Our easy-to-read signs that remind employees of workplace risks can help create a safer work environment—and reduce potential liability for your business.
Why are electrical and battery charging safety signs and labels important? The Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety explains that the two primary risks are from hydrogen gas formed when the battery is being charged and the sulfuric acid in the battery fluid. Recharging batteries generates hydrogen gas that’s explosive in certain concentrations in air, so adequate ventilation is essential to prevent an explosion. Also, no flame, burning cigarette, or other source of ignition should be permitted in the recharging area.*
However, many workers don’t recognize this hazard because battery recharging is such a common activity in many workplaces, making them more vulnerable to exposure and injury. Prominent OSHA and ANSI warnings can help protect your employees – and your business.
