Learn More About Lithium Batteries Online Training

Hazmat employees must have a clear understanding of the stringent shipping and handling regulations for all hazardous materials that they deal with. However, lithium batteries draw added attention because of the unique challenges, dangers, and risks they pose. These batteries can be found in a range of items that includes cell phones, pacemakers, digital cameras, vehicles, and many other electronic devices and equipment. Shipments of these potentially dangerous items are transported 24/7 around the world, as they have become an integral part of daily life.

One of the most serious hazards associated with lithium cells and batteries is the potential of what is termed “thermal run-away,” which is an unstoppable chain reaction of increasing heat, typically caused by internal or external short circuit, damage, or misuse that can result in fire and explosion of the battery. A reaction of this type can potentially compromise the integrity of not only the package being transported, but also other cargo and the means of transportation itself, endangering lives and property. Stringent national and international regulations are in place regarding manufacture, testing, and subsequent transport of lithium batteries for distribution, including specific packaging and communication requirements, all of which are critical to their ultimate safe use.

Particular attention to the intricacies of the regulations for transporting lithium batteries is essential, because they can differ depending on certain circumstances. There are two types of lithium batteries: lithium metal and lithium ion batteries. Due to their different chemistries the specific requirements for their transport are not identical. There are also certain regulations specific to the different modes of transportation used for shipping lithium batteries - air, sea, and ground. For example, according to the International Air Transport Association’s Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR), damaged or defective lithium batteries must not be shipped by air.

All of this means that the best way to understand the many regulations specifically regarding lithium batteries is to undergo training in a course that is focused on the subject, which is why Hazmat University provides mode-specific and multimodal supplementary Lithium Batteries Training courses that are exactly that. These valuable courses will guide the lithium battery shipper to regulatory compliance and safety of their shipment, whether the lithium batteries are contained in equipment, packed with equipment, or shipped alone for devices that use them as power sources.

Designed to be supplemental to dangerous goods by air, ground, or vessel training programs, these modal and multimodal courses focus on information specific to the shipping of lithium batteries, including the regulations for their classification, identification, packing, marking, labeling, placarding, documentation, and segregation, and the requirement for immediate availability of emergency response information. Also provided in the regulations are certain packaging and communication exceptions for lithium batteries of specific smaller energy capacity, and these exceptions are also explained in this training.

Hazmat University offers a flexible series of modal and multimodal Lithium Batteries Training courses which provide the following benefits:

  • Course content specifically focused on the requirements for transporting lithium batteries provides training cost and time efficiency by addressing only relevant requirements.
  • The courses provide a single solution which satisfies supplemental initial and recurrent training requirements of the applicable modal regulations.
  • Hazmat University’s multimodal supplemental lithium battery training options consolidate lithium battery training content that is common to the separate modal regulations, while also providing the mode-specific requirements found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), the International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR), and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code).
  • Selecting a multimodal course which combines the requirements of the multiple transportation modes of your choice provides you not only with the same content as you would receive by taking the individual modal courses, but also with significant savings of time and cost when compared to completing the modal courses individually.

You will find a list of regulatory manuals in the course details.  For further information, please call our office at (844) 532-7634.
