When handling battery acid, always wear proper eye, face and hand protection.
Battery acid (electrolyte) is a solution of sulfuric acid and water that can destroy clothing and burn skin. Use extreme caution when handling electrolyte and keep an acid neutralizing solution – such as baking soda or even household ammonia mixed with water – readily available in the event of a spill
You can add acid to water, but you can never add water to acid
Always wear eye protection; if electrolyte is splashed into the eye, immediately force the eye open and flood with clean cool water. Get medical attention immediately
If electrolyte is somehow taken internally, drink large amounts of water or milk. DO NOT induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately
Neutralize with baking soda any electrolyte that spills in the work area, rinse with water
