2. Hazard  Identification


Emergency Overview:


Colorless, odorless solution with a slight yellow/greenish tint. Does not burn when wet.When dried it can decompose explosively under intense fire conditions forming oxygen and hydrogen chloride gas.

Moderate to Strong Oxidizer


Promotes combustion when dried. Reacts violently with sulfur and sulfur-containing materials, red phosphorus and strong reducing agents.At low pH, reacts releasing corrosive and reactive chlorine dioxide.

Routes of Entry:


Inhalation, skin contact/absorption, eye contact or ingestion


SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE 

Inhalation:

Inhalation of vapors or mists will cause irritation of the muscus membranes and respiratory tract. Symptoms may include coughing, bloody nose, and sneezing. Severe exposure may cause lung damage.

Skin contact/absorption:

Direct contact may cause irritation and or burns with symptoms of redness,  itching, swelling and possible alkali burns.

Eye Contact

Direct contact may cause irritation and or burns with symptoms of redness, itching, swelling and possible alkali burns, and destruction of tissue.

Ingestion:

Ingestion may cause gastroenteritis with any or all of the following symptoms: nausea,  vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, bleeding, or ulceration. Acute ingestion of large quantities may also cause anemia due to the oxidizing effects of the chemical, and renal failure.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Leak Or Spill Procedures

Contain spills.Collect into clean compatible metal or high density

Polyethylene containers. Wash away residues with large amounts of water.

Do not use rags, sawdust or other combustibles absorbents.

Use non reactive absorbant i.e. Clay, Fullers Earth.

Waste Control Procedures

Wash or incinerate all contaminated combustible material in an

environmentally  acceptable manner before it dries. Consult supplier regarding disposal of reclaimed sodium chlorite.



7. Handling Storage
