Pre-Conference Workshop – Tuesday 1st December 

Batteries become daily use components for many applications. More than that we can say that without batteries our life will change dramatically – Just think on life with no mobile phones.

In the race for energy density, we sometimes forget the safety.
Unfortunately, we face daily safety events with injures and severe damage.

The program of the Training focuses on portable and stationary battery safety along battery cycle life (acceptance, testing, assembly, use, transportation and disposal).

The Training incorporates Shmuel De-Leon and other experience on battery safety for over 28 years of work in the field.

The motivation behind the Training is to provide information to the attendants with the knowledge needed to handle safely the batteries in their organization and to support reduction in safety events.
