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. 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.
Sulfuric acid contained in batteries can cause 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 cause injury or death.
Always disconnect the negative (-) battery cable before servicing battery or positive (+) battery cable.
Failure to do so can result in damage to electrical system.
Do not allow battery cable ends to contact each other or roller. Failure to follow this caution may cause
damage to battery or electrical system.
