BATTERY BOX COVER REPLACEMENT.
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 ter-
minal, a direct short will result in instant heating,
damage to equipment, and injury to personnel.
Sulfuric acid contained in batteries can cause seri-
ous 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.
c. Internal. If corrosion or electrolyte is ingested, drink large
amounts of water or milk. Follow with milk of magnesia, beaten
egg, or vegetable oil. Seek medical attention immediately.
d. Clothing/Equipment. Wash area with large amounts of cold
water. Neutralize acid with baking soda or household ammonia.
