If it is impracticable to keep persons away, sandbag or cover the radioactive material with at least 4 inches (100 millimeters) of earth or sand, using a longhandled shovel. Remain near the material only as long as is necessary to accomplish work. 3.

BULKSHIPMENTS Phosphorus and sodium are two major materials classed as flammable solids that are shipped in bulk. Exposure of phosphorus to air will result in ignition of the phosphorus. If a tank containing phosphorus is opened in an accident, fire will occur. This fire should be fought with dirt or sand, preferably wet. The phosphorus should be contained by dikes so located that the burning phosphorus will not excessively heat the tank. If the tank is exposed to the heat of burning phosphorus for extended periods, violent rupture is possible but not likely.

The vapor of most flammable liquids is heavier than air and forms a layer along the ground which mixes slowly with the air. The mixing with air is increased by wind. The vapor flows along the ground following the slope of the ground and settles in low places sheltered from the wind. It will not drift or flow against the wind but may travel a considerable distance with the wind. Vapors can be dispersed by spraying with water as a fog. See ASTM F 1127. 5. Do not permit liquid to drain into sewers, since vapor arising from the liquid may ignite at some point far distant from the leak and cause serious damage to life or property.
