Forklift Battery Room Accessories Improve Safety and Comply with Regulations
With the right equipment, forklift battery rooms can be just as safe as any other area of the warehouse. Total battery room solutions from BHS include everything you need to enjoy safer, more efficient battery changes across shifts.
Federal safety regulations specify accessories and equipment that every battery charging area should keep on hand. One particular OSHA standard, 1910.178(g)(2), points out four battery room hazards that employers must address.
Here are the key components of this regulation, along with the BHS battery room accessories that provide compliance:
- "Flushing and neutralizing spilled electrolyte" (Battery Spill Kits)
- "Fire protection" (Safety Alarms & Response)
- "Protecting charging apparatus from damage by trucks" (Structural Barriers)
- "Adequate ventilation for dispersal of fumes from gassing batteries" (Safety Alarms & Response)
Furthermore, Eye & Safety Stations help to comply with OSHA standard 1910.151 - Medical Services & First Aid. To learn more about how BHS equipment can help employers comply with OSHA regulations and other federal guidelines, click here.
