2. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS Chemical Name
Dichlorvos (DDVP) Dimethyl 2,2-diclorovinylphosphate
COMMENTS: Ingredients not identified are proprietary or non-hazardous. Values are not product specifications. 3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: DANGER – POISON. Fatal if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin and eyes. Rapidly
absorbed through skin. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Do not breathe vapor or spray mist. Repeated inhalation or skin contact may, without symptoms, progressively increase susceptibility to Dichlorvos (DDVP) poisoning. Combustible. DO NOT use or store near heat, sparks, open flame, or any other ignition sources.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: Eye irritant. SKIN ABSORPTION: May be fatal if absorbed through the skin. INGESTION or INHALATION: May be fatal if swallowed or inhaled. SIGNS OF ACUTE OVEREXPOSURE: Acute cholinesterase depression may be evidenced by headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, excessive sweating, salivation and tearing, constricted pupils, blurred vision, tightness in chest, weakness, muscle twitching and confusion. In extreme cases, unconsciousness, convulsions, severe respiratory depression and death may occur. SIGNS OF CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE: Repeated exposure to small doses of Dichlorvos and other organophosphates may lower the cholinesterase to levels where the above symptoms of acute overexposure are observed.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES EYES: Immediately hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if
present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
SKIN: Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. Call a poison
control center or doctor for treatment advice.
INGESTION: If swallowed, IMMEDIATELY call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice. Do not induce
vomiting unless told to do so by a poison control center or a doctor. Do not give any liquid to the person. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Page 1 of 5 INHALATION: Remove affected person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give artificial
respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth if possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for further treatment advice.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: This is an Organophosphate (OP) Insecticide. Do not wait for laboratory confirmation to
treat patients with strong clinical evidence of poisoning. IV Atropine sulfate is the antidote of choice against parasympathetic nervous stimulation. If there are signs of parasympathetic stimulation , Atropine Sulfate should be injected at 10 minute intervals in doses of 1 to 2 milligrams until complete atropinization has occurred. Pralidoxime chloride (2-PAM chloride) may also be used as an effective antidote in addition to and while maintaining full atropinization. In adults, an initial dose of 1 gram of 2-PAM should be injected, preferably as an infusion, in 250 cc of saline over a 15 to 20 minute period. If this is not practical, 2-PAM may be administered slowly by intravenous injection as a 5% solution in water over not less than 2 minutes. After an hour, a second dose of 1 gram of 2-PAM will be indicated if muscle weakness has not been relieved. For infants and children, the dose of 2-PAM is 0.25 grams. Avoid morphine, aminophylline, phenothiazine, reserpine, furosemide and ethacrynic acid. Clear chest by postural drainage. Oxygen administration may be necessary. Observe patient continuously for 48 hours. Repeated exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors may without warning cause prolonged susceptibility to very small doses of any cholinesterase inhibitor. Allow no further exposure until time for cholinesterase regeneration has been attained as determined by a blood test. Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate the use of gastric lavage.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FLASH POINT: 112° F TCC FLAMMABLE LIMITS: LEL: 1.9 UEL: 12.6 EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, carbon dioxide water fog or dry chemical. HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: This product is classified as Non-Combustible, however in the extreme
temperatures that fires may product, some of the constituents of this formula may decompose to give off such gases as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides.
EXPLOSION HAZARDS: With sufficient heat or burning, toxic vapors are emitted. Treat as flammable liquid. FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Treat as an oil fire. Use a full-faced self-contained breathing apparatus along with full
protective gear. Keep nearby containers and equipment cool with a water stream.
SENSITIVITY TO IMPACT: None ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES SMALL SPILL: Stop release, if possible without risk. Dike or contain release, if possible, and if immediate response can prevent further damage or danger. Isolate and control access to the release area. Take actions to reduce vapors. Absorb with appropriate absorbent. Clean spill area of residues and absorbent. LARGE SPILL: Stop release, if possible without risk. Dike or contain release, if possible, and if immediate response can
prevent further damage or danger. Isolate and control access to the release area. Take actions to reduce vapors. Collect product into drums, etc. via drains, pumps, etc. Absorb with appropriate absorbent. Clean spill area of residues and absorbent.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE GENERAL PROCEDURES: Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal. STORAGE: Store in a secure area preferably under lock and key. Storage area should be equipped to handle an accidental

La zone de haute turbulence actuelle, liée aux dettes d’états et plus particulièrement à la situation en Grèce, est plus préoccupante. C’est à nouveau tout notre système financier
