Yes, so when working with or near a battery, or jump starting a vehicle, always:
- Wear glasses or safety goggles
- Shield eyes and face from the battery
- Keep as much distance as possible from the battery
- Read warning labels on the battery
- Do not cause any flames or sparks
- Read the vehicle instruction manual before jump starting
If you should get acid on your skin or in your eyes, flush with water immediately and seek medical attention.
