A written policy document,describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include areview of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical andfirst-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event ofchemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed atthe first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washedhands thoroughly. [CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59], [AS/NZS 1336 or national equivalent].HANDS/FEET■ The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality which vary frommanufacturer to manufacturer. Where the chemical is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material cannot be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.The exact break through time for substances has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves andhas to be observed when making a final choice.Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include:.• Wear chemical protective gloves, e.g. PVC.• Wear safety footwear or safety gumboots, e.g. Rubber.OTHER• Overalls.• P.V.C. apron.• Barrier cream.• Skin cleansing cream.ENGINEERING CONTROLS■ Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard. Well-designedengineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions toprovide this high level of protection.The basic types of engineering controls are:Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilationthat strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment.Section 9 - PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIESAPPEARANCEWhite liquid with a characteristic odour; does not mix with water.PHYSICAL PROPERTIESLiquid.Does not mix with water.Sinks in water.State Liquid Molecular Weight Not ApplicableMelting Range (°C) Not Available Viscosity Not AvailableBoiling Range (°C) 210 Solubility in water (g/L) ImmiscibleFlash Point (°C) Not Applicable pH (1% solution) Not AvailableDecomposition Temp (°C) Not Available pH (as supplied) Not AvailableAutoignition Temp (°C) Not Applicable Vapour Pressure (kPa) Not AvailableUpper Explosive Limit (%) Not Applicable Specific Gravity (water=1) 1.58Lower Explosive Limit (%) Not Applicable Relative Vapour Density Not Available(air=1)Volatile Component (%vol) Not Available Evaporation Rate Not AvailableSection 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITYCONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO INSTABILITY• Presence of incompatible materials.• Product is considered stable.• Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.For incompatible materials - refer to Section 7 - Handling and Storage.continued...


Fujifilm Sericol Quasar Flash White FW755Chemwatch Material Safety Data SheetIssue Date: 22-Dec-2009 CHEMWATCH 4667-89317SPVersion No:4.1.1.1Page 5 of 7Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATIONPOTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTSACUTE HEALTH EFFECTSSWALLOWED■ Accidental ingestion of the material may be damaging to the health of the individual.The toxicity of phthalates is not excessive due to slow oral absorption and metabolism. Absorption is affected by fat in thediet. Repeated doses can cause cumulative toxic effects, and symptoms include an enlarged liver which often reverses if exposureis maintained. Carbohydrate metabolism is disrupted, and cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood falls. There can alsobe withering of the testicles. Some phthalates can increase the effects of antibiotics, thiamine (vitamin B1) and sulfonamides.EYE■ Although the liquid is not thought to be an irritant (as classified by EC Directives), direct contact with the eye may producetransient discomfort characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness (as with windburn).SKIN■ The liquid may be miscible with fats or oils and may degrease the skin, producing a skin reaction described as non-allergiccontact dermatitis. The material is unlikely to produce an irritant dermatitis as described in EC Directives .Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects.Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.INHALED■ The material is not thought to produce either adverse health effects or irritation of the respiratory tract followinginhalation (as classified by EC Directives using animal models). Nevertheless, adverse systemic effects have been producedfollowing exposure of animals by at least one other route and good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimumand that suitable control measures be used in an occupational setting.CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS■ There has been some concern that this material can cause cancer or mutations but there is not enough data to make an assessment.Substance accumulation, in the human body, may occur and may cause some concern following repeated or long-term occupationalexposure.Based on experience with similar materials, there is a possibility that exposure to the material may reduce fertility in humansat levels which do not cause other toxic effects.Exposure to phthalates over years leads to pain, numbness and spasms in the hands and feet. Many people have developed multipledisorders in the nervous system and the balancing system. Levels of sex hormones are reduced in women, leading to missedovulations and miscarriages. They also reduce sperm counts and fertility in men. They mimic certain sex hormones and can damagethe foetus. Phthalates are found in paints, inks and glues.TOXICITY AND IRRITATION■ The material may produce peroxisome proliferation. Peroxisomes are single, membrane limited organelles in the cytoplasm thatare found in the cells of animals, plants, fungi, and protozoa. Proxisome proliferators include certain hypolipidaemic drugs,phthalate ester plasticisers, industrial solvents, herbicides, food flavours, leukotriene D4 antagonists and hormones. Animalstudies have shown that peroxisome proliferators clearly cause cancer, especially of the liver.CARCINOGENpolyvinyl chloride International Agency for Group 3 Not classifiable asResearch on Cancer (IARC) -to itsAgents Reviewed by the IARCcarcinogenicity toMonographshumansSKINbis(3, 5, 5- GESAMP/EHS Composite List - GESAMP Hazard D1: skin 0trimethylhexyl) Profiles irritation/corrosionphthalatebis(3, 5, 5- GESAMP/EHS Composite List - GESAMP Hazard D1: skin 1trimethylhexyl) Profiles irritation/corrosionphthalatecontinued...
