Lithium-ion Battery Fire Awareness

Lithium-ion Battery Fires have gained a lot of traction in the media in recent months. Although Lithium-ion Batteries are on the whole a safe product, when the batteries become  compromised and enter into thermal runaway the results can be terrifying.

Our Lithium-ion Battery Fire Awareness course can be delivered online or in person.

The course is designed to give people a better understanding L-ion batteries and identify the signs of a damaged battery and how to best react in the event of a fire involving lithium batteries.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for any employee who may in their role come into contact with lithium-ion batteries. In particular those who may be involved in the maintenance, distribution/collection and recycling of devices containing these batteries.


2 – 2.5 hours.
