Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:YES
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:OXYGEN IS NONTOXIC UNDER USUAL
CONDITIONS OF USE.BREATHING PURE OXY AT ONE ATMOSPHERE,HOWEVER,MAU
PRODUCE COUGH & CHEST PAINS W/IN 8-24 HRS.CONCENTRATIONS OF 60% MAY
PRODUCE THESE SYMPTOMS IN SEVERAL DAYS.AT TWO ATMOSPHERES SYMPTOMS
OCCUR IN 2-3 HRS.
Effects of Overexposure:LIQ OXYGEN OR COLD GAS WILL FREEZE TISSUES &
CAN CAUSE SEVERE CRYOGENIC BURNS.PARTIAL PRESSURE OF OXY IN EXCESS
OF TWO ATMOSPHERES MAY PRODUCE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
MANIFESTATIONS INCLUDING TINGLING FINGERS & TOES,VISUAL & HEARING
DISTURBANCES,ABNORMAL SENSATIONS,IMPAIRED
COORDINATION,CONFUSION,MUSCLE TWITCHING.

First Aid

First Aid:IF CRYOGENIC LIQ OR COLD BOIL-OFF GAS CONTACTS A WORKER'S
SKIN OR EYES,FROZEN TISSUES SHOULD BE FLOODED OR SOAKED W/TEPID
WTR.DO NOT USE HOT WTR.BURNS WHICH RESULT IN BLISTERING OR DEEPER
TISSUE FREEZ ING 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:SOME MATERIALS WHICH ARE NONCOMBUSTIBLE
IN AIR WILL BURN IN THE PRESENCE OF OXY.

Accidental Release

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

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:USE IN WELL VENTILATED AREA.DO NOT
DRAG,ROLL OR SLIDE CYLS.USE SUITABLE HAND TRUCK.KEEP CYLS AWAY FROM
