Section Eight - Exposure Controls Data
Now you find yourself with a can of Tcat's Unreal Kleen in your hand, aimed at the patch panel, finger on the button spray button, etc. When unexpectedly you start having thoughts about the last few sections [and that your boss, has already tried to place you in an over-exposed situation before]. Well, you are at the right section. This section explains how to use the product with the minimal amount of exposure or risk. It is a lot like that other activity; you know the one that the health profession has been telling us to be safe when engaging in. You have to engage in this activity when you know it is safe or use some sort of protection. So, in the eighth's section you will find out when is considered safe and/or what protection you need.
On the nasty scale (range of 1 to 10), Tcat's Unreal Kleen really is not that bad, it might be as high as a four, but more likely it is a three, maybe as low as a two. You probably already have and almost certainly will have the opportunity to handle more far hazardous substances then anything Tcat' Unreal Kleen may conjurer up in his kitchen sink (oops, I mean that his professionally staffed and fully equipped chemical research laboratory could create). Follow a few easy guidelines and you should not have any problems. Nevertheless, this does not mean that the potential is absent.
First off, if this product is used in manner of normal usage in open area that has good ventilation, concentration levels should remain low. However, if you are in the enclosed space such as a telephone closet, it may not take many squirts from the can for a concentration level to rise to an unacceptable, hazardous level.
Notice I used the term "enclosed space"and not "confined space"as indicted in the MSDSs. There is major difference between the two. A confined space is an enclosed space where the access to and from is limited or restricted. The telephone closet with normal door that you can walk is an enclosed space. The same telephone closet with two-foot by three-foot access panel instead of a door becomes a confined space. Chemical hazards usually will escalate when used in a confined space. Remember the example of being up on a ladder, well having an adverse effect in most confined spaces may be just as bad, many times worst.
