About Forklift Batteries
Batteries pose a health threat in several ways.
Shear weight, batteries weigh as much as 3000lbs or more
Gases emitted during charging can be highly volatile
Corrosive chemicals include sulphuric acid
For these reasons, battery charging stations and the employees that work around them must be properly equipped and certain safety procedures implemented.
To protect workers from danger associated with the battery's weight, the batteries should only be removed and replaced from the forklifts using an appropriately equipped forklift or battery cart specifically designed for transporting batteries.
Batteries that are being removed or replaced should be securely placed and restrained in the cart or the forklift. Use the correct tools and follow proper procedures when moving batteries. This will ensure that the battery does not fall.
Batteries release oxygen and hydrogen gases when they are charging. This effect, called "gassing" is more noticeable if the battery is being overcharged. In the right concentrations, these gases can be highly explosive. Due to this "gassing" effect, charging stations should be located in well-ventilated areas to prevent concentrations of hydrogen and oxygen from reaching volatile levels. General or local ventilation can be provided by a fume hood or an exhaust fan. If an on-board charging system is used, the industrial truck itself should be parked in a location where there is adequate ventilation.
Sulfuric acid is a common and hazardous component in a battery. In the event of a battery acid spill, neutralizing agents should be spread on the spill. These cleanup materials should be on hand at all times. After the spill is neutralized, it can be safely cleaned up and disposed of in accordance with local ordinances. Only properly trained and authorized employees should perform an acid cleanup.
