Never open battery caps with your face directly over the battery. Use baking soda or an approved cleaning agent to neutralize any spilled acid.
  • Never smoke in battery charging areas.
  • Keep tools and other metallic objects away from uncovered batteries.
  • Do not strike the sides of the battery with any tool that could produce a spark.
  • Have a dry-chemical fire extinguisher in charging areas or readily available.
  • Neutralize static buildup before touching a battery by contacting the nearest grounded surface.
Always handle batteries in a well ventilated area.
  • Never touch both battery terminals with your bare hands at the same time.
  • Remove rings, watches and dangling jewelry when working with or near batteries.
  • Only use insulated/non-conducting tools to remove cell caps. Never lay tools or other metal parts on top of a battery.
  • Exposed terminals, even on disconnected batteries, are an electrical shock hazard.
  • Ensure charger is turned off before connecting or disconnecting a battery to prevent arcing.
