Ventilation: General ventilation with a good source of make-up air recommended for all indoor situations. Local ventilation recommended at source of contamination generation. Ventilation should be adequate enough to maintain air concentrations below the designated exposure limit. Procedures to be followed in case of spills or leaks: Mop, wipe or soak-up small leaks immediately. Remove to out-of-doors. In case of large spills, evacuate area, contain liquid. Transfer to metal containers. Waste disposal: Incinerate or landfill in accordance with federal, provincial and local regulations. Containers when emptied may retain hazardous residues and should be commercially cleaned before reuse. Special handling procedures and equipment: Avoid prolonged or frequent contact when handling material. Avoid breathing mists or vapour. Handle only in adequately ventilated areas. Specific storage requirements: Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a cool and dry location away from oxidizing and reducing agents. Shipping information: Environmentally hazardous substance (Methylene Chloride); Class 9.2; PG II.
VII. FIRST AID
Contact with skin: Wash off in flowing water or shower. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Contact with eyes: Immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes and call a physician. Inhalation: Flush with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Keep patient at rest and call a physician immediately.
