Signed and symptoms: Irritation as noted above.
Aggravated Medical Conditions: Preexisting skin and respiratory disorders may be aggravated by exposure to this product.
Other Health Effects: The international agency for research on cancer has determined there is sufficient evidence for the carcinogenicity on experimental animals of used motor (crankcase) oil. Handling procedures and safety precautions in the MSDS should be followed to minimize employee’s exposure to the product if used as a lubricating oil in a gasoline combustion engine.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Eye Contact – Flush with water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Get Medical attention.

Inhalation – Remove victim to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. Get medical attention.
Ingestion - Do Not induce vomiting. In general no treatment is necessary unless large quantities of product are ingested. However, get medical attention.
Note to Physician – In general, Emesis Induction is unnecessary in high viscosity, low volatility products, I.E., most oils and greases.
7. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
Spill or Leak Precautions:
May burn although not readily ignitable. Use cautious judgement when cleaning up large spills. ***Large Spills*** Wear respirator and protective clothing as appropriate. Shut off source of leak. If safe to do so, dike and contain. Remove with vacuum trucks or pump to storage salvage vessels. Soak up residue with an absorbent such as clay, sand, or other suitable materials; dispose of properly. Flush are with water to remove trace residue. ***Small Spills*** Take up with an absorbent material and dispose of properly.
Waste Disposal: Place in an appropriate disposal facility in compliance with local regulations.
This product is classified as an oil under section 311 of the Clean Water Act. Spills entering (A) surface waters of (B) any water courses or sewers entering/leading to surface waters that cause a sheen must be reported to the nearest local Environmental Protection Agency Office.
8. CONTROL MEASURES
Minimize skin contact. Wash with soap and water before eating, drinking, smoking or using toilet facilities. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse, properly dispose of contaminated leather articles, including shoes that cannot be decontaminated.
Store in a cool dry place with adequate ventilation. Keep away form open flames and high temperatures.
If exposure may or does exceed occupational exposure limits (Section 2) use NIOSH-Approved respirator to prevent overexposure. In accord with 29 DFR 1910.134 use either an atmosphere-supplying respirator or an air-purifying respirator for organic vapors and particulate.
Wear chemical resistant gloves and other protective clothing as required to minimize skin contact. Wear safety goggles to avoid eye contact. Test data from published literature and/or glove and clothing manufacturers indicate the best protection is provided by nitrile gloves.
