Human exposure should, therefore, be minimized by observing the general industry standards for occupational health and safety.
Precautions such as the following should be considered: dust masks or respirators and protective clothing should be worn; dust-arresting equipment and adequate ventilation should be utilized; personal hygiene should be observed; wash before eating or leaving a work site; be alert for signs of allergic reactions–seek prompt medical treatment if such reactions are suspected.Close
