Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES SWALLOWED ■ - If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. - If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration. - Observe the patient carefully. - Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious. - Avoid giving milk or oils. - Avoid giving alcohol. - If spontaneous vomiting appears imminent or occurs, hold patient's head down, lower than their hips to help avoid possible aspiration of vomitus. EYE ■ If this product comes in contact with the eyes: - Wash out immediately with fresh running water. - Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. - Seek medical attention without delay; if pain persists or recurs seek medical attention. - Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel. SKIN ■ If skin contact occurs: - Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear. - Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available). - Seek medical attention in event of irritation. INHALED ■ - If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. - Other measures are usually unnecessary. NOTES TO PHYSICIAN ■ For acute or short term repeated exposures to petroleum distillates or related hydrocarbons: - Primary threat to life, from pure petroleum distillate ingestion and/or inhalation, is respiratory failure. - Patients should be quickly evaluated for signs of respiratory distress (e.g. cyanosis, tachypnoea, intercostal retraction, obtundation) and given oxygen. Patients with inadequate tidal volumes or poor arterial blood gases (pO2 50 mm Hg) should be intubated. - Arrhythmias complicate some hydrocarbon ingestion and/or inhalation and electrocardiographic evidence of myocardial injury has been reported; intravenous lines and cardiac monitors should be established in obviously symptomatic patients. The lungs excrete inhaled solvents, so that hyperventilation improves clearance. - A chest x-ray should be taken immediately after stabilisation of breathing and circulation to document aspiration and detect the presence of pneumothorax. Any material aspirated during vomiting may produce lung injury. Therefore emesis should not be induced mechanically or pharmacologically. Medical literature on human exposure to thiocarbamate derivatives is scarce. - Animal studies suggest that contact dermatitis and thyroid hyperplasia may occur following exposure. - These compounds do not have the cholinergic properties of structurally related carbamate insecticides. - The usual measures for gut and skin contamination are recommended for large doses. - Some thiocarbamates are structurally similar to disulfiram and may cause the characteristically unpleasant alcohol type reactions lasting for several hours; they may respond to fluids, oxygen and analgesics. Dysrhythmias may occur and patients with serious reactions should have cardiac monitoring. As a general rule thiocarbamates can be absorbed by the skin, mucous membranes and respiratory and gastrointestinal tract. They are eliminated quickly via expired air and urine. continued. 4FARMERS TRI-ALLATE 500 EC SELECVE HERBICIDE Chemwatch Independent Material Safety Data Sheet Issue Date: 31-Mar-2011 CHEMWATCH 26-2349 Version No:2.0 CD 2011/1 Page 3 of 8 Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES EXTINGUISHING MEDIA ■ - Foam. - Dry chemical powder. - BCF (where regulations permit). - Carbon dioxide. FIRE FIGHTING ■ - Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. - Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves for fire only. - Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses. - Use fire fighting procedures suitable for surrounding area. When any large container (including road and rail tankers) is involved in a fire, consider evacuation by 100 metres in all directions. FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARD ■ - Combustible. - Slight fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame. - Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. - On combustion, may emit toxic fumes of carbon monoxide (CO). Combustion products include: carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen chloride, phosgene, other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic material. FIRE INCOMPATIBILITY ■ - Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. as ignition may result.

EYE ■ - Safety glasses with side shields. - Chemical goggles. - Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59]. HANDS/FEET ■ - Wear chemical protective gloves, eg. PVC. - Wear safety footwear or safety gumboots, eg. Rubber. NOTE: - The material may produce skin sensitisation in predisposed individuals. Care must be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin contact. - Contaminated leather items, such as shoes, belts and watch-bands should be removed and destroyed.
