In Case of Contamination

Should you become contaminated with formaldehyde, a quick drench shower and an eye wash station are available in your area.

If you splash formaldehyde solution on your face or in your eyes, use the eyewash station to wash your eyes and face with copious amounts of water, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids, until all formalin is removed (at least 15 minutes).

If your skin becomes contaminated, flush with water and soap for at least 15 minutes.

If your clothing becomes saturated with formalin, remove it as soon as feasibly possible, and place it in a sealed bag for decontamination.
