Hazards and Protection.
Keep containers tightly closed in a well ventilated area away from food products. Keep away from heat and water.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear appropriate chemical protective gloves, boots and goggles. For temporary operations which produce dust or fume or when ventilation is not practicable, an air-line respirator should be worn. If ventilation is not satisfactory, dust and/or fume respirator can be used. The maintenance worker should wear protective clothing, personal protection equipment, including eye protection, and suitable respiratory protective equipment.
Any self contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece and operated in a pressure demand or other positive pressure mode or any supplied air respirator with a full facepiece and operated in a pressure demand or other positive pressure mode in combination with an auxiliary self contained breathing apparatus operated in pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary. Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water. Water spill: Add calcium hypochlorite (Ca(ClO)2). Neutralize with agricultural lime (CaO), crushed limestone (CaCO3), or sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3). Adjust pH to neutral (pH=7). Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Reacts as bases to neutralize acids.
Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.)
Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.
Containers may explode when heated.
Toxic oxides of nitrogen may form in fire.
NIOSH REL: TWA 0.05 mg/m3 (as Co) OSHA PEL: TWA 0.1 mg/m3 (as Co) 20 mg/m3 (as Co)
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.
Contact may cause burns.
The possible benefit of early removal of some ingested material by cautious gastric lavage must be weighed against potential complications of bleeding or perforation. Activated charcoal activated charcoal binds most toxic agents and can decrease their systemic absorption if administered soon after ingestion. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
Flush with water for at least 15 minutes.
