I’ve worked quite a bit with cocobolo and other rosewoods with no problems except for Honduran rosewood. I don’t know what it is about Honduran rosewood but that is the only one that bothers me (so far).

I got in real trouble about 10 years ago when I sanded a jewelry box top without wearing a mask. I got terrible congestion in my lungs and a terrible rash on all exposed skin (especially my neck). I recall it was a hot day and this was before I had an air conditioned shop so the dust stuck to me.
