8.2.  Exposure Controls
Appropriate Engineering      |Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes  
Controls                     |per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should  
                             |be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process
                             |enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other     
                             |engineering controls to maintain airborne levels    
                             |below recommended exposure limits. If exposure      
                             |limits have not been established, maintain airborne 
                             |levels to an acceptable level. Eye wash facilities  
                             |and emergency shower must be available when handling
                             |this product.
