Abstract
A safety information profile is presented for the manufacturing of starting, lighting, and ignition lead acid storage batteries (SIC- 3691). Flow charts and process descriptions are offered for different types of batteries and operations. The primary hazard discussed is exposure to lead (7439921) with some attention paid to sulfuric-acid (7664939) exposure. Current controls for chemical exposure and injury prevention are reviewed. Accident and illness information, and exposure levels are tabulated. Industry trends toward consolidation and production are summarized. Existing standards are listed. Names and addresses of industry associations and other interested parties are included. The results of this safety information profile indicate that newly instituted regulations regarding lead exposure will help alleviate this major hazard. Additional research is recommended to determine the effects of exposure to sulfuric-acid. It is also advised that new industrial technology be monitored to control effectively any emerging potential hazards.
