10.1.2 Hazards Summary
The major hazards encountered in the use and handling of silver iodide stem from its toxicologic properties. Toxic by all routes (ie, inhalation, ingestion, and dermal contact), exposure to this odorless, light yellow, crystalline substance may occur from its use in seeding clouds for rain-making, as a photosensitive agent in photography, as a local antiseptic, and as a chemical intermediate. Effects from exposure may include skin rashes, conjunctivitis, argyria (a permanent ashen-gray discoloration of skin, conjunctiva, and internal organs), headache, fever, hypersensitivity, laryngitis, and bronchitis. Exposure should be minimized by engineering controls (eg, local exhaust ventilation, or process enclosure). In activities where over-exposure may occur, workers should wear impervious clothing, gloves, face protection, and a self-contained breathing apparatus. Such clothing and equipment should be removed before leaving the worksite. Skin that becomes contaminated with silver iodide should be promptly washed. Eating and smoking should be prohibited in silver iodide work areas. Silver iodide may form explosive compounds with sodium, potassium, acetylene, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide. Silver iodide should be stored in cool, dark areas, away from the above materials. Before shipping silver iodide, consult with the regulatory requirements of the US Department of Transportation. For small dry spills of silver iodide, collect the material and deposit in sealed containers for reclamation. Before implementing land disposal of silver iodide waste, consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance.
