First Aid Measures
Eyes:Flush thoroughly with water, including under the eyelids. Get medical attention if irritation continues.
Skin:Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
Ingestion:Do not induce vomiting. If conscious and large amount is ingested give several glasses of water to dilute stomach contents. Call a physician if a large amount of Dicalcium Phosphate is swallowed.
nhalation:Remove to fresh air. Keep warm. Get medical attention if discomfort continues.
Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: None established.
Ventilation System: In general, dilution ventilation is a satisfactory health hazard control for this substance. However, if conditions of use create discomfort to the worker, a local exhaust system should be considered.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
-1)Extinguishing Media Not combustible. Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool.
In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
Accidental Release Measures
-1)Personal Precautions Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Personal Protection Section.
-2)Environmental Precautions Do not allow this material to enter storm or sanitary sewers, lakes, rivers, streams or public waterways. Isolate hazard area and restrict access. If material spills at the dry area, sweep up and containerize for reclamation or disposal. Vacuuming or wet sweeping may be used to avoid dust dispersal. Flush and clean area with water to remove trace residue.
