Chronic Health Effects: Perchlorates reversibly inhibit thyroid iodine uptake. Kidney function
may be affected.
SECTION 4: First Aid Measures
Eye Exposure: Immediately flush the eyes with copious amounts of water for at least
10-15 minutes. A victim may need assistance in keeping their eye lids open.
Get immediate medical attention.
Skin Exposure: Wash the affected area with water. Remove contaminated clothes if
