation use a respirator with an approved filter.

Hand protection: The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time. Gloves must be inspected prior to use.

Skin and body protection: Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

Eye protection: Goggles.

Hygiene measures: Emergency equipment immediately accessible, with instructions for use. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Use clean, well-maintained personal protection equipment. Store personal protection equipment in a clean location away from the work area. Shower or bathe at the end of working.
