Safety videos target lithium battery risk

A series of videos highlighting the potential aircraft fire risks posed by the improper carriage of lithium batteries are now available online.
The videos, produced by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in association with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), target key airline and airport staff, including cargo handlers.
Freely available online the videos are intended to supplement existing dangerous goods training programmes, to ensure aviation workers understand how the risks associated with lithium batteries impact on their frontline jobs.
The videos highlight different scenarios by recreating "real-life situations". The correct procedures for dealing with those situations are demonstrated in detail.
Lithium batteries power most personal electronic devices. Although lithium batteries are very safe, their high energy levels mean they can pose a fire risk if damaged.
The videos can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/UKCAA
