Section 7 - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to be taken in case material is released or spilled:

  1. Ventilate area of spill.
  2. Clean up using methods which avoid dust generation such as vacuum (with appropriate filter to prevent airborne dust levels wich expose the PEL or TLV)
  3. If airborne dust is generated, us an appropriate NIOSH-approved respirator.

Section 8 - SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

  • Respirator Protection:Use an appropriate NIOSH-approved respirator if airborne dust concentration exceeds the approrpriate PEL ot TLV.  All appropriate requirements set forth in CFR 1910.134 shoudl be met.
  • Ventilation: Use local exhause ventilation, which is adequate to limit personal exposure to airborne dust to levels which do not exceed the PEL or TLV.
  • Skin Protection: Protective gloves or barrier cream are recommended when contact with dust or mist is likely.  Prior to applying the barrier cream or use of protective gloves, wash thoroughly.  Consult with your employer before using gloves as some may present safety hazards.
  • Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side shields or goggles are recommended.
  • Other Protective Equipment: N/A

Section 9 - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions to be Taken in Handling and Storage: Maintain good housekeeping procedures to prevent dust accumulation during grinding.  Avoid dust inhilation and direct contact with the skin.

Other Precautions:

  • Clean up using methods which avoid dust generation such as vacuum (with appropriate filter to prevent airborne dust levels, which exceed PEL or TLV), wet dust mop, or wet clean up.  If airborne dust is generated, use an appropriate NIOSH-approved respirator.
  • Wash hands thoroughly after handling, before eating or smoking.  Wash exposed skin at the end of the work shift. 
  • Do not shake clothing, rags, or other items to remove dust.  Dust should be removed by washing or vaccuuming.
