TOXIC EXPLOSIVES

General comments Wear suitable protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
Even short inhalation of small quantities of gas can cause breathing difficulties or lead to severe poisoning.
Avoid all sources of ignition (e.g. naked lights, unprotected light bulbs, electric handtools). Electrostatic hazard: Electric charge may ignite ammunition. Keep spilled material away from generators of static electricity (e.g. mobile phones, friction of synthetic polymers like PVC gloves). Wear non-sparking footwear.
Particular attention should be taken in order to prevent developing gases drifting into occupied areas of the ship, e.g. living quarters, machinery, working areas.
Keep bridge and living quarters upwind. Otherwise, protect crew and living quarters against gases by using water spray to drive gases away (water curtain).
