Exposure controls / personal protection

- Engineering measures: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventila-tion, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure lim-its. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
- Personal protective equipment:
> Eye protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles).
> Hand protection: Wear suitable gloves.
> Respiratory protection: Use respiratory protection unless adequate local exhaust ventilation is provided or exposure assessment demon-strates that exposures are within recommended exposure guidelines.
> Protective measures: Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place.
