We’re sure you’ve seen how airlines now handle lithium ion batteries. But did you know battery fires can easily happen in your warehouses or on trucks transporting your universal waste? Short circuits that cause fires can happen when batteries are stored or shipped in a non-compliant way. Don’t let non-compliant batteries be a fire starter. By popular demand, we’ve converted one of our webpages into an easy-to-read handout that outlines some of 49 CFR’s battery requirements.
And if you need more information about handling other battery types like wet lead acid batteries we have a handout for that too.
