3: POSSIBLE HAZARDS
  
The chemicals mentioned in section2 are contained in a hermetically sealed can risk of exposure occurs only if the battery is mechanically or electrically bused. (See section7 handing & storage).
The most likely risk is acute exposure when a cell vents Sulfuric acid is irritating to skin and all the other organs.
Lead is classified as the heavy metal, if eating without mind will lead toxicosis. (See section8 personal protection)

4: FIRST AID MEASURES
SULFURIC ACID PRECAUTIONS
SKIN CONTACT: Flush with water, see doctor if it doesn’t work.
EYE CONTACT: Flush with water and call doctor immediately.
Ingestion: Call the doctor and flush mouth with water, have the patient drink milk if patient is conscious. Do not give anything to the unconscious person. 


5: FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
In case of fire in an adjacent area, use water, CO2 or dry chemical extinguishers, if cells are packed in. Their original containers since the fuel of the fire is basically paper products. For bulk quantities of unpacked cells use LITH-X. In this case, do not use water. As with any fire wear, self-contained breathing apparatus to avoid inhalation of hazardous decomposition products.

6: ACCIDENTIAL RELEASE MEASURES
If sulfuric acid is spilled from a battery, neutralize the  acid with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), sodium carbon (soda ash), or calcium oxide (lime).
Flush the area with water discard to the sewage systems. Do not allow acid into the sewage system before it is neutralized.
Removal of ignition sources,provision for sufficient ventilation/respiratory protection control of dust,prevention of skin and eye contact.

METHODS FOR CLEANING UP SUCH AS :
Use of absorbent material (e.g.sand,diatomaceous earth,acid binder,universal binder,sawdust,etc.),reduction of gases/fumes with water,dilution.

WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD:
Neutralized acid may be flushed down the sewer. Used batteries must be treated as hazardous waste and disposed of according to local policy and National Laws. A copy of this material safety data must be supplied to any scrap dealer.

7: HANDLING & STORAGE

Spill or Leak Procedures:
Stop flow of material, contain/absorb small spills with dry sand, earth, and vermiculite. Do not use combustible materials. If possible, carefully neutralize spilled electrolyte with soda ash, sodium bicarbonate, lime, etc. Wear acid-resistant clothing, boots, gloves, and face shield. Do not allow discharge of unneutralized acid to sewer.

Handling and Storage:
Store batteries in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas with impervious surfaces and vadequate containment in the event of spills. Batteries should also be stored under roof for protection against adverse weather conditions. Separate from incompatible materials. Store and handle only in areas with adequate water supply and spill control. Avoid damage to containers. Keep away from fire, sparks and heat.

Precautionary Labeling:
POISON - CAUSES SEVERE BURNS
DANGER - CONTAINS SULFURIC ACID

11: TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

LEAD: The toxic effects of lead are accumulative and slow to appear. It affects the kidneys, reproductive, and central nervous system.

The symptoms of lead overexposure are anemia, vomiting, headache, stomach pain (lead colic), dizziness, loss of appetite, and muscle and joint pain. Exposure to lead from a battery most often occurs during lead reclaim operations through the breathing or ingestion of lead dusts and fumes.

SULFURIC ACID: Sulfuric acid is a strong corrosive. Contact with acid can cause severe burns on the skin and in the eyes.

Ingestion of sulfuric acid will cause GI tract burns. Acid can be release if the battery case is damaged or if the vents are tampered with.

FIBERGLASS SEPARATOR: Fibrous glass is an irritant of the upper respiratory tract, skin and eyes. Please use the relative protection gears if necessary.

13: DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Waste Disposal Methods:
Spent batteries: Send to secondary lead smelter for recycling.
Place neutralized slurry into sealed containers and handle as applicable with state and federal regulations. Large water-diluted spills, after neutralization and testing, should be managed in accordance with approved local, state and federal requirements.Consult state environmental agency and/or federal EPA.

14: Packing & Transportation information
14.1   All VRLA batteries must be fully discharged and packaged in a manner as to insure safe handling and conform to all applicable DOT regulations. (49 CFR 173.159d). A dab of silicon caulking or non-conductive tape on each terminal will ensure that no direct shorts occur during shipment.
14.2  VRLA batteries shipments should be made in pallet quantities whenever possible.
14.3 Palletized shipments should be secured with metal bands or poly-wrapped with stack height limited to four (4) feet.
14.4   VRLA batteries shipped on pallets should be of uniform size or be stacked with the larger batteries on the bottom.

14.5  VRLA batteries should be stacked upright in a head-to-base arrangement. Each layer should be separated by cardboard to prevent accidental shorting.
14.6   Smaller quantities of VRLA batteries may be shipped via standard UPS. Be sure that each box does not exceed the UPS weight limit of 70 lbs. A dab of silicon caulking or non-conductive tape on each terminal will ensure that no shorts occur during shipment.
14.7   
The outside of every pallet and individual box must be labeled “NON-SPILLABLE” as required by DOT regulations. This label must be visible during transportation.
14.8    
As VRLA battery exclude the dangerous goods, can transport by: air, rail, road and water.
14.9
