Section 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
cellular response at sufficiently high concentrations, the cellular response
caused by P.N.O.C.s has the following characteristics:
– the architecture of the air spaces remain intact,
– scar tissue (collagen) is not synthesised to any degree,
– tissue reaction is potentially reversible.
Extensive concentrations of P.N.O.C.s may:
– seriously reduce visibility,
– cause unpleasant deposits in the eyes, ears and nasal passages,
– contribute to skin or mucous membrane injury by chemical or mechanical action,
per se, or by the rigorous skin cleansing procedures necessary for their
removal. [ACGIH]
This limit does not apply:
– to brief exposures to higher concentrations
– nor does it apply to those substances that may cause physiological impairment
at lower concentrations but for which a TLV has as yet to be determined.
This exposure standard applies to particles which
– are insoluble or poorly soluble* in water or, preferably, in aqueous lung
fluid (if data is available) and
– have a low toxicity (i.e.. are not cytotoxic, genotoxic, or otherwise
chemically reactive with lung tissue, and do not emit ionizing radiation, cause
immune sensitization, or cause toxic effects other than by inflammation or by a
mechanism of lung overload).
CALCIUM CARBONATE:
The TLV-TWA is thought to be protective against the significant risk of
physical irritation associated with exposure.
WATER:
No exposure limits set by NOHSC or ACGIH.
PERSONAL PROTECTION
EYE
– Safety glasses with side shields
– Chemical goggles.
– Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and
concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens
or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This
should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of
chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid
personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be
readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation
immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be
removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation – lens should be removed
in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC
NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59].
HANDS/FEET
Wear general protective gloves, eg. light weight rubber gloves.
OTHER
No special equipment needed when handling small quantities.
OTHERWISE:
– Overalls.
– Barrier cream.
– Eyewash unit.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS

Section 11 – TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS
SWALLOWED
The material has NOT been classified by EC Directives or other classification
systems as “harmful by ingestion”. This is because of the lack of corroborating
animal or human evidence. The material may still be damaging to the health of
the individual, following ingestion, especially where pre-existing organ (eg.
liver, kidney) damage is evident. Present definitions of harmful or toxic
substances are generally based on doses producing mortality rather than those
producing morbidity (disease, ill-health). Gastrointestinal tract discomfort may
produce nausea and vomiting. In an occupational setting however, ingestion of
insignificant quantities is not thought to be cause for concern.
EYE
Although the material is not thought to be an irritant (as classified by EC
Directives), direct contact with the eye may produce transient discomfort
characterised by tearing or conjunctival redness (as with windburn).
The material may produce severe irritation to the eye causing pronounced
inflammation. Repeated or prolonged exposure to irritants may produce
conjunctivitis.
SKIN
The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or skin irritation

Section 11 – TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
following contact (as classified by EC Directives using animal models).
Nevertheless, good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum
and that suitable gloves be used in an occupational setting.
The material may cause skin irritation after prolonged or repeated exposure and
may produce on contact skin redness, swelling, the production of vesicles,
scaling and thickening of the skin.
INHALED
The material is not thought to produce adverse health effects or irritation of
the respiratory tract (as classified by EC Directives using animal models).
Nevertheless, good hygiene practice requires that exposure be kept to a minimum
and that suitable control measures be used in an occupational setting.
CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
Long-term exposure to the product is not thought to produce chronic effects
adverse to the health (as classified by EC Directives using animal models);
nevertheless exposure by all routes should be minimised as a matter of course.
Section 12 – ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
