Engineering Controls: General exhaust is acceptable. Local exhaust ventilation preferred. Make up air should be supplied to balance air that is removed by local or general exhaust
ventilation. Ventilate low lying areas such as sumps or pits where dense dust may collect.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side shields are recommended to prevent eye contact. Use chemical safety goggles when there is potential for eye contact. Contact lenses should
not be worn when working with this material.
Skin Protection: Gloves and protective clothing made from cotton, canvas, rubber or plastic should be impervious under conditions of use. Prior to use, user should confirm impermeability. Discard contaminated gloves.
Respiratory Protection: No specific guidelines available. A NIOSH/MSHA approved dust mask for concentrations of nuisance dust up to 100 mg/M3 particulate. An air-supplied
respirator if concentrations are higher or unknown.
If while wearing a respiratory protection, you can smell, taste or otherwise detect anything unusual, or in the case of a full facepiece respirator you experience eye irritation, leave
the area immediately. Check to make sure the respirator to face seal is still good. If it
is, replace the filter, cartridge or canister. If the seal is no longer good, you may need a new respirator. (4)
