Protection: Wear protective gloves, clothing, and goggles.

Respirators: Wear positive self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Small Spills and Leaks:

  • Do not touch damaged packages or spilled material.
  • If the material spilled is in liquid form, cover it with sand, earth, or other noncombustible absorbent material.
  • If the material spilled is in powder form, cover it with a plastic sheet or tarp to minimize spreading.
  • Contact the RSO.

Stability: No data available.

Inhalation:

  • Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing.
  • Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
  • See ingestion.

Skin and Eyes:

  • Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
  • See ingestion.

Ingestion:

  • Medical problems take over radiological concerns.
  • Use first aid treatment according to the nature of the injury.
  • Do not delay care and transport of a seriously injured person.
