Health Effects

Precautionary Measures When Handling

First Aid Procedures

Eye Contact Immediately flush with lots of water for at least 15 minutes.  Obtain medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact Immediately flush with lots of water.  Remove contaminated clothing.  Obtain medial attention immediately.  Used clothing should be disposed of properly or washed before reusing.
Inhalation Remove to fresh air.  If not breathing give artifical respiration.  Give oxygen if breathing is difficult.  Obtain medical attention immediately.

Emergency Procedures

Spill or Leak Shovel the bulk of the material into a steel drum.  Sweep up the remaining material.  Wash down the area of the spill.  Wash water should be contained and disposed of properly. 

Personnel Protection Measures

Eye Protection Wear chemical goggles and have an eye wash station available.
Skin Protection Wear chemical resistant gloves and clothing to protect exposed skin.  Disposable clothing is preferable to cleaning and reusing clothing.
Respiratory Protection Avoid breathing dust.  Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respiratory protection equipment.
Ventilation Provide natural or mechanical ventilation to control exposure levels.

Disposal Methods

Waste or used catalyst should be disposed of in an approved chemical landfill in accordance with all applicable local, provincial, state and federal laws and regulations.  Metal reclaimers are available to recover vanadium pentoxide V2O5 from waste material.
