· To avoid eye injury, eye protection is required 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, 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 serious
injury to personnel.
Eyes. Flush with cold water for no less than 15 minutes and
seek medical attention immediately.
Skin. Flush with large amounts of cold water until all acid is
removed. Seek medical attention as required.

amounts of water or milk. Follow with milk of magnesia, beaten
egg, or vegetable oil. Seek medical attention immediately.
Clothing/Equipment. Wash area with large amounts of cold
