SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

WARNING: Prolonged and repeated contact with used engine oil may cause skin cancer.
  • Avoid prolonged and repeated contact with oils, particularly used engine oils.
  • Wear protective clothing, including impervious gloves where practicable.
  • Do not put oily rags in pockets.
  • Avoid contaminating clothes, particularly underpants, with oil.
  • Heavily soiled clothing and oil-impregnated footwear should not be worn. Overalls must be cleaned regularly.
  • First Aid treatment should be obtained immediately for open cuts and wounds.
  • Use barrier creams, applying them before each work period, to help the removal of oil from the skin.
  • Wash with soap and water to ensure all oil is removed (skin cleansers and nail brushes will help). Preparations containing lanolin replace the natural skin oils which have been removed.
  • Do not use gasoline, kerosine, diesel fuel, gas oil, thinner or solvents for cleaning skin.
  • If skin disorders develop, obtain medical advice without delay.
  • Where practicable, degrease components prior to handling.
  • Where there is a risk of eye contact, eye protection should be worn, for example, chemical goggles or face shields; in addition an eye wash facility should be provided.

WARNING: Brake fluid may be irritating to the skin or eyes. In case of contact, take the following actions:
  • Eye Contact - rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
  • Skin Contact - wash skin with soap and water.
