3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Eye

Solid or dust is moderate eye irritant due to its abrasive action.

Inhalation

May be regarded as nuisance dust but can be irritating if inhaled at high concentrations and may cause symptoms such as coughing and sneezing. The TLV (TWA) for occupational exposure nominate 10 mg/ m3 as total dust and 5 mg/ m3 as a respirable dust.

Skin

Non hazardous.

Ingestion

There are no known hazards caused by accidental ingestion of small amount such as might occur during normal handling. Ingestion of larger quantities might cause irritation of the gastro-intestinal system as a result of abrasive action.

Radiation

Garnet contains trace (ppm level) amount of the naturally occurring radioactive substances such as Uranium & Thorium. However the concentration of the Uranium and Thorium are not sufficient for garnet to be classified as a radioactive substance under International Atomic Energy Agency Regulation for the safe transport of radioactive material.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye

Hold eye as open and rinse continuously with a gentle stream of clean running water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if any irritation or soreness of eye persists.

Inhalation

Remove from source of exposure into fresh air and seek medical attention if any symptoms persist.

Skin

No specific first aid is required for skin contact. Remove clothing & wash skin with soap and /or water. Seek medical attention if any irritation or soreness of the skin develops.

Ingestion

First aid is unlikely to be required but if necessary rinse mouth with water ensuring that mouth wash is not swallowed and seek medical attention as a precautionary measure if large amounts have been ingested.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

This is a non-combustible material. Use whatever protective equipment and extinguishing agent that are suitable for the primary cause of fire.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Wear safety equipment for normal handling, avoid generating dust, sweep or vacuum up, recycle/ reuse or dispose to landfill subject to local regulations. Transport is not regulated and no specific storage requirements.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Storage

Transport is not regulated and there is no specific storage requirement but storage should be designed to minimize creation of the dust.

Spillage

Wear protective equipment as specified for handling. Sweep or vacuum up and reuse or dispose. Avoid generation of dust.

Waste disposal

Disposal to land fill such a way as to prevent generation of dust and subjected to local regulations.

Fire explosion

Incombustible.

Fire extinguishing

Use whatever protective equipment and extinguishing agent that are suitable for primary cause of fire.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Ventilation

Ventilation requirement will depend upon handling methods and amount in use but extraction or make up air may be required to minimise dust layers/levels below exposure limits.

Protective equipment

Safety goggles or glasses. A dust type respirator may be required to prevent ingestion.

TLV ( TWA )

10 mg/m3 as total dust.

TLV ( TWA )

5 mg/ m3 as respirable dust.
