Dust inhalation may cause respiratory irritation.
Some animal tests suggest carcinogenic potential after long term exposure but are not considered relevant to normal use. These emphasise the need for careful handling.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Give water to drink. If vomiting occurs give more water to drink. Seek medical advice.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. See a doctor immediately.
