HAZARDS

Methanol is a flammable liquid, and precautions against sources of ignition must be taken. Inhalation of concentrated vapor may irritate repiratory tract and produce narcosis. Contact with liquid irritates eyes, causes drying of skin. Absorbtion from prolonged skin contact produces toxic effects. Swallowing causes dizziness, headache, acidosis, visual disturbances and damage and possible death. If inhaled, move to fresh air, give artificial respiration or oxygen, if breathing is difficult. In case of contact, flush eyes or skin with plenty of water. If swallowed, induce vomitting (if conscious) by giving tablespoon of salt in glass or warm water. Repeat until vomit is clear. CALL A PHYSICIAN.
