4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Description of first aid measures General advice Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.

In case of skin contact Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.

In case of eye contact Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.

If swallowed Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms of chronic bismuth toxicity in humans consists of decreased appetite, weakness, rheumatic pain, diarrhea, fever, metal line on the gums, foul breathe, gingivitis, and dermatitis. Jaundice and conjunctival hemorrhage are rare, but have been reported. Bismuth nephropathy with proteinuria may occur. The kidney is the site of highest concentration with the liver being considerably lower. Bismuth does pass into the amniotic fluid and into the fetus., Material is extremely destructive to tissue of the mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract, eyes, and skin., Cough, Shortness of breath, Headache

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed no data available

 

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

Extinguishing media

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture Hydrogen bromide gas, Bismuth oxides

Advice for firefighters Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Further information no data available

 

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust.

Environmental precautions Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Sweep up and shovel. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Reference to other sections For disposal see section 13.

 

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters

Exposure controls Appropriate engineering controls Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Personal protective equipment Eye/face protection Face shield and safety glasses Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under

appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Skin protection Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique

(without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of

contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices.

Wash and dry hands. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

Body Protection Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected

according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Respiratory protection Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle

respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering

controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use

respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as

NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
