Additional remarks related with worker exposure:
The substance is a solution of inorganic salts in water which are naturally ocurring. The inorganic salts have a low toxicity and under normal handling and use conditions these inorganic salts are not systemically available. For this reason the human health hazards of the substance are well known. Furthermore inhalation exposure is unlikely (low vapour pressure). Therefore the risks for workers should be considered low if standard personal protective equipment (skin and eye protection) is used.


Additional remarks related with environmental exposure:
The substance is a solution of inorganic salts in water which are naturally ocurring. The inorganic salts have a low ecotoxicity (see section 6.1.3 and 6.1.5). For this reason the environmental hazards of the substance are well known. Therefore the risks for the environment should be considered low if standard environmental exposure controls are used.
