Exposure Controls

Appropriate engineering controls:

  • Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
  • Wash hands before breaks, and at the end of workday.

Personal protective equipment

Eye and Face Protection:

  • Face shield and safety glasses.
  • Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).
