BUT­TON BAT­TERY SAFETY

Kapi-Mana News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Don’t al­low chil­dren to play with but­ton bat­ter­ies.

Store but­ton bat­ter­ies as you would med­i­ca­tion or matches – out of reach of chil­dren.

Keep spare or used bat­ter­ies away from tablets and pills that el­derly peo­ple may be tak­ing.

Change but­ton bat­ter­ies on a sur­face out of chil­dren’s reach. Im­me­di­ately place the dead bat­tery out of their reach.

Make sure the bat­tery cover on de­vices that use but­ton bat­ter­ies is se­cure, so a child can’t re­move it. Use duct tape if nec­es­sary.

Seek med­i­cal at­ten­tion im­me­di­ately if you think some­one has swal­lowed a but­ton bat­tery or if chil­dren may have placed one in their nose or ear. Do not let the per­son eat or drink any­thing and do not in­duce vom­it­ing.
