Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:       Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.  If user operations generate dust, fumes or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

Eye/face protection:       Safety glasses when eye contact is possible.

Hand protection:       For prolonged or repeated contact use protective gloves.

Body protection:       Skin covering working clothes; wear dust-proof overalls if large quantities of dust are generated.

Respiratory protection:       Respiratory protection is not required. Where protection from nuisance levels of dusts are desired, use type P1 (EN 143) dust masks. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as CEN (EU).

Thermal hazards:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent heat.
