6. Accidental Release Measures
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
As an immediate precautionary measure, isolate spill or leak area for at least 25 meters (75 feet) in all directions.
Keep unauthorized personnel away. Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas. Ventilate closed areas before entering.
Wear adequate personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Environmental precautions
Absorb spilled material with non-reactive absorbent such as vermiculite, clay or earth. Prevent from migration into
soil, sewers and natural waterways inform local authorities if this occurs.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Evacuate spill area immediately and remove sources of ignition. Do NOT touch spilled material. Cleanup
personnel must be trained in the safe handling of this product. Spills may be absorbed on non-reactive absorbents
such as vermiculite. Place cells or batteries into individual plastic bags and then place into appropriate containers
and close tightly for disposal. Ensure that cleanup procedures do not expose spilled material to any moisture.
Immediately transport closed containers outside. Lined steel drums are suitable for storage of damaged cells or
batteries until proper disposal can be arranged.
7. Handling and Storage
Precaution for Handling
Avoid short circuiting the cell. Avoid mechanical damage of the cell. Do not open or disassemble.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.
Condition for storage
Storage at room temperature (approx. 20°C) at approx. 20~60% of the nominal capacity
(OCV approx. 3.6 - 3.9 V/cell).
Keep in closed original container.
8. Exposure controls/personal protection Exposure limit values Exposure limits
Exposure Control Measures
Exposure Limit Values: Airborne exposures to hazardous substances are not expected when the cells or
batteries are used for their intended purposes. Exposure standards are not applicable to the sealed articles.
Biological Monitoring: Not applicable.
Control Banding: Not applicable.
Recommended monitoring procedures: Follow standard monitoring procedures.
Derived no-effect level (DNEL): Not applicable.
Derived minimal effect level (DMEL): Not applicable.
Predicted no-effect concentrations (PNECs): Not applicable.
Engineering Controls
Engineering Controls: Special ventilation is not required when using these products in normal use
scenarios.Ventilation is required if there is leakage from the cell or battery.
Individual Protection Measures
Eye and Face protection: Eye protection is not required when handling cells or batteries during normal
use.Wear safety glasses/goggles if handling a leaking or ruptured cell or battery.
Skin (Hand) protection: Hand protection is not required when handling the cell or battery during normal
use.PVC gloves are recommended when dealing with a leaking or ruptured cell or battery.
Skin (clothing) protection: Skin protection is not required when handling the cell or battery during normal use.
Wear long sleeved clothing to avoid skin contact if handling a leaking or ruptured cell or battery. Soiled clothing
