Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:YES
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:BREATHING PURE OXYGEN AT ONE ATMOS,MAY
PRODUCE COUGH & CHEST PAINS W/IN 8-24 HOURS.CONCENTRATIONS OF 60%
MAY PRODUCE THESE SYMPTOMS IN SEVERAL DAYS.AT TWO ATMOSSYMPTOMS
OCCUR IN 2-3 HRS.PARTIAL PRESSU RE OF OXY IN EXCESS OF TWO ATMOS
MAY PRODUCE A VARIETY OF CENTRAL NERVOUS SYS MANIFESTATIONS.
Effects of Overexposure:LIQUID OSYGEN OR COLD GAS WILL FREEZE TISSUES &
CAN CAUSE SEVERE CRYOGENIC (EXTREMELY LOW TEMPERATURE)BURNS.

First Aid

First Aid:IF CRYOGENIC LIQUID OR COLD BOIL-OFF GAS CONTACTS A WORKER'S
SKIN OR EYES,FROZEN TISSUES SHOULD BE FLOODED OR SOAKED W/TEPID
WATER(105-115F;41-46C).DO NOT USE HOT WATER.BURNS WHICH RESULT IN
BLISTERI NG OR DEEPER TISSUE FREEZING SHOULD BE SEEN PROMPTLY BY A
PHYSICIAN.

Fire Fighting

Flash Point:NA
Lower Limits:NA
Upper Limits:NA
Extinguishing Media:NA
Fire Fighting Procedures:OXYGEN IS NONFLAMMABLE,BUT SUPPORTS &
VIGOROUSLY ACCELERATES COMBUSTION OF FLAMMABLES.TO FIGHT FIRES,SHUT
OFF SOURCES OF OXYGEN & FIGHT LIKE CONVENTIONAL FIRE.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:OXYGEN IS NONFLAMMABLE,BUT SUPPORTS &
VIGOROUSLY ACCELERATES COMBUSTION OF FLAMMABLES.SOME MTRLS WHICH
ARE NONCOMBUSTIBLE IN AIR WILL BURN IN PRESENCE OF OXY.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:PREVENT LIQ OXY FROM CONTACTING
GREASE,OIL,ASPHALTOR COMBUSTIBLES.VENTILATE AREA TO EVAP & DISPERSE
OXY.FLUSH AREA W/LARGE QTYS OF WTR.DO NOT ENTER AREAS OF HIGH
OXYGEN CONCENTRATION,WHICH CAN SATURAT E CLOTHING & INCREASE ITS
FLAMMABILITY.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:USE/STORE IN WELL VENT AREA.DO NOT
DRAG,ROLL OR SLIDE.USE SUITABLE HAND TRUCK.KEEP CYLS AWAY FROM
SOURCES OF HEAT.SEGREGATE FULL/EMPTY CYLS.
Other Precautions:OXYGEN IS NOT TO BE USED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR
COMPRESSED AIR.APPLICATIONS SUCH ASCLEANING,DUSTIN,POWERING
