As when handling any chemical substance, care must be taken when working with or handling Butanone.  Butanone presents a number of potential hazards to the user and should only be handled by competent persons.  Butanone must be kept away from children and animals.  Butanone should be stored in its original container, tightly sealed and away from sources of ignition, sparks and flames.  Butanone is classified as ‘Flammable’ and will react with oxidising materials.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should always be worn when handling Butanone including approved eye protection, safety overalls, safety footwear and compatible safety gloves.  Butanone should always be handled in a well-ventilated area and breathing apparatus should be used when handling large quantities.
