4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated skin with soapy water. If
skin irritation develops, get medical attention. Wash clothing thoroughly before re-use.
Skin contact with organophosphates may cause localised sweating and involuntary muscle contractions.
Eye contact: Rinse eye(s) with clean running water for 15 mins. Get medical attention.
Eye contact will cause pain, bleeding, tears, pupil constriction, and blurred vision.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth. Give water to drink if patient is conscious. DO NOT induce
vomiting. If vomiting occurs ensure patient can breathe, then give water to drink.
If swallowed, give one atropine tablet every 5 minutes until dryness of the mouth occurs - if poisoned by
skin absorption or through lungs, remove any contaminated clothing, wash skin thoroughly and give
atropine tablets as above. Get to a doctor or hospital quickly.
Inhalation: If vapours or mists have been inhaled, and irritation or unusual symptoms have
developed, remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation or symptoms persist more than
about 30 minutes, seek medical advice.
Advice to doctor: This product contains a cholinesterase inhibitor. Atropine treatment may be
required or treat with up to 10mg of IV diazepam. Curare therapy is contraindicated. Treat pulmonary
pneumonitis secondary to pulmonary oedema.
Do not give adrenergic amines, aminophylline, succinylcholine, phenothiazines or reserpine alkaloids or oils.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Water stream, water fog.
Special hazards in fire: Product is flammable. Combustion may release carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides,
and/or phosphorous compounds.
Required special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self contained breathing apparatus if in
enclosed space.
Hazchem code: 3W

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Emergency procedures: Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eyes being affected.
Breathing protection is advised if contact will be prolonged.
EVACUATE UNPROTECTED AND UNNECESSARY PERSONNEL FROM AREA.
If material is leaking from a container, stop the leak only if this can be done safely.
Prevent spillage entering drains or watercourse.
Methods for containment & cleanup: Vermiculite, Sand, Soil is a suitable absorbent, especially soils high
in clay.
Soil can be used to form bunds to contain spillage.
Contaminated soil should be collected for disposal at a suitable landfill.
Contaminated area and tools should be washed down with hypochlorite bleach.
Personal protective equipment and clothing should be washed with soapy water.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Keep away from food, drink, and animal feedstuff.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Wear suitable Personal protective equipment when handling and spraying.
Storage: Store in the original container in a dry, cool, ventilated, LOCKED area.
DO NOT store in prolonged sunlight.
DO NOT store with food, seed, or animal feedstuff.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS
National exposure standards: A time weighted average (TWA) has been established for Cyclohexanone,
present in significant quantities in this product. This value is 100mg/m3. The corresponding STEL level
is "not set". The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that should not be exceeded
for more than 15 minutes and should not be repeated for more than 4 times per day.
There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The exposure value at
the TWA is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal
8-hour working day for a 5-day working week.
Biological limit values: The ADI for Dimethoate is set at 0.02mg/kg/day. The corresponding NOEL is
set at 0.2 (H) mg/kg/day. Values taken from Australian ADI List, May 1995
Engineering measures: Use assisted ventilation in enclosed spaces if needed, especially storage areas.
Personal protection equipment:
Eye/face protection: Goggles or glasses to AS 1366, AS/NZS1337
Hand/skin protection: Overalls, PVC gloves and apron, face shield
Respiratory protection: Should not be necessary under normal conditions. If spray mist may be
encountered, a particulate filter to AS/NZS 1715 should be worn.
