lead acid batteries

Lead-acid batteries contain sulphuric acid and only trained and authorized personnel should handle them. When talking about lead-acid batteries, people usually call sulphuric acid "battery acid" or the "electrolyte".  An electrolyte is general term used to describe a non-metallic substance like acids like sulphuric acid or salts that can conduct electricity when dissolved in water. Lead-acid batteries can produce explosive mixtures of hydrogen and oxygen gases when they are being charged. 

Charge batteries only in approved, ventilated battery-charging areas. Install a safety shower and an eyewash station in a battery-charging area.
