It is extremely important to be cautious while handling a battery, as it can cause several hazards. Some of the possible risks are mentioned below to direct motorists to handle car batteries with utmost care:
Batteries generate explosive gases during vehicle operation and also when charged separately. Flames, sparks, burning cigarettes or other inflammable sources that may start a fire must be kept away at all times.
Always shield eyes when working with batteries, as sparks, acid splurge etc. may hurt the eyes.
When charging batteries, work in a well-ventilated area - never in closed spaces.
Always turn battery charger or ignition off before disconnecting a battery.
Used batteries must be handled with care to avoid hazardous lead poisoning which can severely harm the environment and the people around. Avoid smelting the batteries in open furnaces, by unauthorised smelters, as this can result in scrap lead particles escaping into the air. This can infect humans and pollute the environment.
