Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:
Ensure good ventilation of the work station. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Materials for protective clothing:
Impervious clothing. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Hand protection:
Manipulate with gloves. Gloves have to be controlled before the use. Use a technique of withdrawal of gloves suited to avoid that the skin contacts
the product (i.e. without touching the outside surface of the glove). Throw gloves contaminated after the use according to the current laws and to the
good practices of laboratory. Wash and dry hands. The selected gloves have to satisfy the specifications of the EU Directive 89 / 686 / EEC and in the standard IN 374 which derives from it.

Eye protection:

Skin and body protection:
Wear suitable protective clothing

Respiratory protection:
For nuisance exposures use type P95 (US) or type P1 (EU EN 143) particle respirator. For higher level protection use type OV/AG/P99 (US) or type
ABEK-P2 (EU EN 143) respirator cartridges. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Environmental exposure controls:
Avoid release to the environment.
