4. Hazard Identification Chronic Effects on Health: Over exposure may cause skin, eye and upper respiratory
tract irritation or allergic reactions. Repeated over exposure to Lincomycin hydrochloride may cause abdominal cramps, diarrhoea and colitis. This may begin several weeks after exposure has ceased.
Health Effects Acute:
Repeated exposure may cause nausea, abdominal cramps, Diarrhoea and colitis, which may begin several weeks after exposure has ceased. Hyper sensitivity reactions have been reported in people known to be sensitive to penicillin.
Effects mucous membrane, causes soreness of mouth, nausea, diarrhoea
May be harmful to the eyes. Risk of irritation
Dust may irritate upper respiratory system and allergy.
5. First Aid measures
If poisoning occurs, contact doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone 131 126 Swallowed:
If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Wash clothing before re-use.
Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. In severe cases, obtain medical attention.
First Aid Facilities: Advice for Doctor:
Treat hypersensitivity reactions as indicated clinically. Lincomycin has been shown to have neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular-blocking agents. if an allergic reaction should occur, the usual agents (epinephrine, corticosteroids, antihistamines) should be used as indicated.
6. Precautions for Use
Dox-al Australia Pty. Ltd. exposure limit – TWA: 0.2 mg/M3
Ensure adequate ventilation (same as outdoors) when using. If handling industrial quantities, or if dust risk exists, consider local mechanical exhaust/extraction to keep airborne contamination as low as possible.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing dusts. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:
Equipment Normal Use:
Eye/face protection. Gloves - rubber or plastic.
Dust mask. Face shield or safety glasses. Gloves - rubber or plastic. Impervious overalls.
7. Handling and Storage
Correct Shipping Name:
Store below 25°C (Air Conditioning) in a cool dry place. Protect from light. Keep open packs tightly sealed.
8. Accidental release measures
Spills and Disposal:
Shake and empty contents into medicated water. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. Break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers below 500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose, clear of waterways, vegetation and roots. Empty containers should not be burned.
Not considered a fire hazard. May burn, or smoulder, in a fire. Not an explosion hazard.
Carbon dioxide, water vapour, black smoke, oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulphur, zinc oxide fume. Incomplete
combustion may generate carbon monoxide.
In case of small fire/explosion: Water fog or fine water spray, foam or Carbon Dioxide Danger of violent reaction or explosion:
Breathing apparatus and protective gloves for fire only.
Prevent dissolved spillages from entering drains, natural waters or the environment.
9. Fire fighting Measures Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full body protective equipment. May produce hazardous combustion products such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and sulphur, hydrochloric acid. Extinguish using water, carbon, dioxide or dry chemical powder.

13. Ecological Information
PERSISTENCE IN SOIL AND WATER Lincomycin hydrochloride can undergo hydrolysis at both acid and basic pH's at elevated temperatures. However, in the pH range 3-6 at room temperature degradation is small. Lincomycin bioactivity is readily degraded by mixtures or urine, faeces and soil. The half-life of degradation was about 20 days. BIODEGRADABILITY Lincomycin hydrochloride melts with decomposition at 148°C. It has no measurable vapour pressure; therefore it is not expected to enter the air. Lincomycin hydrochloride is very soluble in water (500-1000mg/ml) and undergoes hydrolysis at both acid and basic pH's at elevated temperatures. Lincomycin can be absorbed into soil, but it is readily leached away from soils. Lincomycin is expected to be relatively mobile and migrate toward the aquatic compartment. Lincomycin has a low octanol-water partition coefficient at all pH's. The octanol-water partition at pH 7 is 2.550. Calculated flowing and static bioaccumulation factors are 2.21 and 9.96, respectively. Lincomycin will be expected to migrate to the aqueous environment, but it should not bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.
Lincomycin will have some initial inhibitory effects on the most sensitive micro-organisms until it is degraded. Small amounts sent to sanitary sewage will not adversely affect the flora of sewage treatment facilities. 14. Disposal Considerations
- Shake and empty contents into medicated water. - Keep out of drains. - Prevent entry to surface water, groundwater and soil. - Vacuum-clean or scoop spilt material and place in a container. - Wash after handling and launder contaminated clothing before reuse. - Dispose of empty containers by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage. - Empty containers should not be burned. 15. Transport Information
No special transport requirements necessary. 16. Other Information
