Section 2 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
RISK
Causes burns.
Risk of serious damage to eyes.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS
SWALLOWED
The material can produce chemical burns within the oral cavity and gastrointestinal tract following ingestion.
Even a small amount of nitric acid causes severe corrosion of the stomach, burning pain, vomiting and shock, possibly causing
non-healing scarring of the gastrointestinal tract and stomach.
Death may be delayed 12 hours to 14 days or to several months.
EYE
The material can produce chemical burns to the eye following direct contact.
Vapors or mists may be extremely irritating.
If applied to the eyes, this material causes severe eye damage.
Eye contact with concentrated nitric acid may give no pain, whilst diluted solution causes intense pain and both can cause
permanent eye damage or blindness.
Burns may result in shrinkage of the eyeball, symblepharon (adhesions between tarsal and bulbar conjunctivae), permanent corneal
opacification, and visual impairment leading to blindness.
SKIN
The material can produce chemical burns following direct contactwith the skin.
Open cuts, abraded or irritated skin should not be exposed to this material.
Skin contact with nitric acid causes yellow discolouration of the skin, blisters and scars that may not heal.
The skin may be stained bright-yellow or yellowish brown due to the formation of xanthoproteic acid.
INHALED
Not normally a hazard due to non-volatile nature of product.
Corrosive acids can cause irritation of the respiratory tract, with coughing, choking and mucous membrane damage.
There may be dizziness, headache, nausea and weakness.
CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS
Repeated or prolonged exposure to acids may result in the erosion of teeth, swelling and or ulceration of mouth lining.
Irritation of airways to lung, with cough, and inflammation of lung tissue often occurs.
Prolonged or repeated overexposure to low concentrations of nitric acid vapour may cause chronic bronchitis, corrosion of teeth,
even chemical pneumonitis.

the upper and lower lids.


Continue flushing until advised to stop by the Poisons Information Center or a doctor, or for at least 15 minutes.
Transport to hospital or doctor without delay.
SKIN
If skin or hair contact occurs:
Immediately flush body and clothes with large amounts of water, using safety shower if available.
Quickly remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear.
Wash skin and hair with running water. Continue flushing with water until advised to stop by the Poisons Information Center.
Transport to hospital, or doctor.
INHALED
If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating first aid
procedures.
Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket
mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary.
Inhalation of vapors or aerosols (mists, fumes) may cause lung edema. Corrosive substances may cause lung damage (e.g. lung edema,
fluid in the lungs).
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN
Treat symptomatically.
For acute or short term repeated exposures to strong acids:
Airway problems may arise from laryngeal edema and inhalation exposure. Treat with 100% oxygen initially.
Respiratory distress may require cricothyroidotomy if endotracheal intubation is contraindicated by excessive swelling
Intravenous lines should be established immediately in all cases where there is evidence of circulatory compromise.
Strong acids produce a coagulation necrosis characterized by formation of a coagulum (eschar) as a result of the dessicating
action of the acid on proteins in specific tissues.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

NOTE: Detector tubes for nitric acid, measuring in excess of 5 ppm, are commercially available.
The TLV-TWA is protective against corrosion of the skin, tissue and other membranes, against irritation to the eyes and mucous
membranes, and against acute pulmonary oedema or chronic obstructive lung disease. It is not clear whether the TLV-TWA and STEL
values will prevent potentiation of the toxicity of inhaled nitrogen dioxide.

PERSONAL PROTECTION

RESPIRATOR
Type AE-P Filter of sufficient capacity. (AS/NZS 1716 & 1715, EN 143:2000 & 149:2001, ANSI Z88 or national equivalent)
EYE
Chemical goggles.
Full face shield.
Contact lenses pose a special hazard; soft lenses may absorb irritants and all lenses concentrate them.
HANDS/FEET
Wear chemical protective gloves, eg. PVC.
Wear safety footwear or safety gumboots, eg. Rubber.
When handling corrosive liquids, wear trousers or overalls outside of boots, to avoid spills entering boots.
The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality which vary from
manufacturer to manufacturer. Where the chemical is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material can
not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.
The exact break through time for substances has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and
has to be observed when making a final choice.
Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include:
frequency and duration of contact,
chemical resistance of glove material,
glove thickness and
dexterity
Select gloves tested to a relevant standard (e.g. Europe EN 374, US F739, AS/NZS 2161.1 or national equivalent).
When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 5 or higher (breakthrough time
greater than 240 minutes according to EN 374, AS/NZS 2161.10.1 or national equivalent) is recommended.
When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 3 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 60 minutes
according to EN 374, AS/NZS 2161.10.1 or national equivalent) is recommended.
Contaminated gloves should be replaced.
Gloves must only be worn on clean hands. After using gloves, hands should be washed and dried thoroughly. Application of a nonperfumed moisturiser is recommended.
OTHER
Overalls.
PVC Apron.
PVC protective suit may be required if exposure severe.
Eyewash unit.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS
General exhaust is adequate under normal operating conditions. Local exhaust ventilation may be required in special
circumstances.
