Working on an electric vehicle packs a lot more punch than you would get from licking a 9-volt battery. It can lead to vehicle lurches, fires and even electrocution. That's why having a proper kit of insulated tools, personal protection equipment and even rescue safety tools are essential for the job and overall safety.
Companies such as Eintac, Rauckman Utility and Collision Services already are ramping up for this new technology. While they are "tooling up" with the proper equipment, other companies are developing safety protocols to help keep employees safe.
