When handling a material that you believe or know to be toxic, you should always wear gloves, put on a mask, and ensure you are wearing comfortable clothing. You should also read any available handling instructions for the material before you handle it. Avoid moving too quickly when handling the material, and refrain from smoking or being near any source of fire.
Toxic materials are highly dangerous, so it is important that you handle them with care and follow any handling instructions that you can find. Failing to do so can have serious consequences, including chemical burns, accidental fire, sickness, serious injury, or even death. If you are inexperienced with handling toxic materials, then it is best that you do not attempt to handle it at all.
