Strong oxidizing agents.
Toxic and hazardous fumes of cobalt and oxides of carbon.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.

Toxic cobalt oxide fumes may form in fire.
IDHL: 20 mg/m3
Administration of cobalt chloride to pregnant rats in doses up to 100 mg/kg/day did not produce teratogenicity or fetotoxicity. <br>CASE REPORT - A 31-year-old woman with severe cobalt-induced pulmonary fibrosis delivered a normal full term infant. Throughout the pregnancy, supplemental oxygen was required during exercise due to deterioration of respiratory capacity. Inhalation exposureor respiratory disease is present.
Ingestion or inhalation of cobalt causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and colicky abdominal pain.
An interstitial fibrotic pulmonary process has been described among hard metal workers and diamond polishers.
May cause irritation.
May cause severe irritation and possible corneal damage.
Give large amounts of water; induce vomiting.
Move to fresh air; if breathing has stopped, begin artificial respiration.
Wash with soap and water.
