CAS RN:107-15-3

Protective Equipment / Clothing

Full rubber protective clothing, incl gloves and boots; chem worker's goggles; face shield where contact with face is likely. If necessary to enter closed area for 1/2 hr or less with mist, wear full-faced gas mask with canister approved by Bureau of Standards for use with ammonia.

If the use of respirators is necessary, the only respirators permitted are those that have been approved by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (formerly Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration) or by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. ... Employees should be provided with and required to use impervious clothing, gloves, face shields (eight-inch minimum), and other appropriate protective clothing necessary to prevent any possibility of skin contact with solid or liquid ethylenediamine. Employees should be provided with and required to use splash-proof safety goggles where there is any possibility of solid or liquid ethylenediamine or soln containing ethylenediamine contacting the eyes. ... An eye-wash fountain should be provided within the immediate work area for emergency use.

Respiratory protection: 500 ppm or less: A chemical cartridge respirator with a full facepiece and a cartridge(s) which provide protection against ethylenediamine. A gas mask with a chin-style or a front- or back-mounted canister which provides protection against ethylenediamine. Any supplied-air respirator with a full facepiece, helmet, or hood. Any self-contained breathing appratus with a full facepiece; 1000 ppm or less: A type C supplied-air respirator with a full facepiece operated in pressure-demand or other positive pressure mode or with a full facepiece, helmet, or hood operated in continuous-flow mode; Greater than 2000 ppm or entry and escape from unknown concentrations: Self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in pressure-demand or other positive pressure mode or a combination respirator which includes a type C supplied-air respirator with a full facepiece operated in pressure-demand or other positive pressure or continuous-flow mode and an auxillary self-contained breathing apparatus operated in pressure-demand or other positive pressure mode; Escape: any gas mask providing protection against ethylenediamine or any self-contained breathing apparatus.

Wear appropriate personal protective clothing to prevent skin contact.

Wear appropriate eye protection to prevent eye contact.

Eyewash fountains should be provided in areas where there is any possbility that workers could be exposed to the substance; this is irrespective of the recommendation involving the wearing of eye protection. />5%/

Facilities for quickly drenching the body should be provided within the immediate work area for emergency use where there is a possibility of exposure. (Note: It is intended that these facilities provide a sufficient quantity or flow of water to quickly remove the substance from any body areas likely to be exposed. The actual determination of what constitutes an adequate quick drench facility depends on the specific circumstances. In certain instances, a deluge shower should be readily available, whereas in others, the availability of water from a sink or hose could be considered adequate.)
