Inform authorities in case of contamination of water or sewage system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Collect mechanically.
Send for recovery or disposal in suitable containers.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Provide good room ventilation or local exhaust ventilation at the workplace.
Risks to the safety and health of workers may not only be created by work involving chemicals but,
inter alia by work equipment and the fitting-out of work-places. Those risks shall be identified and evaluated.
· Information about protection against explosion and fire: No special measures required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
· Storage
· Requirements to be met by storerooms and containers: Keep containers tightly sealed.
