FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
Instructions to the Fire Fighters: Spilled material may cause floors and contact surfaces to become slippery.
Fire Fighting Protective Equipment: Use self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Information in this section is for responding to spills, leaks or releases in order to prevent
or minimize the adverse effects on persons, property and the environment. There may be specific reporting requirements associated with spills, leaks or releases, which change from
region to region. Containment and Clean-Up Procedures: Minimize air borne spreading of dust. Wear respirator,
protective clothing and gloves. Avoid dry sweeping. Do not use compressed air to clean surfaces. Vacuuming or wet sweeping is preferred. Return all material possible to container
for proper disposal. Do not allow to enter sewers or watercourses. Any recovered product can be used for the usual purpose, depending on the extent and kind
of contamination. Where a package (drum or bag) is damaged and / or leaking, repair it, or place it into an over -pack drum immediately so as to avoid or minimize material loss and
contamination of surrounding environment. Replace damaged containers immediately to avoid loss of material and contamination of surrounding atmosphere.
Collect product for recovery or disposal. For release to land, or storm water runoff, contain discharge by constructing dykes or applying inert absorbent; for release to water,
utilize damming and/or water diversion to minimize the spread of contamination. Ventilate enclosed spaces. Notify applicable government authority if release is reportable or could adversely affect the environment. See Section 13, "Disposal Considerations".
