Battery Spill Containment

UPS Battery strings are an important component of any critical back-up power system, but the sulfuric acid and lead contained in batteries is extremely hazardous. If improperly handled or if a slow leak remains undetected, the UPS batteries become extremely hazardous to employees and visitors, and corrosive to the surrounding equipment and flooring.

We recommend that all commercial property owners as well as others utilizing UPS battery systems in their facilities undergo a full environmental audit of their properties. This audit should address hazardous discharge handling and spill containment. The implementation and installation of all required spill containment, ventilation and personal protection fire/life/safety systems including body and/or eye wash stations as required, is mandatory for the safety of the tenants, workers, employees and visitors to commercial properties utilizing UPS battery systems.
