Handling

Page: 3/6

To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Carcinogenic, teratogenic or mutagenic materials should be stored in a separate locked safety storage cabinet or room.
