DEPC or DMPC?

I don't remember where but I read that DMPC (dimethylpyrocarbonate) is
safer to use than DEPC to inhibit RNase. I mean safer for health. But
does any one know if it is safe for RNA experiments to use DMPC-treated
solutions?  In particular, is autoclave a good way to get rid of it as
it is for DEPC? 
Thanks for any help.
