Working with large batteries?
Do so safely at all times.
The right training and
equipment is essential.
Every year, at least 25 people are seriously injured when using batteries at work. If you or your staff work with large batteries, then you are responsible for safety - and with the increase in the numbers of electric vehicles used, there has never been a more important time to educate your organisation on the risks and dangers batteries can pose.
Batteries are used to store electrical energy. Many of the things we use every day rely on the instant power provided by batteries. However, the larger batteries found in workplaces can be dangerous and may explode if used incorrectly.
Injuries from batteries include serious chemical burns to the face, eyes and hands, and wounds from flying pieces of metal and plastic. Burns from metal objects that have become very hot or have exploded after short-circuiting the battery’s terminals occur frequently. Serious electric shocks and burns are common in accidents involving high-voltage battery packs.
