Battery fire awareness for everyone...

Lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) power our lives. They're everywhere, from the phone in your back pocket to large scale energy storage systems. In normal use, they're inherently safe to operate & charge.

But, when LiBs catch fire, known as '
thermal runaway',  there are significant life & property safety risks.

This series of Online Awareness Courses covers fire & emergency basics, safer EV charging hubs & much more.

With this knowledge, you'll prevent, prepare & respond to emergency incidents involving lithium-ion batteries.

These short courses are self-guided, video-based & designed to provide awareness, guidance & knowledge to businesses, but are also relevant to emergency responders.
