Training and Compliance

Bowker continuously invest in staff training, providing warehouse operatives and local management teams with the knowledge and equipment required for the safe storage, and handling of various battery types.

As a rapidly growing sector, our on-going training initiatives allow our COMAH operations to adhere to new regulation, adapting to changes in safety and compliance standards for the safe storage and handling of batteries.

Different battery types pose unique challenges for warehousing solutions, making training imperative. Lithium-ion batteries demand strict temperature control due to their sensitivity to overheating. Lead-acid batteries, commonly used in the automotive industry, require specialised handling protocols to manage their weight and mitigate the risk of acid leaks. Nickel-metal hydride batteries, found in various devices, require strict procedures to be followed to prevent performance deterioration and possible leakage.
