SECTION VI: Health Hazard Data
Routes of Entry: Eye contact, Skin contact, Inhalation, and Ingestion
Effects of Overexposure
Eyes: Caustic soda is destructive to eye tissues on contact. Will cause severe burns that result in damage to the eyes and even blindness.
Skin: Caustic soda is destructive to tissues contacted and produces severe burns.
Inhalation: Airborne concentrations of dust, mist, or spray of caustic soda may cause damage to the upper respiratory tract and even to the lung tissue proper which could produce chemical pneumonia, depending upon severity of exposure.
Ingestion: Caustic Soda can cause severe burns and complete tissue perforation of mucous membranes of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and stomach if swallowed.
Acute Overexposure: Burns, resulting in frequently deep ulceration and ultimate scarring.
Chronic Overexposure: The chronic local effect may consist of multiple areas of superficial destruction of the skin or of primary irritant dermatitis. Similarly, inhalation of dust, spray or mist may result in varying degrees of irritation or damage to the respiratory tract tissues and an increased susceptibility to respiratory illness.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY!
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes holding eyelids apart to ensure flushing of the entire eye surface. Washing eyes within 1 minute is essential to achieve maximum effectiveness. Seek Medical attention immediately.
Skin: Immediately wash contaminated skin with plenty of water. This may be followed with a rinse with vinegar or dilute acetic acid (3% solution) if available. Remove contaminated clothing and footwear and wash clothing before reuse. Discard footwear which cannot be decontaminated. Seek medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: Get person out of contaminated area to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, artificial respiration should be started. Oxygen may be administered, if readily available. Seek medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Give large quantities of water. If available, give several glasses of milk. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention immediately.

SECTION VII: Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Steps to be taken in Case Material is released or spilled: Stop leaks. Contain spill. Remove as much as possible (e.g. shovel up). Neutralize remaining traces of mineral with dilute acid; then flush area with water followed by liberal covering of sodium carbonate. Reuse spilled material, if possible, otherwise, place in closed, labeled container and store in a safe place to await proper disposal. Persons performing this work should wear adequate personal protective equipment and clothing.
Waste Disposal Method: Dispose of in accordance with all federal, state and local regulations concerning health and pollution. Dispose via approved chemical waste disposal, if regulations permit.
Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storing: Store in a dry area; avoid contact with acids.
Other Precautions: Do not take internally or inhale dust. Avoid eye
SECTION VIII: Control Measure
Respiratory: Use NIOSH approved respirator for dusts and mists. Use air purifying respirator when product is in contact with reducing sugars.
Local Exhaust: Preferable to keep caustic soda below 2.0mg/m3
Mechanical (General): Acceptable
Protective Gloves: Rubber or PVC type gloves
Eye Protection: Chemical splash goggles and face shield.
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment: Usually not needed unless splashing is excessive.
