Emergency treatment method of potassium hydroxide
1. Leakage emergency treatment
Isolate the leakage pollution area, set warning signs around it, and suggest that emergency treatment personnel wear gas masks and chemical protective clothing. Do not directly contact the leakage, collect it in a dry and clean container with a clean shovel, add a large amount of water in a small amount, or add carbon dioxide or weak acid, adjust it to neutral, and then put it into the wastewater system. It can also be washed with a large amount of water, or filled with carbon dioxide or weak acid, and the diluted washing water is put into the wastewater system. If there is a large amount of leakage, it shall be collected and recycled or discarded after harmless treatment.
2. Protective measures
Respiratory protection: wear gas masks if necessary.
Eye protection: wear chemical protective glasses.
Protective clothing: wear work clothes (made of anti-corrosion materials).
Hand protection: wear rubber gloves (synthetic rubber).
Others: shower and change clothes after work. Pay attention to personal hygiene.
3. First aid measures
Skin contact: immediately rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. If possible, clean the wound with weak acid (such as acetic acid and boric acid). In case of burns, seek medical attention.
Eye contact: lift the eyelids immediately and rinse with flowing water or normal saline for at least 15 minutes. Or rinse with 3% boric acid solution. See a doctor.
Inhalation: quickly leave the site to a place with fresh air. Artificial respiration if necessary. See a doctor.
Ingestion: when the patient is awake, rinse his mouth immediately, take orally diluted vinegar or lemon juice, and seek medical attention. Fire extinguishing method: fog water, sand and carbon dioxide.
Potassium hydroxide emergency treatment
Isolate the leakage contaminated area and restrict access. It is recommended that emergency treatment personnel wear dust masks and gas suits. Do not let the leakage come into contact with reducing agent, inflammable or metal powder. Do not touch the leakage directly. Small leakage: collect it in a dry, clean and covered container with a clean shovel. Massive leakage: collect, recycle or transport to waste disposal site for disposal.
