First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. 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
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: Wash with plenty of soap and 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. In the event of any
complaints or symptoms, avoid further exposure. Wash clothing before reuse.
Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for up to 15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses and open eyes wide apart. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Ingestion: 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. Get medical attention.

Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop
up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a
licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach the release from
upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas.
Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows. Contain and
collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite
or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local
regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated
absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.
