Exposure controls / personal protection

· 8.1 Control parameters
· Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:
The product does not contain any relevant quantities of materials with critical values that have to be
monitored at the workplace.
· DNELs
12045-78-2 potassium tetraborate
Oral DNEL 1.2 mg/kg bw/day (user long term systemic effect)
1.2 mg/kg bw/day (user short term systemic effect)
Dermal DNEL 242.4 mg/kg bw/day (user long term systemic effect)
480.6 mg/kg bw/day (worker long term systemic effect) (chronic systemic effects)
Inhalative DNEL 5.16 mg/m3 (user long term systemic effect)
1,025 mg/m3 (worker long term systemic effect)
· PNECs
12045-78-2 potassium tetraborate
PNEC 2.02 mg/l (Fresh water) (of boron)
13.7 mg/l (intermittent releases) (of boron)
10 mg/l (STP microorganismes station d'eaux usées) (of boron)
2.02 mg/l (Sea water) (of boron)
PNEC 5.4 mg/kg (soil) (of boron, kg dry soil)
Additional information: The lists that were valid during the creation were used as basis.
· 8.2 Exposure controls
· Personal protective equipment
· General protective and hygienic measures
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
· Breathing equipment:
Provide an adequate ventilation, through the installation of local exhaust ventilation-unit and a general
exhaust system. Applying recommended technical measures, it is not necessary to wear personal protective
equipment.
· Protection of hands:
Protective gloves.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Due to a lack of tests, no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/
the chemical mixture.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the
degradation
· Glove material
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality
and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several substances, the
resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the
application.
· Penetration time of glove material
The exact penetration time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be
observed.
· Eye protection: Not required.
· Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment
It is important to test emissions from ventilation systems or manufacturing equipment to ensure they comply
with the requirements of legislation on protection of the environment. In some cases it will be necessary to
equip the material for manufacturing a gas scrubber or filter or change technically to reduce emissions to
acceptable levels.
· Risk management measures
Employer is obligated to ensure, that applied personal protective measures and cloths and shoes have
protective and usable properties, and ensure their proper washing, preserving, fixing and disinfection.
