Dimethyl Fumarate (DMF) requires advance handling precautions in an occupational exposure setting.
IMPORTANT: Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is a severe dermal sensitizer and advance handling precautions need to be taken before handling this compound in an occupational exposure setting. In addition, dimethyl fumarate is known to sublimate (going from the solid to gaseous phase without turning into a liquid). This has implications for containment, respiratory protection and industrial hygiene monitoring. The majority of material safety data sheets (MSDS) or safety data sheets (SDS) are inadequate in warning of the hazards of dimethyl fumarate. This occupational exposure limit monograph contains the most current health and safety information regarding dimethyl fumarate.
In addition, this OEL Fastrac monograph also contains the acceptable daily exposure (ADE) value.
