Emergency Overview

Physical Description & colour: Clear, colourless liquid.
Odour: Aromatic/chemical odour.
Major Health Hazards: toxic if swallowed, danger of cumulative effects, harmful by inhalation and in contact with
skin, irritating to eyes and skin, possible skin sensitiser. Signs and symptoms associated with mild exposures to
organophosphate and carbamate pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, loss of appetite with nausea,
stomach cramps and diarrhoea; blurred vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the eye;
excessive sweating and salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute; rippling of surface muscles just
under the skin. These symptoms may be mistaken for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset stomach.
Moderately severe organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all the signs and symptoms
found in mild poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort and
tightness; exhibits marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary
urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

section 4 - First Aid Measures: 

General Information:

You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by
this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all
times. Have this SDS with you when you call.
If swallowed, splashed on skin or inhaled, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor at once. Remove any
contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Hospital treatment may be necessary.
Inhalation: If symptoms of poisoning become evident, contact a Poisons Information Centre, or call a doctor at
once. Remove source of contamination or move victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, oxygen may be beneficial if
administered by trained personnel, preferably on a doctor's advice. DO NOT allow victim to move about
unnecessarily. Symptoms of pulmonary oedema can be delayed up to 48 hours after exposure.
Skin Contact: Wash gently and thoroughly with warm water (use non-abrasive soap if necessary) for 10-20 minutes
or until product is removed. Under running water, remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g.
watchbands and belts) and completely decontaminate them before reuse or discard. If irritation persists, repeat
flushing and seek medical attention.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 15 minutes or until
the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the
unaffected eye or onto the face. Obtain medical attention immediately. Take special care if exposed person is wearing
contact lenses.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting; rinse mouth thoroughly with water and contact a Poisons
Information Centre, or call a doctor at once. Give activated charcoal if instructed.

section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures: 

Fire and Explosion Hazards: The major hazard in fires is usually inhalation of heated and toxic or oxygen
deficient (or both), fire gases. There is a moderate risk of an explosion from this product if commercial quantities are
involved in a fire. Firefighters should take care and appropriate precautions. Violent steam generation or eruption may
occur upon application of direct water stream on hot liquids. Vapours from this product are heavier than air and may
accumulate in sumps, pits and other low-lying spaces, forming potentially explosive mixtures. They may also flash
back considerable distances.
Fire decomposition products from this product may be toxic if inhaled. Take appropriate protective measures.
Extinguishing Media: In case of fire, use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, water fog. Alcohol resistant foam is
the preferred firefighting medium but, if it is not available, normal foam can be used. Try to contain spills, minimise
spillage entering drains or water courses.
Fire Fighting: If a significant quantity of this product is involved in a fire, call the fire brigade. There is a danger of a
violent reaction or explosion if significant quantities of this product are involved in a fire. Recommended personal
protective equipment is liquid-tight chemical protective clothing and breathing apparatus. Cool closed, undamaged
containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Mild cases
Headache, blurred vision, weakness, sweating, mild chest pain, nausea and vomiting.
Severe cases
Cyanosis (blueness of the skin, as from lack of oxygen), muscular twitching, spasms, miosis (pinpoint pupils) and
respiratory paralysis. These symptoms commence from one to three hours after excessive exposure.
Oral toxicity                                                             LD50 rat: approx. 100 mg/kg (derived from data for similar product)
Dermal toxicity                                                        LD50 rat: approx. 1000 mg/kg (derived from data for similar product)
Inhalation toxicity                                                    LC50 (4 h) rat: 0.3 mg/L aerosol (omethoate active ingredient)
Skin irritation                                                           Non irritant (rabbit) (derived from data for similar product)
Irritation to mucous membranes irritating (rabbit) (derived from data for similar product)
Sensitisation Omethoate is a skin sensitiser.
Repeated exposure to omethoate may cause allergic disorders. Repeated minor exposure may have a cumulative
poisoning effect. The main health effects from repeated exposure would be toxic symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition as described above. Animal studies with omethoate have shown no evidence of oncogenic effect, no
evidence of carcinogenic effects and no teratogenic potential.
The long term effects in animals noted for the solvent, 1-methoxy-2-propyl acetate, were headaches, dizziness and
possible nausea. The solvent was not mutagenic in the Ames test, and did not cause teratological or other
developmental effects.
