Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.Wash effected area with soap or mild detergent and large amounts of water.If irritation persists, seek medical Ingestion: if swallowed, induce vomiting by giving two glasses of water and sticking fingers down throat.
Keep victim's head lower than hips to prevent aspiration into lungs.Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.Call a physician immediately.
ANTIDOTE: Give ethanol, 50% (100 proof), 1.5 mL/Kg orally initially, diluted to no more than 5% solution, followed by 0.5-1.0 mL/Kg every 2 hours orally or intravenously for 4 days in order to reduce metabolism of methanol and to allow time for its excretion.
Blood ethanol level should be in the range of 1-1.5 mg/mL (Dreisbach, Handbook of Poisoning, 12th ed.).Antidote should be administered by qualified medical personnel.Buffer Solutions:Wash affected area with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes.If ingested, contact a physician.FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURESFIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD: DANGEROUS FIRE HAZARD AND MODERATE EAT, FLAME, OR OXIDIZERS.VAPORS ARE HEAVIER THAN AIR AND MAY TRAVEL A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE TO A SOURCE OF IGNITION AND FLASH BACK.
VAPOR-AIR MIXTURE IS EXPLOSIVE.
LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMITS: 6.0%
UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: 36.0%
AUTOIGNITION TEMP: 752F (385C)
FIRE FIGHTING MEDIA: DRY CHEMICAL, CARBON DIOXIDE, WATER SPRAY OR ALCOHOL-RESISTANT FOAM (1993 Emergency Response Guidebook, DOT P 5800.5).FOR LARGER FIRES USE WATER SPRAY, F(1993 Emergency Response Guidebook), DOT P 5800.5).
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Containers may explode in fire, methanol burns with a non-luminous blue flame.Vapors are heavy and will travel long distances back to a source of ignition.
POISONOUS GASES ARE PRODUCED IN THE FIRE.
CONTAINERS MAY EXPLODE IN FIRE.
VENTILATION:Provide local exhaust or process enclosure ventilation to meet the published exposure limits.Ventilation equipment must be explosion-proof.RESPIRATORY PROTECTIONWhere the potential exists for exposures over 200 ppm, use a NIOSH approved respirator with an organic vapor cartridge/canister.More protection is provided by a full facepiece respirator than by a half-mask respirator, and even greater protection is provided by a powered-air purifying respirator.
FOR FIRE FIGHTING AND OTHER IMMEDIATELY DANGEROUS TO LIFE OR HEALTH CONDITIONS: Any self-contained breathing apparatus that has a full face piece and is operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode.Any supplied-air respirator that has a full face piece and is operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode in combination with an auxiliary self-contained breathing apparatus operated in pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode.
CLOTHING:Employee must wear appropriate protective (impervious) clothing and equipment to prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact with this substance.
Employee must wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent contact with this substance.ACGIH recommends NITRILE rubber or VITON as good to excellent protective materials.
Employee must wear splash-proof or dust-resistant goggles to prevent eye contact with this substance.
EMERGENCY EYE WASH:Where there is any possibility that an employee's eyes may be exposed to this substance, the employer should provide an eye wash fountain within the immediate work area for emergency use
.Eye wash stations must, at a minimum, provide a full 15 minutes EXPOSURE LIMITS:100% Methyl Alcohol (Methanol):
