SECTION3: SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES, PROTECTION, ELECTRICAL SAFETY, HEALTH HAZARD DATA
 
SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
ACTION TAKEN FOR THE LEAKAGE OR SPILLS
If sulfuric acid is spilled from a battery, neutralize the acid with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), sodium carbon (soda ash), or calcium oxide (lime).
Flush the area with water discard to the sewage systems. Do not allow acid into the sewage system before it is neutralized.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD:
Neutralized acid may be flushed down the sewer. Used batteries must be treated as hazardous waste and disposed of according to local policy and National Laws. A copy of this material safety data must be supplied to any scrap dealer .
 
PROTECTION
EXPOSURE
PROTECTION
COMMENTS
SKIN
Rubber gloves, Apron
Protective equipment must be worn if battery is cracked or otherwise damaged.
RESPIRATORY
Respirator (for lead)
A respirator should be worn during reclaim operations if the TLV exceeded.
EYES
Safety goggles, Face Shield
 
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Due to the battery's low internal resistance and high power density. High levels of short circuit can be developed across the battery terminals. Do not put tools or cables on the battery. Use insulated tools only. Strictly follow all the instruction for installation and diagrams when installing or maintaining battery systems..
 
HEALTH HAZARD DATA
LEAD: The toxic effects of lead are accumulative and slow to appear. It affects the kidneys, reproductive, and central nervous system.
The symptoms of lead overexposure are anemia, vomiting, headache, stomach pain (lead colic), dizziness, loss of appetite, and muscle and joint pain. Exposure to lead from a battery most often occurs during lead reclaim operations through the breathing or ingestion of lead dusts and fumes.
SULFURIC ACID: Sulfuric acid is a strong corrosive. Contact with acid can cause severe burns on the skin and in the eyes.
Ingestion of sulfuric acid will cause GI tract burns. Acid can be release if the battery case is damaged or if the vents are tampered with.
FIBERGLASS SEPARATOR: Fibrous glass is an irritant of the upper respiratory tract, skin and eyes. Please use the relative protection gears if necessary.
 
SECTION4: Transportation information
Acceptable modes of transportation: air, rail, road and water.
Batteries must be protected so as to prevent short circuit and must be securely packed and marked on the container "Non-Spillable"
