Dry Ice Safety

Important Handling for Dry Ice Safety:

• Do not handle with bare hands. Use cotton gloves or towels when handling dry ice.
Dry ice is -109º F and can cause injury similar to a burn.

• Store dry ice in an insulated container, but not in an airtight container.  Airtight
containers may explode as dry ice converts to CO2 gas.

• Do not enter confined areas where dry ice is used, or stored, until adequately
ventilated.

• Use dry ice in a well-ventilated area.  When dry ice sublimates, it gives off CO2 and
can cause suffocation.  Do not store where people sleep.

• Children should be supervised when using dry ice.  Dry ice is harmful if eaten or
swallowed.  Do not ingest.

Dry ice is a Hazard Class 9 Substance.  It is not classified as a dangerous substance or as a hazardous material by the United States Department of Transportation for ground transportation.  However, when shipped by air or water, it is regulated as a dangerous good.
