First Aid Facilities
Ensure eyewash and shower facilities are available.
Medical attention Local contamination: Treatment should be symptomatic after decontamination. In case of skin or eye contamination, treat as above under First Aid Measures. Systemic poisoning: There is no specific antidote. Treat symptoms. An aqueous suspension of activated charcoal may be administered to absorb remaining toxicant.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Water spray, foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, sand
In a fire, formation of hydrogen chloride, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen fluoride, carbon
combustion products monoxide and nitrogen oxides can be expected. Precautions for fire
Fire fighters should wear full protective gear, including self-contained breathing apparatus
(AS/NZS 1715/1716). Keep unnecessary people away. If it can be done safely, remove intact containers from the fire. Bund area with sand or earth to prevent contamination of drains or waterways. Dispose of extinguishing agent and spil age safely later.

Chronic: NOHSC has classified tebuconazole as having a possible risk of harm to the unborn child, but as Raxil T Dry Seed Dressing contains less than 5% tebuconazole, it is not classified as hazardous on this basis. Tebuconazole was not mutagenic or genotoxic in a battery of in vitro and in vivo mutagenicity studies. Triflumuron had no mutagenic activity in various in vitro and in vivo tests. 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Raxil T Dry Seed Dressing is harmful to fish and aquatic arthropods. DO NOT feed treated seed or otherwise expose to wildlife or domestic birds. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers, or waterways with the chemical, used containers, treated seed or bags which have held treated seed. Ecotoxicity
