HEALTH HAZARDS
Health Hazard Moderate toxicity - irritant. Use safe work practices to avoid eye - skin contact and accidental hand to mouth transfer.
Toxic by ingestion, although fatal poisonings in adults are rare.
Summary

Eye Irritant. Contact may result in lacrimation, irritation, pain, redness and conjunctivitis. Prolonged contact - corneal
burns and possible permanent damage.

Inhalation Low irritant. Over exposure at high levels may result in mucous membrane irritation of the nose and throat with
coughing.

Skin Irritant. Prolonged contact may result in irritation, itching and possible skin rash.

Ingestion Moderate toxicity. Ingestion of large quantities may cause vomiting, acidosis, bloody diarrhoea and shock. In some
cases, necrosis and haemorrhage of the gastrointestinal tract, liver damage and death may occur. Scarring of the
gastrointestinal tract may occur in non-fatal cases.


PRECAUTIONS
Flammability Non flammable. No fire or explosion hazard exists.

Reactivity Incompatible with oxidising agents (eg. hypochlorites, peroxides) and acids (eg. sulfuric acid). Corrosive to some
metals.May cause staining.

Ventilation Do not inhale dusts. Use in well ventilated areas - open doors and windows. In poorly ventilated areas, mechanical
extraction ventilation at source is recommended. Maintain dust levels below the recommended exposure standard.


PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
PPE Wear dust-proof goggles and PVC or rubber gloves. When using large quantities or where heavy contamination is
likely, wear coveralls. Where an inhalation risk exists, wear a Class P1 (Particulate) Respirator.




EMERGENCY
Spillage If spilt, collect and reuse where possible. Wear dust-proof goggles and PVC/rubber gloves. Where heavy
contamination is possible or where an inhalation risk exists, wear a Class P1 (Particulate) respirator and coveralls.
Absorb with moist sand or similar and place in sealable containers for disposal.

Environment Soluble iron salts may be toxic to animals (at ~500 ppm), fish (at ~100 ppm) and aquatic microorganisms. Levels in
drinking water should be below 3 ppm.

EMERGENCY cont.
Fire and Non flammable. If product is present in a fire, toxic gases may be evolved. Evacuate area and contact emergency
services. Remain upwind and notify those downwind of hazard. Wear full protective equipment including Self
Explosion
Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) when combating fire. Use waterfog to cool intact containers and nearby
storage areas.

Extinguishing Non flammable.


FIRST AID
Eye Flush gently with running water. Seek medical attention if irritation develops.

Inhalation If over exposure occurs, leave exposure area immediately. Seek medical attention if symptoms develop.

Skin Gently flush affected areas with water.

Ingestion For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 (Australia Wide) or a doctor. If swallowed, do not
induce vomiting.

First Aid Eye wash facilities and safety shower are recommended.
Facilities


SAFE HANDLING
Storage Store in cool, dry, well ventilated area, removed from oxidising agents (eg. hypochlorites), acids, metals and
foodstuffs. Ensure containers are adequately labelled, protected from physical damage and sealed when not in use.
Large storage areas should have appropriate ventilation systems.

Waste Disposal For small amounts, cover with moist sand or similar, collect and dispose of to an approved landfill site. Avoid
generating dust. Contact the manufacturer for additional information.

Transport Not regulated for transport purposes.

HEALTH HAZARDS - HEALTH HAZARD SUMMARY
Ingestion of large amounts may result in haematemesis (blood in vomit) and severe corrosion of the GI tract. Ferrous
sulfate may be intensely corrosive to the gastrointestinal mucosa/tract causing pain, vomiting, shock, coma and
death. In the body the ferrous (Fe2+) ion is believed to be oxidised to ferric (Fe3+) ion. Metabolic acidosis may occur
(ie. body fluids more acidic than usual). Ferrous sulfate has caused poisoning when doses above those prescribed
for therapeutic treatment have been taken. 20-60 mg/kg is mildly to moderately toxic, whereas 200-250 mg/kg is life
threatening.

HEALTH HAZARDS - EYE
Irritant. Contact may result in pain, redness, conjunctivitis corneal burns and possible permanent damage.

HEALTH HAZARDS - INHALATION
Over exposure may result in mucous membrane irritation of the respiratory tract.
ES-TWA : 1 mg/m3 (soluble iron salts)

HEALTH HAZARDS - SKIN
Irritant. May result in redness, rash and possible burns on prolonged exposure.

HEALTH HAZARDS - INGESTION
Moderately toxic. May cause nausea, vomiting and ulceration of the gastro-intestinal tract. Experimental mutagenic
data.
LDLo (Ingestion) : 1389 mg/kg (rat)
LD50 (Ingestion) : 1520 mg/kg (mouse)

EMERGENCY - ENVIRONMENT
Iron (II) sulfate is toxic to animals at 500 ppm (chronic exposure) and to some livestock above 0.3 ppm. Toxic to fish;
100 ppm for 4 hours was fatal to bass. Toxic to microorganisms (<152 ppm immobilised Daphnia Magna).

HEALTH HAZARDS - TOXICITY DATA
LD50 (Intravenous) : 51 mg/kg (mouse)
LD50 (Intraperitoneal) : 245 mg/kg (mouse)
LDLo (Subcutaneous) : 279 mg/kg (rabbit)
LDLo (Intravenous) : 99 mg/kg (rabbit)

RESPIRATORS: In general the use of respirators should be limited and engineering controls employed to avoid
exposure. If respiratory equipment must be worn ensure correct respirator selection and training is undertaken.
Remember that some respirators may be extremely uncomfortable when used for long periods. The use of air

powered or air supplied respirators should be considered where prolonged or repeated use is necessary.

Caution: May cause staining.


COLOUR RATING SYSTEM: Chem Alert reports are assigned a colour rating of Green, Amber or Red for the
purpose of providing users with a quick and easy means of determining the hazardous nature of a product. Safe
handling recommendations are provided in all Chem Alert reports so as to clearly identify how users can control the
hazards and thereby reduce the risk (or likelihood) of adverse effects. As a general guideline a Green colour rating
indicates a low hazard, an Amber colour rating indicates a moderate hazard and a Red colour rating indicates a high
hazard.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT GUIDELINES:
The recommendation for protective equipment contained within this Chem Alert report is provided as a guide only.
Factors such as method of application, working environment, quantity used, product concentration and the
availability of engineering controls should be considered before final selection of personal protective equipment is
made.

HEALTH EFFECTS FROM EXPOSURE:
It should be noted that the effects from exposure to this product will depend on several factors including: frequency
and duration of use; quantity used; effectiveness of control measures; protective equipment used and method of
application. Given that it is impractical to prepare a Chem Alert report which would encompass all possible
scenarios, it is anticipated that users will assess the risks and apply control methods where appropriate.

ABBREVIATIONS:
mg/m3 - Milligrams per cubic metre
ppm - Parts Per Million
TWA/ES - Time Weighted Average or Exposure Standard.
CNS - Central Nervous System
NOS - Not Otherwise Specified
pH - relates to hydrogen ion concentration - this value will relate to a scale of 0 - 14, where 0 is highly acidic and 14
is highly alkaline.
CAS# - Chemical Abstract Service number - used to uniquely identify chemical compounds.
M - moles per litre, a unit of concentration.
IARC - International Agency for Research on Cancer.



STATUS OF CHEM ALERT REPORTS
________________________________
Chem Alert reports are compiled as an independent source of information by RMT's scientific department. The
information is based on the latest chemical and toxicological research, and in compliance with relevant standards,
guidance notes and legislation (where applicable). The Chem Alert report is not intended as a replacement to the
manufacturer's original MSDS that is provided to Chem Alert subscribers for convenience. In many instances, Chem
Alert reports are compiled on behalf of manufacturers, in which case they serve as the "Manufacturer's MSDS" and
are clearly identified as such on the relevant reports.
