Identify presence and type of rechargeable batteries

Control Measure Knowledge

The presence of rechargeable batteries may not always be clear. Personnel should look for signs, labels or other indicators, such as heavy duty orange cabling or sources of renewable energy including solar panels, electric motors or wind turbines.

Personnel should gather information from responsible persons or Site-Specific Risk Information (SSRI) about the type, location and quantity of rechargeable batteries present, fixed installation systems and isolation points.

Early identification can reduce the risks associated with rechargeable batteries. For information about the identification of batteries in vehicles refer to Hazard – Roadways: Alternative Fuel Vehicles
