The following must be worn when handling refrigerant:

In the event of refrigerant fluid coming into contact with the eyes, rinse well with clean water continuously for 15 minutes. If possible, have an eye rinse unit available.

If refrigerant comes into contact with your eyes, consult a doctor immediately. Inform the doctor that the burns were caused by R134A refrigerant.

In the event of contact with other unprotected parts of the body (event though the safety advice has been observed), rinse well with clean water continuously for 15 minutes.

IMPORTANT
