To avoid injury, eye protection and acid-resistant gloves must be worn when working
around batteries. DO NOT smoke, use open flame, make sparks, or create other ignition
sources around batteries. If a battery is giving off gases, it can explode and cause injury to
personnel. Remove all jewelry such as rings, ID tags, watches, and bracelets. If jewelry or
a tool contacts a battery terminal, a direct short will result in instant heating or electric
shock, damage to equipment, and injury to personnel.
Sulfuric acid contained in batteries can cause serious burns. If battery corrosion or
electrolyte makes contact with skin, eyes, or clothing, take immediate action to stop the
corrosive burning effects. Failure to follow these procedures may result in death or injury
