Premium Power from Premium Battery

  • Familiarize personnel with battery installation, charging and maintenance procedures. Display operating instructions visibly near the battery system. Restrict access to battery area, permitting trained personnel only, to reduce the possibility of injury.

  • Wear rubber apron, gloves and safety goggles (or face shield) when handling, installing, or working on batteries. This will help prevent injury due to splashing or spillage of sulfuric acid. Observe all accident prevention rules.

  • Prohibit smoking. Keep flames and sparks of all kinds away from the vicinity of storage batteries as liberated or entrapped hydrogen gas in the cells may be exploded, causing injury to personnel and/or damage to cells.

  • Wash all acid splashes in eyes or on skin with plenty of clean water and seek immediate medical assistance. Acid splashes on clothing should be washed out with water. Acid on skin or clothing should also be immediately neutralized with a solution of baking soda and water.

  • Explosion and fire risk. Avoid short circuits. Never place metal tools on top of cells, since sparks due to shorting across cell terminals may result in an explosion of hydrogen gas in or near the cells. Insulate tool handles to protect against shorting. Prior to making contact with the cell, discharge static electricity by touching a grounded surface.

  • Electrolyte is highly corrosive. Promptly neutralize and remove any electrolyte spilled when handling or installing cells. Use a baking soda/water solution (1 lb. per gallon of water) to prevent possible injury to personnel.

  • Batteries are extremely heavy. Exercise care when handling batteries. When lifting use appropriate mechanical equipment to safely handle batteries and avoid injury to personnel.

  • Dangerous voltage. Whenever possible, when making repairs to charging equipment and/or batteries, interrupt AC & DC circuits to reduce the possibility of injury to personnel and damage to system equipment. This is particularly import with high voltage systems (110 volts and above).
