3. Hazard Identification
Main Hazards Highly Flammable
Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. Eye Irritation – Cat 2A Skin – Cat 2
Health Effects Inhalation – Ingestion Inhalation of the fumes or ingestion may cause headache, nausea, muscular pain.
Irritation of the eyes and nose may result from contact with soldering fumes.
Chronic (Prolonged effects) Anaemia, insomnia, weakness, constipation, nausea and abdominal pain due to
ingestion. Skin rash, damage of mucous membrane due to skin exposure and
inhalation.

5. Fire Fighting Measures
Extinguishing media Use Carbon Dioxide, Dry chemical, Alcohol resistant foam. Beware of the
possibility of re-ignition.
Special Hazards Dangerous when exposed to heat of flame. Containers may explode in heat of fire.
Vapours can travel a considerable distance to source of ignition to cause flashback.
Protective Equipment for Fire Fighting Wear full protective clothing and use breathing apparatus.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Personal Precautions Wear appropriate protective clothing. Eliminate sources of ignition. Vapour is
heavier than air and will collect in basements etc.. Avoid breathing vapour.
Precaution. statements – Eyes P305+351+338. Inhallation P304+341 Skin P302+P352
Environmental Precautions Try to prevent the product entering drains or water courses.
Spillages Small spillages can be flushed with large volumes of water. Larger spillages should
be collected for disposal. Beware of vapour collecting to form explosive
concentrations. Allow to evaporate if it is safe to do so or contain using absorbent
material such as earth, sand or other inert material.
7. Handling and Storage
Handling Use in well ventilated area. Avoid breathing in vapour, mist or resultant soldering
fumes. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep container tightly closed.
Larger containers (20l) are heavy. Take care when lifting and pouring.
Storage Storage area should be well ventilated, cool and dry. Store in original containers.
Re package only if container becomes damaged. Store away from sources of heat
or ignition.
8. Exposure Controls – Personal Protection
Occupational Exposure Limits TLV OSHA PEL ACGHIH TLV
Propan-2-OL 400ppm 400ppm 400ppm
Engineering Control Measures Ensure work area is well ventilated and equipment exhausted. If pouring is needed
then this should be arrange so as not expose the operator to unnecessary vapour
levels.
Respiratory Protection Respiratory protection if there is a risk of exposure to high vapour levels.
Hand protection Nitrile rubber gloves or PVC gloves should be used when handling or pouring
Eye Protection Close fitting Chemical goggles should be worn when handling or pouring.
Skin Protection Normal work wear but rubber apron if there is a danger of splashing or spillage.
Foot Protection Wear protective boots or toe caps when handling drums.
