Lithium Battery Safety Overview
The use of lithium ion batteries is rapidly expanding in both domestic and international segments of the directional surveying, logging, and oil drilling industries.
The increased prevalence of this power source, and industry demands for higher standards of energy output, have led to increased incident and severity rates among service providers. Education in the safe use of lithium batteries is of paramount importance to the health and safety of personnel working with or who could potentially be affected by the use of lithium batteries.
