What to do in the event of an exposure incident

  1. Wash/Flush Area. If exposure occurs on skin, wash the area for 15 minutes with soap and water. 
  2. If exposure occurs in eyes or on mucus membranes, flush the area for 15 minutes with water using the nearest eyewash station. If you are working out in the field then a bottled eyewash station (capable of delivering a 15 minute flush) must be available.
  3. Notify your supervisor, lab manager, and/or EH&S.
