Green Highlighted Entries in Blue Pages

For entries highlighted in green follow these steps:

  • If there is no fire:
    • Go directly to Table 1 (green bordered pages)
    • Look up the ID number and name of material
    • Identify initial isolation and protective action distances
  • if a fire is involved:
    • Also consult the assigned orange guide
    • If applicable, apply the evacuation information shown under Public Safety

NOTE 1: If the name in Table 1 is shown with "(when spilled in water)", these materials produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) (PIH in the US) gases when spilled in water. Some Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves (e.g., Bromine trifluoride (UN1746), Thionyl chloride (UN1836), etc.). In these instances, two entries are provided in Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills. If the Water Reactive material is not a TIH and this material is not spilled in water, Table 1 and Table 2 do NOT apply and safety distances will be found within the appropriate orange guide.

NOTE 2: Explosives are not individually listed by their name because in an emergency situation, the response will be based only on the division of the explosive, not on the individual explosive.

For divisions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.5, refer to Guide 112.

For divisions 1.4 and 1.6, refer to Guide 114.
