PROJECT TITLE :
Injury Surveillance and Safety Considerations for Large-Format Lead-Acid Batteries Used in Mining Applications
Massive lead-acid batteries are predominantly used throughout the mining business to power haulage, utility, and personnel-carrier vehicles. While not proper operation and maintenance, the employment of these batteries can introduce mechanical and electrical hazards, particularly within the confined, and probably dangerous, environment of an underground coal mine. A review of the Mine Safety and Health Administration accident/illness/injury database reveals that a significant number of injuries occur throughout the maintenance and repair of lead-acid batteries. These injuries embody burns from electrical arcing and acid exposure, as well as strained muscles and crushed hands. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health investigated the planning and implementation of those batteries to spot safety interventions which will mitigate these inherent hazards. This paper promotes practical design modifications, like reducing the size and weight of battery assembly lids beside carry assists, along with using five-pole cable connectors to enhance safety.
