Description of First Aid Measures First-aid Measures General: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible). First-aid Measures After Inhalation: If symptoms occur, go into fresh air and ventilate suspected area. Seek medical attention. First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash with soap and water followed by rinsing with water. Seek medical attention if irritation develops or persists. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Rinse cautiously with water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Obtain medical attention if irritation develops or persists. First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention. 4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms/Injuries: Irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation: May cause irritation to the respiratory tract, sneezing, coughing, burning sensation of throat with constricting sensation of the larnyx and difficulty breathing. Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact: Causes serious eye irritation. Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion: Ingestion is likely to be harmful or have adverse effects. Chronic Symptoms: None known. 4.3. Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment Needed If exposed or concerned, get medical advice and attention. If ingested, may cause methemoglobenemia - emergency response should treat appropriately, such as by intravenous administration of methylene blue. SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES 5.1. Extinguishing Media Suitable Extinguishing Media: Evacuate the area for 1 mile if ammonium nitrate is involved in a fire. Only water shall be used on ammonium nitrate fires. Dry chemical, foams, steam and smothering devices are not effective and can lead to possible explosion of the ammonium nitrate. General extinguishers may be used on fires not involving the ammonium nitrate such as conveyors, electrical equipment, tires, bearings, general plant equipment or the like when only minimal amounts of ammonium nitrate are present. For large fires use unmanned monitor nozzles if available. Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or regular foam. 5.2. Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture Fire Hazard: May intensify fire; oxidizer. Will accelerate the burning of other combustibles, resulting in more rapid spread of fire. Explosion Hazard: Heat may build pressure, rupturing closed containers, spreading fire and increasing risk of burns and injuries. Smothering, contact with organic material, or combustible material may cause an explosive situation. Reactivity: May cause or intensify fire; oxidizer. May accelerate the burning of other combustible materials. Smothering, contact with organic material, or combustible material may cause an explosive situation. 5.3. Advice for Firefighters Precautionary Measures Fire: If a fire has not reached the ammonium nitrate, cool the ammonium nitrate or container thereof to prevent the fire from reaching it. Ammonium nitrate does not burn by itself and thus needs to be kept separate from combustible materials. Ammonium nitrate is an oxidizer and will significantly increase the burning rate of combustible Materials. When in confinement and in the presence of a strong detonation sources the material can explode when subject to sudden shock, pressure, or high temperatures. Avoid temperatures above 210 C (410 F) which may cause thermal decomposition or explosion, especially in confined or poorly ventilated spaces. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Firefighting Instructions: Evacuate the area for 1 mile if ammonium nitrate is involved in a fire. Only fires which are in the initial or beginning stage or those involving minimal amounts of ammonium nitrate in a manufacturing setting or in an area where ammonium nitrate is stored or in vehicles transporting ammonium nitrate should be attacked using manual fire extinguishing methods (fire extinguishers, hose streams, etc.) that require a human operator. If a fire in an area where ammonium nitrate is stored or in vehicles transporting ammonium nitrate progresses beyond the incipient stage or involves the ammonium nitrate, evacuation is required. Protection During Firefighting: Fire fighters downwind from a fire should wear selfcontained breathing apparatus. Fire fighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves and rubber boots. SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES 6.1. Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures General Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid breathing (dust, vapor, mist, gas). Avoid getting in eyes or on skin. Keep away from combustible material. 6.1.1. For Non-emergency Personnel Protective Equipment: Use appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE). Emergency Procedures: Evacuate unnecessary personnel. 6.1.2. For Emergency Responders Protective Equipment: Use appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE). Emergency Procedures: Ventilate area. 6.2. Environmental Precautions Prevent entry to sewers and public waters. 6.3. Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up For Containment: Avoid generation of dust during clean-up of spills. Use a broom for small spills do not mix with other materials. Methods for Cleaning Up: Collect spillage for possible reuse. Clean up spills immediately and dispose of waste safely. Contact competent authorities after a spill. Do not take up in combustible material such as: saw dust or cellulosic material. 6.4. Reference to Other Sections See heading 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection. SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE 7.1. Precautions for Safe Handling Additional Hazards When Processed: When heated to decomposition, emits toxic fumes. Smothering, contact with organic material, or combustible material in a fire situation may be an explosive situation. Do not puncture or incinerate container. Hygiene Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety procedures. Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water before eating, drinking, or smoking and again when leaving work. 7.2. Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities Technical Measures: Comply with applicable regulations 29 CFR 1910.109(i).
