04. FIRST AID MEASURES

4.1

Description of first aid measures

Inhalation 

Remove victim immediately from source of exposure to fresh air. Keep the person warm and at rest. Call a doctor in case of persistence or worsening of adverse health effects. If unconscious, place the person in recovery position and call a physician immediately. Ensure good air circulation.

 Ingestion

DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING! Immediately rinse mouth and provide fresh air. Get medical attention. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep the person warm and at rest. If vomiting occurs, keep head down to prevent the passage of vomit into the lungs. Call a doctor in case of persistence or worsening of adverse health effects. If unconscious, place the person in recovery position and call a physician immediately. Ensure good air circulation.

Skin Contact 

Remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Eye Contact   

Immediately flush with plenty of water for up to 15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses and open eyes wide apart. Get medical attention immediately. Continue to rinse.

4.2

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

 

For details on the consequences in terms of health and symptoms, see Section 11.

4.3

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

 

No special treatment. Treat symptomatically. Contact a specialist for treatment of poisoning if large amounts are ingested or inhaled.




05. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

5.1 

Extinguishing Media

 

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide extinguishers or dry (Class ABC) fire extinguisher                                                         foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water spray.

5.2 

Special hazards arising from the product

 

Possible production of toxic fumes in case of a fire.

5.3 

Advice for firefighters

 

Avoid breathing vapours and fumes. Use a mask if necessary. Do not attack the fire with water: the water instead of stifling tends to fuel the fire. Essential oils have the ability to float on water. The fire spread is then accelerated. To extinguish an incipient fire based essential oil, use dry powder-specific ABC (or equivalent). If the fire is not important, it can be smothered by covering with earth, sand or blanket.

06. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1 

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

 

Avoid all flammable sources. Ventilate premises. Do not smoke.

6.2 

Environmental Precautions

 

Avoid contamination of drains, surface water and groundwater. Dispose of rags, sponges, etc. used to mop up by current local regulations.

6.3 

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up.

 

Large spills should be cleaned with inert absorbent material that will be scanned and then destroyed in accordance with existing regulations.
