Safety of Battery-Powered and Laser-Embedded Devices in the Home and Workplace

Battery safety has become critical as mobility becomes a requirement for common devices used in the home and in the workplace. As the market learns and evolves from past incidences in the field, battery requirements have also been keeping up in addressing potential hazards and risks. As manufacturers develop products for home and the workplace, it becomes most critical that proper battery evaluations are conducted referencing the proper industry standards for batteries as a component and as it operates safely with the end product. Use of lasers in end products can present hazards and concerns for consumers. We will cover basics of laser safety compliance.

In this webinar, we will cover
• Current battery cell and pack standards and requirements used in consumer products both at home and at work
• A general overview of how battery cell and pack standards are applied in end-product safety standards
• An update on recently announced requirements from Occupational Safety and Health Administration
• Basics of laser safety


This session will qualify as an elective for the Product Safety Awareness initiative.
