SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                   

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: All employees who handle Magnesium Sulfate     
should be trained to handle it safely. Do not breathe dust. Avoid allcontact with 
skin and eyes. Use this product only with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly   
after handling.                                                                   
Hygiene Measures:                                                                 

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                               
Storage Conditions: Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Store          
containers in a cool, dry location, away from direct sunlight, sources of intense 
heat, or where freezing is possible. Keep containers closed--material is          
hygroscopic. Material should be stored in secondary containers or in a diked area,
as appropriate. Store containers away from incompatible chemicals (see Section 10,
Stability and Reactivity). Storage areas should be made of fire-resistant         
materials. Post warning and "NO SMOKING" signs in storage and use areas, as       
appropriate. Use corrosion-resistant structural materials, lighting, and          
ventilation systems in the storage area. Floors should be sealed to prevent       
absorption of this material. Inspect all incoming containers before storage, to   
ensure containers are properly labeled and not damaged. Have appropriate          
extinguishing equipment in the storage area (i.e., sprinkler system, portable fire
extinguishers). Empty containers may contain residual particulates; therefore,    
empty containers should be handled with care. Never store food, feed, or drinking 
water in containers which held this product. Keep this material away from food,   
drink and animal feed. Do not store this material in open or unlabeled containers.
Limit quantity of material stored. Wipe down area of use periodically to avoid the
accumulation of dusts.
