In case of contact with eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: At fire in the surroundings: all extinguishing agents permitted.

Special exposure hazards:Trisodium phosphate is not flammable.

Accidental release measures

Personal precaution: Avoid contact with eyes, skin and respiratory system. Use personal protection equipment.

Environmental precaution: Trisodium phosphate should not arrive into the soil or the aquatic environment.

Methods for cleaning up: Shovel up material and recycle if possible. Dispose of contamined material according to the prescriptions.

Handling and storage

Exposure controls / personal protection

The general dust exposure limit of 3 mg/m3, measured as alveolic part has to be observed (German TRGS 900, 2006).

Appropriate engineering controls: Ensure work area is well ventilated or exhausted (where appropriate and in line with the exposure scenarios). Provide eye wash station.

Respiratory protection: See annex for details of processes requiring respiratory protection. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory device such as EN141 or EN405.

Skin protection: Laboratory coat or overalls and plastic or rubber boots. Store protective clothing separately.

Eye protection: Tightly sealed chemical safety goggles (compliant with EN 166:2001)

Hand protection: Wear suitable gloves that are compliant with EN 374. Material: Chloroprene gloves or equivalent.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Non-reactive under recommended storage and handling conditions.

Stability: Alkaline reaction with water.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Reacts intensely with water

Conditions to avoid: Avoid humid / damp conditions.

Disposal considerations
