Lithium Fire Safety Awareness
Are you prepared for fire risk of lithium-ion batteries?

Why Train With Australian Fire Protection?

Australian Fire Protection has been preparing people for emergencies for over thirty years.  With the recent spate of Lithium-Ion fires in homes and industries, we have introduced a course specifically for Lithium-Ion fires

Our new Lithium-Ion Fire Safety Awareness course is designed to raise occupant's awareness when responding to a lithium-ion battery fire incident in the workplace.

Contact us today to book your Lithium Fire Safety Awareness course, and give your team the knowledge and skills to respond safely in the event of lithium-ion battery fires.

Is Your Workplace Prepared for a Lithium-Ion Fire Incident?
Structure fires caused by lithium-ion batteries, powerpacks or chargers have nearly doubled in the past five years as products like e-Rideables or light electric vehicles (LEV) have become more popular in Australia. LEVs contain lithium-ion batteries and come with associated risks and hazards (including fire and explosion, plus radiation, heat, chemical and electrical hazards).

When a lithium-ion device is overcharged, faulty or poorly manufactured, the batteries can potentially overheat and start a fire that has the potential to destroy an entire facility in just minutes. Lithium-ion batteries can explode when damaged, crushed or when exposed to high ambient temperatures. When lithium-ion batteries fail they can release toxic, corrosive and explosive gases, and an intense, self-sustaining fire that can prove very difficult to extinguish.

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are used in an ever-increasing variety of products such as:

    • Power tools
    • Mobile phones
    • Laptops & tablets
    • e-Rideables/LEV 's e.g., electric scooters, electric skateboards, hoverboards etc
    • Electric vehicles (EV's) or Hybrid vehicles
    • Forklifts

    • e-Cigarettes

If the batteries are intact and contained, it is generally very safe. However, when damaged, crushed or when they overheat, lithium ion batteries can pose a threat to occupants in facilities as the chemicals inside the battery are highly flammable which results in a very rapid fire.

This is why we think it's important for all businesses, particularly those that use or store lithium-ion batteries in the workplace, to make sure their team has a good understanding of how to respond quickly and safely if these batteries catch fire.

Our Lithium-Ion Fire Safety Awareness course is specifically designed to raise the awareness of occupants in response to a fire incident from lithium-ion batteries.

Common sense approach

I have been working in shopping centres for the past 13 years and this was the best fire training I have ever received. It was extremely practical and wonderful to have a common sense approach to dealing with evacuations and fire procedures..

Outstanding Service

I decided to use Austfirepro because of their detailed and prompt response to my initial query. This outstanding service initially carried through to their service delivery. I dealt mainly with Tracey, who was outstanding. Every query was answered, not only on time but with a lot of detail (this extends to everyone else I dealt with while Tracey was on leave). Would absolutely recommend this company to anyone.
