General Safety Instructions
Storage batteries contain sulfuric acid which will cause severe eye injury, skin
burns, and damage to clothing. Wear eye protection and protective clothing and
avoid spilling any acid. If contact occurs, flush affected areas immediately with
large quantities of water and seek medical attention.
Storage batteries give off hydrogen gas, which is extremely explosive. Keep all
open flames, sparks, and smoking materials away from batteries or serious
personal injury may result.
Always disconnect negative (-) cable first and connect negative (-) cable last or
serious injury may result.
A frozen or completely discharged battery can explode if power is applied. Before
connecting any form of external power to battery, ensure frozen battery is warmed
or discharged battery is replaced or injury to personnel may result.
