Use safe work practices to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation. Observe good personal hygiene. Prohibit eating,drinking and smoking in contaminated areas. Wash hands before eating. Remove contaminated clothing andprotective equipment before entering eating areas.
Store in cool, dry, well ventilated area, removed from oxidising agents and heat sources. Ensure containers areadequately labelled, protected from physical damage and sealed when not in use. Check regularly for leaks or spills. 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION Ventilation
Do not inhale dust/ powder. Use with adequate natural ventilation. Use appropriate safe work practices to reducedust levels (ie. keep moist). Exposure Standards
ES-TWA : 1 mg/m3 Some hardwoods/5mg/m3 Softwoods
Wear leather or rubber gloves. Where an inhalation risk exists, wear a Class P1 (Particulate) Respirator. At high dustlevels, wear dust-proof goggles or safety glasses. Individuals with sensitive skin should consider wearing coveralls. 9.

Low toxicity. This product presents a low risk with normal use, however it may contain living organisms (bacteria,
fungi, protozoa) which may be harmful if inhaled, with prolonged skin contact, or if accidentally ingested. Individualswith impaired immune systems should avoid exposure. Potential skin and respiratory sensitiser. Personnel workingwith these products in an occupational situation should ensure their tetanus immunisation is up to date.
Low to moderate irritant. Exposure may result in irritation, pain and redness. Inhalation
Inhalation of dust or mist may cause irritation of the nose and throat and possible sensitisation (with asthma-likesymptoms). Has the potential to cause Legionnaire's disease, although this effect is rare.Legionnaire's disease is asevere, often fatal disease characterised by pneumonia, dry cough, muscular pain and sometimes gastrointestinalsymptoms. There may be organ dysfunction and eventual cardiovascular collapse.
Low irritant. Prolonged and repeated contact may result in irritation, dermatitis and sensitisation. Ingestion
Low toxicity. With large doses ingestion may result in nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal irritation. May increasethe likelihood of developing gastrointestinal infections. 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Environment
Fertilisers/plant nutrients may be beneficial to plants at low levels, however high levels may cause reduced growth orburns in sensitive species. Excess may be washed through soil to waterways. Fertilisers released to waterways maycause algal blooms, with potential for toxic effects on aquatic organisms. 13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Reuse or recycle where possible. Alternatively, ensure product is covered with moist soil to prevent dust generation
and dispose of to an approved landfill site. Contact the manufacturer for additional information. Legislation
Dispose of in accordance with relevant local legislation. 14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION Transport
Not classified as a Dangerous Good according to the Australian Code for the transport of Dangerous Goods by Roadand Rail. UN Number Subsidiary Packing Group Hazchem Code 15. REGULATORY INFORMATION
A poison schedule number has not been allocated to this product using the criteria in the Standard for the Uniform
Scheduling of Drugs and Poisons (SUSDP). 16. OTHER INFORMATION Additional
The compost in this product is described as mushroom compost. Information
EXPOSURE STANDARDS - TIME WEIGHTED AVERAGES: Exposure standards are established on the premise ofan 8 hour work period of normal intensity, under normal climatic conditions and where a 16 hour break between

shifts exists to enable the body to eliminate absorbed contaminants. In the following circumstances, exposurestandards must be reduced: strenuous work conditions; hot, humid climates; high altitude conditions; extended shifts(which increase the exposure period and shorten the period of recuperation).
RESPIRATORS: In general the use of respirators should be limited and engineering controls employed to avoidexposure. If respiratory equipment must be worn ensure correct respirator selection and training is undertaken. Remember that some respirators may be extremely uncomfortable when used for long periods. The use of airpowered or air supplied respirators should be considered where prolonged or repeated use is necessary.
ABBREVIATIONS:mg/m3 - Milligrams per cubic metreppm - Parts Per MillionTWA/ES - Time Weighted Average or Exposure Standard. pH - relates to hydrogen ion concentration - this value will relate to a scale of 0 - 14, where 0 is highly acidic and 14is highly alkaline.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT GUIDELINES:The recommendation for protective equipment contained within this Chem Alert report is provided as a guide only. Factors such as method of application, working environment, quantity used, product concentration and theavailability of engineering controls should be considered before final selection of personal protective equipment ismade. Information provided by Risk Management Technologies is summarised for ease of use. Additional technicalinformation is available by calling +61 8 9322 1711.
HEALTH EFFECTS FROM EXPOSURE:It should be noted that the effects from exposure to this product will depend on several factors including: frequencyand duration of use; quantity used; effectiveness of control measures; protective equipment used and method ofapplication. Given that it is impractical to prepare a Chem Alert report which would encompass all possiblescenarios, it is anticipated that users will assess the risks and apply control methods where appropriate. COLOUR RATING SYSTEM: Chem Alert reports are assigned a colour rating of Green, Amber or Red for thepurpose of providing users with a quick and easy means of determining the hazardous nature of a product. Safehandling recommendations are provided in all Chem Alert reports so as to clearly identify how users can control thehazards and thereby reduce the risk (or likelihood) of adverse effects. As a general guideline a Green colour ratingindicates a low hazard, an Amber colour rating indicates a moderate hazard and a Red colour rating indicates a highhazard. Reviewed Date Printed Report Status
Chem Alert reports are compiled as an independent source of information by RMT's scientific department, based onthe latest chemical and toxicological research and, where appropriate, in compliance with relevant standards,guidance notes and legislation. Where available the manufacturer's original MSDS is also provided to Chem Alertsubscribers as a scanned image for their convenience. In many instances Chem Alert reports are compiled onbehalf of manufacturers in which case they serve as the "Manufacturer's MSDS" and are clearly identifed as such onthe relevant reports. Prepared By
