Know of Nicotine Overdoes Sympotoms?

I searched here on Web MD & all I got was a bunch of cessation links. A friend of mine is mixing liquids for use in the electronic cigarette. Occasionally he gets the pure concentrated nicotine on his skin. The warning label on the bottle is insanely scary & declares that a single drop might cause death. Of course my friend uses gloves & is quick to use soap & water after contact but it concerns me after reading the bottle.

What are signs of overdoes? What are the measures to take in case something bad happens? (other than call 911)
