  4.First-aid measures

  4.1 Description of necessary first-aid measures

  General advice

  Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

  If inhaled

  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.

  In case of skin contact

  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention .

  In case of eye contact

  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

  If swallowed

  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

  4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

  Strongly irritating to eyes and mucous membranes. Poisonous; may be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through skin. (EPA, 1998)

  4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

  no data available

  5.Fire-fighting measures

  5.1 Extinguishing media

  Suitable extinguishing media

  If material on fire or involved in fire: Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Solid streams of

  water may be ineffective. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Use "alcohol" foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical. Keep run-off water

  out of sewers and water sources.

  5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

  When heated to decomposition, it emits toxic fumes of chlorine containing compounds. Propyl chloroformate is a flammable/combustible material;

  it may be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Container may explode in heat or fire. Vapor

  explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Runoff from fire control or

  dilution water may cause pollution. Gradually decomposed by water and alcohol. Unstable, decomposes spontaneously to form hydrochloric acid

  and other products. Avoid moist air. (EPA, 1998)

  5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters

  Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

  6.Accidental release measures

  6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

  Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel

  to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.

  6.2 Environmental precautions

  Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do NOT let

  this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable dry plastic containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in

  dry sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

  6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

  Pick up and arrange disposal. Sweep up and shovel. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

  7.Handling and storage

  7.1 Precautions for safe handling

  Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.Provide

  appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. For precautions see section 2.2.

  7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

  Fireproof. Provision to contain effluent from fire extinguishing. Separated from acids, alcohols, amines, bases, oxidants and food and feedstuffs.

  Dry. Well closed. Store in an area without drain or sewer access.OWING TO THE FACT THAT THESE COMPOUNDS DECOMP
