First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Eye contact : Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower
eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention.
Inhalation : Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If
it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate
mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular
or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained
personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Get medical attention. If necessary, call a poison center or physician.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Skin contact : Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or
wear gloves. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention.
Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Ingestion : Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Wash out
mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at
rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the
exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the
exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should
be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Never give anything by mouth to
an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Protection of first-aiders : No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. If it
is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate
mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person
providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Wash contaminated clothing
thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear gloves.
