PERSONAL PROTECTION EYE • Safety glasses. • Safety glasses with side shields. • Chemical goggles. • Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A
written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for eachworkplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class ofchemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained intheir removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begineye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at thefirst signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workershave washed hands thoroughly.

Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
FLUTRIAFOL:■ Toxic to aquatic organisms. Triazole fungicides share common metabolites, the triazole compounds 1,2,4-triazole (free triazole), triazolealanine, and triazole acetic acid,
In environmental fate studies, all three forms of triazole (1,2,4-T, TA,
and TAA) have been found and there is evidence that the three can inter-convert in soil and aquatic systemsAs a plant metabolite, and given the wide use of triazole-derivative pesticides (used as fungicides on manycrops as well as on turf) free triazole is found in a variety of food commodities, including animalbyproducts. 1,2,4-triazole appears to be relatively stable in the environment, and may be found in rotationalcrops as well as in water. Studies indicate that 1,2,4-triazole affects the central and peripheral nervous systems, reproductive tissuesof both sexes, and the hematological system. Developmental and reproductive effects have been noted for thiscompound. Based on the available metabolism data from rats and livestock, 1,2,4-triazole may form in humansfollowing exposure to parent triazole compounds. The available studies on triazole conjugates found developmental skeletal effects, decreased body weight andbody weight gain, and decreased leukocytes and triglycerides following exposure in animals. For azole-containing substances. Azole fungicides and systemically used antifungal drugs directly interfere with steroidogenesis by acting aspotent inhibitors of steroidogenic enzymes and are known to cause endocrine disruption mainly via thismechanism.
An important P450 enzyme involved in the steroidogenesis is aromatase. Aromatase demethylates C10 andspecifically converts androstenedione and testosterone. On the protein level, the amino acid sequencehomology between aromatase from fish and humans is about 50% and between rats and humans is about 78% .Inmammals, aromatase is mainly expressed in the brain and the gonads, but it is also found in placental,adipose, and bone tissue . The physiologic balance between different sex steroid hormones is crucial for thedevelopment, maintenance, and function of the reproductive system as well as for the differentiation of thesexual phenotype during ontogeny. Oestrogens (estrone and estradiol) are products of the androgens(androstenedione and testosterone), and the reaction is catalysed by aromatase. In mammals, differentiationof the male phenotype depends not only on testosterone but also on estradiol generated from testosterone byneuronal aromatase in central nervous system. Therefore, disturbances in aromatase expression and/or changesin its catalytic activity are expected to exhibit negative effects on reproduction parameters
Azole-containing compounds produce profound effects in the environment. In part this is due to inhibition ofseveral enzyme systems including those involving sterol 14[alpha]-demethylase. Sterol 14[alpha]-demethylaseis a member of the superfamily of haeme-containing cytochrome P450 enzymes involved in metabolism ofendogenous and xenobiotic substances. The antifungal effect of azoles is due to inhibition of sterol14[alpha]-demethylase in fungi and yeast, thereby blocking the biosynthesis of ergosterol The subsequent lackof ergosterol is detrimental because ergosterol is an essential sterol component in the membranes of fungiand yeast. Sterol 14[alpha]-demethylase is not only expressed in fungi and yeast but is also found in manyother species ranging from bacteria to mammals. In plants, the sterol 14[alpha]-demethylase reactionmetabolises obtusifoliol and provides precursors for biosynthesis of phytosterols. In animals, the sterol14[alpha]-demethylase reaction is part of the metabolic pathway leading to biosynthesis of cholesterol. Cholesterol in turn is the substrate for the production of many other sterols (e.g., the sex steroidhormones).
The DNA sequences encoding sterol 14[alpha]-demethylase of many fungi and yeast are known, as well as thesequences of mice, rats, pigs, and humans . On the protein level, the amino acid sequences are highlyconserved along the phylogenetic tree. This fact is considered by many authors as an indication of thepivotal role of sterol 14[alpha]-demethylase in all organisms. The homology of the amino acid sequence level
