Section 4: First Aid Measures

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. (Phone Australia 131 126, New Zealand 0800 764 766)

First AidMeasure
Inhalation:Effects may be delayed. Remove victim from exposure – avoid becoming a casualty. Remove contaminated clothing and loosen remaining clothing. Allow patient to assume most comfortable position and keep warm. Keep at rest until fully recovered. If breathing laboured and patient cyanotic (blue), ensure airways are clear and have a qualified person give oxygen through a facemask. If breathing has stopped apply artificial respiration at once. In the event of cardiac arrest, apply external cardiac massage. Seek immediate medical advice.
Skin Contact:If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and flush skin and hair with running water. If swelling, redness, blistering or irritation occurs seek medical assistance. For gross contamination immediately drench with water and remove clothing. Continue to flush skin and hair with plenty of water (and soap if material is insoluble). For skin burns, cover with a clean, dry dressing until medical help is available. If blistering occurs, do NOT break blisters. If swelling, redness, blistering, or irritation occurs seek medical assistance.
Eye Contact:If in eyes, hold eyelids apart and flush the eyes continuously with running water. Continue flushing until advised to stop by the Poisons Information Centre or a Doctor; or for at least 15 minutes and transport to Doctor or Hospital.
Ingestion:Rinse mouth with water. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to drink. Never give anything by the mouth to an unconscious patient. If vomiting occurs give further water. Seek medical advice.
Notes to Physician:Treat symptomatically. Effects may be delayed. Extreme caution must be taken to prevent aspiration.
Aggravated Medical Conditions caused by exposure:Exposure may aggravate existing conditions including skin sensitisation and dermatitis.

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

First AidMeasure
Inhalation: •3YE
Suitable Extinguishing Media:If material is involved in a fire use alcohol resistant foam or dry agent (carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder).
Specific Hazards:Highly flammable liquid and vapour. May form flammable vapour mixtures with air. Flameproof equipment necessary in area where this chemical is being used. Nearby equipment must be earthed. Electrical requirements for work area should be assessed according to AS3000. Vapour may travel a considerable distance to source of ignition and flash back. Avoid all ignition sources. All potential sources of ignition (open flames, pilot lights, furnaces, spark producing switches and electrical equipment etc) must be eliminated both in and near the work area. Do NOT smoke.
Fire Fighting Further Advice:Heating can cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. If safe to do so, remove containers from path of fire. Keep containers cool with water spray. On burning or decomposing may emit toxic fumes. Fire fighters to wear self-contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing if risk of exposure to vapour or products of combustion or decomposition.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

First AidMeasure
Small Spills:Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination. Avoid inhalation of vapours or dust. Wipe up with absorbent (clean rag or paper towels). Collect and seal in properly labelled containers or drums for disposal.
Large Spills:If safe to do so, shut off all possible sources of ignition. Clear area of all unprotected personnel. Slippery when spilt. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination and the inhalation of vapours. Work up wind or increase ventilation. Contain – prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand or other inert material). Use a spark-free shovel. Collect and seal in properly labelled containers or drums for disposal. If contamination of crops, sewers or waterways has occurred advise local emergency services
Dangerous Goods – Initial Emergency Response Guide No: 14

Section 7: Handling And Storage​

First AidMeasure
Handling:Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour, mist or aerosols.
Storage:Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from foodstuffs. Store away from incompatible materials described in Section 10. Store away from sources of heat and/or ignition.
Store locked up. Keep container standing upright. Keep containers closed when not in use – check regularly for leaks.
This material is classified as a Class 3 Flammable Liquid as per the criteria of the “Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail” and/or the “New Zealand NZS5433: Transport of Dangerous Goods on Land” and must be stored in accordance with the relevant regulations.

Section 8: Exposure Controls & Personal Protection

National Occupational Exposure Limits:
TWASTELNotices
ppmmg/m3ppmmg/m3
Chlorobenzene1046
Ethyl acetate2007204001440
As published by Safe Work Australia.

TWA – The time-weighted average airborne concentration over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week over an entire working life.

STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) – the average airborne concentration over a 15 minute period which should not be exceeded at any time during a normal eight-hour workday.

These Exposure Standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards. All atmospheric contamination should be kept too as low a level as is workable. These exposure standards should not be used as fine dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals. They are not a measure of relative toxicity.

If the directions for use on the product label are followed, exposure of individuals using the product should not exceed the above standard. The standard was created for workers who are routinely, potentially exposed during product manufacture.
First AidMeasure
Biological Limit Values:As per the “National Model Regulations for the Control of Workplace Hazardous Substances (Safe Work Australia)” the ingredients in this material do not have a Biological Limit Allocated.
Engineering Measures:Ensure ventilation is adequate to maintain air concentrations below Exposure Standards. Use only in well ventilated areas. Use with local exhaust ventilation or while wearing appropriate respirator.
Personal Protection Equipment:SAFETY SHOES, OVERALLS, GLOVES, APRON, SAFETY GLASSES, RESPIRATOR.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) must be suitable for the nature of the work and any hazard associated with the work as identified by the risk assessment conducted.

Wear safety shoes, overalls, gloves, apron, safety glasses, respirator. Use with adequate ventilation. If inhalation risk exists wear organic vapour/particulate respirator meeting the requirements of AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716. Available information suggests that gloves made from an impervious material should be suitable for intermittent contact. However, due to variations in glove construction and local conditions, the user should make a final assessment. Refer to AS/NZS 2161. Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storing or re-using.
Hygiene Measures:Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands prior to eating, drinking or smoking. Avoid contact with clothing. Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact. Avoid inhalation of vapour, mist or aerosols. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
