Working with Pyrophoric Reagents

Pyrophoric materials are extremely reactive to the presence of air, moisture, oxygen or water. Because of this, they have the tendency to ignite spontaneously when there's presence of oxygen and water. Without proper handling, these materials can result in fire or explosion leading to serious injuries or death.

As such, any personnel handling these materials must be fully equipped to understand the hazard and safety measures associated with handling the materials.
