2. hazards identification;

Under normal handling conditions the solid metal scrap presents no significant health hazards.
Wet material should never be charged into a molten metal bath. Eye protection should be used when cutting, grinding, machining or buffing product. Eye protection should also be used with any other process that generates dust, fumes or chips. Wash hands thoroughly after use, especially before eating.
Emergency Overview : Solid, odourless. Non-combustible as supplied.

Potential Health Effects: The following statements summarize the health effects generally expected in cases of overexposures.

Skin: In typical uses not relevant. Dust or fume from processing can cause irritation. Symptoms include redness, and itching.
Eyes: In typical uses not relevant. Small particles in the eyes may cause irritation, discoloration, and damage. Dust or fume from processing can cause irritation.
Inhalation: In typical uses not relevant. Health effect from mechanical processing (e.g. cutting, grinding, shredding..) and dust and fumes can cause irritation of the upper respiratory tract, congestion of nasal mucous membranes, ulceration and perforation of the nasal septum, and pharyngeal congestion. Inhalation of metal fumes may give rise to metal fume fever (high temperature, metallic taste, nausea, coughing, general weakness, muscle aches, and exhaustion). Limit values have to be regarded.
Environment: Spill Procedures : Product is a non-hazardous solid. No special precautions are required for spills of bulk material. Scrap metal can be reclaimed for reuse. Follow regulations regarding disposal.
The product consists of metal which fully encapsulates all components. Contamination is therefore likely to be minimal. Health effects from acute overexposure can cause nausea, fever, chills, shortness of breath and malaise (metal fume fever).
Carcinogenicity and Reproductive Hazard: Product as shipped: Does not present any persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic or very persistent and very bioaccumulative hazard. Dust and fume from mechanical processing can present a hazard (depending on metal alloy content).
Medical Conditions Aggravated By Exposure to Product, Components or Compounds Formed During Processing: Persons with pre-existing skin disorders or impaired liver, kidney, or pulmonary function. Asthma and chronic lung disease will be aggravated by dust or fume from processing.

4. first-aid measures;

First Aid: Eyes

In typical uses not relevant. Dust or fume from processing: Flush eyes with plenty water or saline for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician.

First Aid: Ingestion:

Ingestion of significant amounts of metals are unlikely. Seek medical help if large quantities are ingested.

First Aid: Skin

In typical uses not relevant. Dust or fume from processing: Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician if irritations persists.

First Aid: Inhalation:
In typical uses not relevant. Dust or fume from processing: Remove to fresh air. If unconscious or severely injured, check for clear airway, breathing and presence of pulse. Consult a physician

5. fire-fighting measures;

Solid scrap metal does not present a significant fire hazard under normal handling and storage conditions. Very finely divided particles may burn in air. Metal may react with acids, bases or oxidizers.
Extinguishing Media: Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical extinguishing agents or dry sand. Do not use halogenated fire extinguishers. Do not use water as an extinguishing agent around molten metal as water reacts violently with molten metal.
Fire fighting equipment: Use approved breathing apparatus, flame resistant clothing; hats, boots and gloves.
Fire and Explosion Hazards: Fresh, very finely ground metal may be pyrophoric. Dust is moderately flammable or explosive by heat, flame or chemical reaction with powerful oxidizers, metal oxides, acids, salts, bases. Exothermic reaction with water and finely divided powder possible with flammable gas evolution.
Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Molten metal may react violently with water. Fine particles, dust, or fumes may be flammable or explosive.

6. accidental release measures;

When dealing with finely divided powder or dust wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment. Isolate spill area, provide ventilation and vacuum up spill and place recovered material in a closed container for proper disposal. Take care not to raise dust. Use non-sparking tools.
For bulk material, if light, collect or sweep up and containerize for reclamation or disposal. For heavy bulk material use mechanical handling equipment to collect and containerize.
Dispose of in accordance with regulations.

7. handling and storage;

Handling and Storage: Product should be kept dry. Avoid generating dust. Avoid contact with sharp edges.
Requirements for Processes which Generates Dusts and Fines: If processing of these products includes operations where dust or extremely fine particulate is generated, obtain and follow the safety procedures and equipment guides. Provide

grounding and bonding where necessary to prevent accumulation of static charges during dust handling and transfer operations.
Packaging: Steel bonds and steel wires.
Other precautions: Do not storage product near by acidic or oxidizing material.

8. exposure controls/personal protection;

Bulk Scrap Material does not present a significant health hazard under normal handling and storage conditions. Minimise manual handling wherever possible. Use good housekeeping and sanitation practices.
Typically no special protection is required during use of the product beyond that required for the process operation being employed.
Ventilation System:
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Handle finely divided powders in a controlled environment and use a high efficiency particle respirator if exposed to dust/powder.
Skin Protection:
Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Personal protective Equipment:

Respiratory protection: In typical uses not relevant.

Eye protection: Wear safety glasses/goggles/visor as appropriate to avoid eye injury.

Skin protection: Wear cut resistant and impervious gloves to avoid repeated or prolonged skin contact with residual oils and to avoid any skin injury.

Other precautions: In typical uses not relevant.
