Canadian Mercury Regulations
Mercury is a silver colored liquid which is contained in UV lamps. Under normal operating conditions mercury presents no hazard as it is contained in the quartz tube of the lamp. Mercury is toxic and must not be consumed or handled directly on the skin. It is recommended that protective gloves and eye protection is worn when handling UV lamps.
In the event of accidental breakage of the lamp and mercury spillage:
- Use personal protective equipment to protect the eyes and skin, and prevent ingestion and inhalation.
- Contain the spill with wet sand and clean it up with a dustpan and brush. Do not use a vacuum cleaner, as it will become contaminated and be a source of mercury vapor.
- Spread a 50/50 mix of calcium hydroxide and sulphur over the affected area and allow to dry. Repeat until there is no visible trace of mercury. Special attention should be given to cracks and imperfections in the affected surface.
- Eyes — Flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the eyelids. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
- Skin — Flush with plenty of soap and water for 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothes and shoes. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
- Ingestion — OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
- Inhalation — OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.
