Isolate high-voltage systems in alternative fuel vehicles

Control Measure Knowledge

Personnel should isolate high-voltage systems to reduce the risk of accidental activation or electrocution.

Information sources such as the driver, manufacturer’s guidance or information stored on mobile data terminals may assist in identifying the appropriate method of isolating an alternative fuel vehicle (AFV), such as using an emergency shut-off.

Some alternative fuel vehicles have sensors in the engine compartment that will automatically isolate the high-voltage supply in a collision.
