Antiseptic, abrasive hand cleaning gel.
"antiseptic abrasive hand cleaner gel"
Irritating to skin.
HARMFUL - May cause lung damage if swallowed.
Although ingestion is not thought to produce harmful effects, the material may still be damaging to the health of the individual following ingestion, especially where pre- existing organ (e.g. liver, kidney) damage is evident. Present definitions of harmful or toxic substances are generally based on doses producing mortality (death) 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. Considered an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments.
There is some evidence to suggest that this material can causeeye irritation and damage in some persons.
This material can cause inflammation of the skin oncontact in some persons. Skin contact is not thought to have harmful health effects, however the material may still produce health damage following entry through wounds, lesions or abrasions. The material may cause severe 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. Repeated exposures may produce severe ulceration.
Inhalation may produce health damage*. The material is not thought to produce respiratory irritation (as classified using animal models). Nevertheless inhalation of the material, especially for prolonged periods, may produce respiratory discomfort and occasionally, distress. Not normally a hazard due to non-volatile nature of product. Inhalation hazard is increased at higher temperatures.
Principal route of exposure is usually by skin contact. Skin contact is not harmful except for rare sensitive individuals. Human ingestion of kerosene results in rapid absorption from the gastro- intestinal tract, and systemic effects may include vomiting, diarrhoea, and in severe cases drowsiness and central nervous system depression, progressing to coma and death. Aspiration may cause haemorrhaging and pulmonary oedema, progressing to pneumonitis and renal involvement. Inhalation of high concentrations of vapour from heated material may result in headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, convulsions and coma.
