2.     HEALTH HAZARD
2.1    EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
       Potential symptoms of overexposure are irritation of the upper respiratory
       tract, eyes and skin. Burns to skin and eyes. Acute dermatitis.


2.2    ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS/TOXICOLOGICAL DATA
       SWALLOWED
       The material is moderately corrosive, harmful if swallowed and is capable
       of causing burns to mouth, throat and related organs with extreme
       discomfort and pain. Considered an unlikely route of entry in normal
       industrial usage. Small amounts or low dose rates are regarded as
       practically non-harmful.

       EYE
       The material is corrosive to the eyes and is capable of causing temporary
       impaired vision. The material may produce moderate eye irritation leading
       to inflammation. Repeated or prolonged exposure to irritants may cause
       conjunctivitis.

       SKIN
       The material is moderately discomforting to skin and prolonged or repeated
       exposure may lead to dermatitis (non-allergic) often characterised by
       local redness of the surrounding skin.




D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\308f048e-1de4-4940-bb35-f1f834825f73.doc               Page 3 of 9
       INHALATION
       Not normally a hazard in typical industrial usage due to the non-volatile
       nature of the product, but may be caused by high pressure spraying of the
       product or mist arising from water wash operations. This material may
       produce respiratory tract irritation and associated inflammation of local
       organs, most notably the throat, oesophagus and lungs.

       CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
       Primary route of exposure is normally via skin / eye contact. Inhalation
       of vapour or mist may cause choking, coughing, weakness, headache or
       dizziness. Repeated inhalation may cause pulmonary oedema and cyanosis.
       Ingestion of a large quantity may lead to severe abdominal pains, thirst,
       acidemia, difficult breathing, convulsions, collapse, shock and death. The
       product does not cause phosphorous poisoning.


2.3    FIRST AID
       SWALLOWED
       If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or the Poisons Information Center.
       DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give a glass of water.

       EYE
       If this product comes into contact with eyes immediately wash / flush the
       eyes for at least 15 minutes with fresh running water. Ensure irrigation
       under eyelids by occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Transport to
       doctor or hospital without delay.

       SKIN
       If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash contaminated
       area with soap and water.

       INHALED
       If fumes or combustion products are inhaled, remove patient to fresh air.
       If breathing is shallow or has stopped ensure clear airway and apply
       resuscitation. Transport to doctor or hospital without delay.


       ADVICE TO DOCTOR
       Treat symptoms with reference to specific health effects identified above.

       For acute or short term repeated exposures to strong acids:
       1.Airway problems may arise from laryngeal edema and inhalation exposure.
         Treat with 100% oxygen initially.
       2 Intravenous lines should be established immediately in all cases where
         there is evidence of circulatory compromise.
       4.Strong acids produce a coagulation necrosis characterised by formation
         of a coagulum (eschar) as a result of the desiccating action of the
         acid on proteins in specific tissues.




D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\308f048e-1de4-4940-bb35-f1f834825f73.doc   Page 4 of 9
        INGESTION:
        1.Immediate dilution (milk or water) within 30 minutes post ingestion is
          recommended.
        2.Do not attempt to neutralise the acid since exothermic reaction may
          extend the corrosive injury.
        3.Be careful to avoid further vomit since re-exposure of the mucosa to the
          acid is harmful. Limit fluids to one or two glasses in an adult.
        4.Charcoal has no place in acid management.
        5.Some authors suggest the use of lavage within 1 hour of ingestion.

        SKIN:
        1.Skin lesions require copious saline irrigation. Treat chemical burns as
          thermal burns with non-adherent gauze and wrapping.
        2.Deep second-degree burns may benefit from topical silver sulfadiazine.

        EYE:
        1.Eye injuries require retraction of the eyelids to ensure thorough
          irrigation of the conjunctival cul-de-sacs. Irrigation should last at
          least 20-30 minutes. Do not use neutralising agents or any other
          additives. Several litres of saline are required.
        2. Cycloplegic drops (1% cyclopentolate for short-term use or 5%
           homatropine for longer term use) antibiotic drops OR artificial tears
           may be indicated dependent or the severity of the injury.
        3.Steroid eye drops should only be administered with the approval of a
          consulting ophthalmologist).


3.      PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
3.1     EXPOSURE STANDARDS
             None assigned.        Refer to individual constituents.

PHOSPHORIC ACID
    TLV TWA: 1 mg/m3; STEL: 3 mg/m3
    ES TWA: 1 mg/m3; STEL: 3 mg/m3
    OES STEL: 2 mg/m3
    IDLH Value: 10000 mg/m3

        The saturated vapour concentration of phosphoric acid exceeds the TLV.
        Exposure at or below this limit is thought to prevent throat irritation
        amongst unacclimatised workers.

2-BUTOXYETHANOL

      TLV TWA : 25 ppm      / 121 mg/m3

        Skin absorption may be a significant exposure source. The exposure
        standard is invalidated if such contact should occur.

SODIUM CHROMATE


      chromium (VI) compounds, water soluble, as Cr (A.Wt: 51.99)



D:\Docstoc\Working\pdf\308f048e-1de4-4940-bb35-f1f834825f73.doc        Page 5 of 9
      ES TWA: 0.05 mg/m3 SENSITISER
      TLV TWA: 0.05 mg/m3, A1
      WARNING: This substance has been classified by the ACGIH as A1
      CONFIRMED HUMAN CARCINOGEN
      IDLH Level: 30 mg/m3

3.2    ENGINEERING CONTROLS
       General    exhaust is adequate under normal operating conditions.
       If risk    of overexposure exists, wear SAA approved respirator.
       Correct    fit is essential to obtain adequate protection.
       Provide    adequate ventilation in warehouse or closed storage areas.

3.3    PERSONAL PROTECTION
       EYE
       Chemical goggles. Full face shield. Contact lenses pose a special hazard;
       soft lenses may absorb irritants and
       all lenses concentrate them.

       SKIN
       Rubber gloves PVC gloves.
       Safety footwear.
       Rubber boots

       OTHER
       Overalls Plastic apron.
       Barrier cream.
       Eyewash unit.
       Ensure there is ready access to a safety shower.

       RESPIRATOR
       Respiratory protection may be required when ANY "Worst Case" vapour-phase
       concentration is exceeded .

       The local concentration of material, quantity and conditions of use
       determine the type of personal protective equipment required.

       NOTE: Limits shown for guidance only.               Follow applicable regulations.
