OSHA PEL 5000 PPM

ACGIH TLV: 5000PPM/30000STEL;93

Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:NO
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:IF THE CONCENTRATION OF CARBON DIOXIDE
EXCEEDS 10%, UNCONSCIOUSNESS CAN OCCUR WITHOUT WARNING,
PREVENTING SELF-RESCUE. AT MUCH HIGHER CONCENTRATIONS, CARBON
DIOXIDE DISPLACES THE OXYGEN IN AIR BELO W LEVELS NECESSARY TO
SUPPORT LIFE.
Effects of Overexposure:SYMPTOMS: 3-6% = HEADACHES, DYSPNEA,
PERSPIRATION 6-10% = HEADACHE
DYSPNEA,PERSPIRATION,TREMORS,VISUAL DISTURBANCES,UNCONSCIOUSNESOVER
10% = UNCONSCIOUSNESS

First Aid

First Aid:MOVE VICTIM TO AREA OF NORMAL ATMOS. SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING
APPARATUS MAY BE NECESSARY TO PREVENT TOXIC EXPOSURE OR
ASPHYXIATION OF RESCUERS. CPR & SUPPLEMENOXYGEN SHOULD BE GIVEN IF
VICTIM IS NOT BREATHING. FROZEN TISSUES SHOULD BEFLOODED OR SOAKED
WITH TEPID WATER, NOT HOT. CRYOGENIC BURNS WHICH RESULT IN
BLISTERING OR DEEPER TISSUE FREEZING SHOULD BE SEEN PROMPTLY BY A
PHYSICIAN.

Fire Fighting

Extinguishing Media:CARBON DIOXIDE IS AN EXTINGUISHING AGENT FOR CLASS
B&C FIRES

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:VENTILATE INDOOR AREAS WELL TO AVOID HAZARDOUS
CARBON DIOXIDE CONCENTRATIONS. VENTILATE WELL AND AVOID CONTACT
WITH COLD VAPORS OR DRY ICE. CARBON DIOXIDE IS A HEAVY GAS AND WILL
REMAIN IN LOW SPOT WITHOUT ASSISTED VENTILATION.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:USE/STORE ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED
AREAS. KEEP CYL.AWAY FROM SOURCES OF HEAT.SEGREGATE FULL/EMPTY
CYLSTORE CARBON DIOXIDE CYLINDER VALVE END UP.
Other Precautions:STORAGE AREAS SHOULD BE FREE OF COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL.
AVOID EXPOSURE TO AREAS WHERE SALT OR OTHER CORROSIVE CHEMICALS
ARE PRESENT. COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS SHOULD NOT BE REFILLED
EXCEPT BY QUALIFI ED PRODUCERS OF COMPRESSED GAS.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:USE SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS IN
OXYGEN-DEFICIENT ATMOS OR WHERE CARBONDIOXIDE EXCEEDS 1.5%.
CAUTION! RESPIRATORS WILL ONT FUNCTION. USE MAY RESULT IN
ASPHYXIATION.
Ventilation:NATURAL OR MECHANICAL WHERE GAS OR VAPORS ARE PRESENT.
Protective Gloves:IMPERMEABLE MATERIAL:LEATHER GLOVES
Eye Protection:SAFETY GLASSES
Supplemental Safety and Health
VENTS SHOULD BE SITUATED TO AVOID HIGHER THAN NORMAL CONCENTRATION OF
CARBON DIOXIDE IN WORK AREAS.

Disposal

Waste Disposal Methods:DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISPOSE OF RESIDUAL CARBON
DIOXIIN COMPRESSED GAS CYL.RETURN CYLINDER TO AIR PROD.ALWAYS
DISPOSE OF CARBON DIOXIDE OUTSIDE WHERE VAPORS CAN DISPERSE. DO
SO SLOWLY OR DRY ICE WILL FORM, REQUIRING LONGER PERIODS TO
VAPORIZE.
