Battery Management

Collection: Battery Management

While industry is becoming more reliant on lithium-ion batteries, the risks associated with these powerful cells must be understood and controlled to mitigate harm to people, property and the environment.  

You may find lithium-ion batteries in a vast range of devices, equipment and tools in your workplace, including laptops, mobile phones, e-vehicles, marine craft, industrial robots, production equipment, drones and medical devices. 

Battery Management for Your Workplace

Classified as a Class 9 Miscellaneous Article, lithium-ion batteries must be operated in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. These cells must also be stored, handled and transported in a safe environment to control the risk of ignition, explosion or hazardous material leakage. 

Storemasta have developed an Australian-made range of lithium battery solutions to reduce lithium-ion battery risk for your operations. Talk to us about your Battery Management needs today.

What is Battery Management?

Battery Management is about controlling the risks with your workplace batteries. Just like the risk management practices for dangerous goods, you must be able to identify hazards, assess risks, then control the risk and sustain compliance.

What are the risks associated with batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries are a particular risk in the workplace due to a range of factors, including thermal runaway, flammable electrolyte leaks and battery fires. Lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to heat and extreme temperatures, and may become dangerous if they are damaged, aged, short circuited or subjected to water.

How are lithium-ion batteries used in the workplace?

Lithium-ion batteries are widely used in various applications such as portable electronics, electric vehicles, industrial robots and medical devices due to their high energy density and long cycle life. The applications for these batteries is increasing as the popularity of this energy source grows.

How do you control lithium-ion battery fire risk?

Multiple layers of protection are required to minimise the risk of lithium-ion battery fires. Hazard awareness and training, battery storage, safe charging practices, alarm systems, fire suppression and battery transport units are just some of the controls which can help reduce the likelihood and impact of a battery fire.
