Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Caution: Avoid prolonged or repeated skin contact with used motor oil. Used motor oil has caused skin cancer in laboratory animals. Thoroughly wash exposed areas with soap and water.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Primary Route(s) of Entry
Inhalation, Skin absorption, Skin contact, Eye contact, Ingestion.
Potential Health Effects
May cause mild eye irritation.
May cause mild skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact may dry and crack the skin. Additional symptoms of skin contact may include: acne. Passage of this material into the body through the skin is possible, but it is unlikely that this would result in harmful effects during safe handling and use.
Swallowing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Swallowing large amounts may be harmful.
It is possible to breathe this material under certain conditions of handling and use (for example, during heating, spraying, or stirring). Breathing small amounts of this material during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects. Symptoms usually occur at air concentrations higher than the recommended exposure limits.
Symptoms of Exposure
Signs and symptoms of exposure to this material through breathing, swallowing, and/or passage of the material through the skin may include: stomach or intestinal upset (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) irritation (nose, throat, airways), blood abnormalities (breakage of red blood cells), liver damage.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
This material is not listed as a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the National Toxicology Program, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Used motor oil has been shown to cause skin cancer in laboratory animals continually exposed by repeated applications. Avoid prolonged or repeated skin contact.
First Aid: From MSDS
If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into
fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water while holding eyelids
apart. If symptoms persist or there is any visual difficulty,
seek medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and
water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder
clothing before reuse.
Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious,
do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side
with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or
poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting.
If possible, do not leave individual unattended.
If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into
fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If
breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and
quiet; seek immediate medical attention.
Note to Physicians
Acute aspiration of large amounts of oil-laden material may
produce a serious aspiration pneumonia. Patients who aspirate
these oils should be followed for the development of long-term
sequelae. Repeated aspiration of small quantities of mineral oil
can produce chronic inflammation of the lungs (i.e. lipoid
pneumonia) that may progress to pulmonary fibrosis. Symptoms are
often subtle and radiological changes appear worse than clinical
abnormalities. Occasionally, persistent cough, irritation of the
upper respiratory tract, shortness of breath with exertion, fever,
and bloody sputum occur. Inhalation exposure to oil mists below
current workplace exposure limits is unlikely to cause pulmonary
abnormalities. Preexisting disorders of the following organs ( or
organ systems) may be aggravated by exposure to this material:
Health Rating: 1.
Flammability Rating: 1
Reactivity Rating: 0
HMIS Rating Scale: 0 = Minimal; 1 = Slight; 2 = Moderate; 3 = Serious; 4 = Severe; 
N = No information provided by manufacturer; * = Chronic Health Hazard
