Storage and Handling :
 
Sodium Nitrate is hygroscopic. It should be stored in a cool & dry place. Use personal protective equipment to avoid skin contact. Effects of over exposure & acute poisoning may occur with contamination of food & water. Nitrates are converted into Nitrites by reduction in human system, promoting the formation of methaemogobin. Symptoms of Nitrite will occur as Homeopathic injuries & drop in blood pressure.
   
Eye / Skin contact :
 

In the event of eye/skin contact occuring, immediately rinse with copious quantities of clean water, holding the eye open. If necessary, obtain medical attention.
