Hydrogen Fluoride and Hydrofluoric Acid references and policies
HF is life/death serious, even in small quantities when not extremely concentrated. Pay very close attention, and always HAVE ALL APPROPRIATE FIRST AID SUPPLIES (fresh) at hand.
1 - 8 are required reading for approval of HF use, and are covered on the test. The last one, #9, provides technical information for which few will have any need or use, but you must know of its existence and where it can be found.
