Lithium Batteries a threat administration subject.

Lithium Batteries a risk management issue.

I learn this morning that the NSW Fireplace and Rescue have right now reported that there have been 45 fires straight associated to lithium batteries for the reason that starting of the 2024 yr.

 Sadly additionally two folks have misplaced their lives within the fires and presumably a 3rd but to be confirmed.

The truth is that Lithium batteries are in lots of objects right now and we have to personally handle the danger.

It seems to me that almost all of the fires happen in cheaper home equipment the place the battery administration system shouldn’t be what it must be. I don’t depart any batteries on cost in a single day and have issues like energy software battery chargers on time clocks in order that they flip off at evening.

The opposite large subject is having adequate smoke detectors in your house. I wrote about this solely just lately. I connect a hyperlink right here to the article wherein I clarify the system I settled on after plenty of analysis.

I do know that plenty of golf golf equipment have issued directives that golf buggies can now not be charged on the course. Whereas this improves the danger administration for the membership it solely strikes the issue to folks’s properties which causes me grave concern particularly once you hear of the variety of fires (not essentially all associated to golf buggy batteries) which were reported in NSW alone.

Earlier this yr, I went to the LMI School and LMI RiskCoach groups and requested if they might put collectively a brief course on the dangers related to the batteries. They had been one step a head of me they usually suggested they’d researched the subject and had a course already uploaded on the LMI School Persevering with Skilled Improvement Portal. Effectively carried out to all these concerned.
