Danger - High Voltage! The Importance of Safety and Making Sure Every Person on the Team is Trained

Infinitev has always been committed to innovation, sustainability, and most importantly, the safety of its workforce. As the company forges ahead in the realm of remanufacturing high-voltage batteries for electric vehicles, ensuring the safety of every team member has become a top priority. Recently, the Infinitev team undertook a transformative journey by participating in a comprehensive two-day first aid training. This initiative is about fostering a culture of care and preparedness as the company works with intricate high-voltage systems. We're proud to say that every person in the team took time out to learn these invaluable skills. 

Safety also extends to the people working with our products.


Prioritising Safety for High-Voltage Battery Remanufacturing

High-voltage batteries are at the heart of electric vehicles, but their intricate nature demands careful attention and a profound understanding of potential risks. The Infinitev team recognised that the key to a successful and secure operation lies in proactive safety measures and the ability to respond effectively to any unforeseen circumstances.

With this goal in mind, the decision to undergo two days of intensive first aid training was made. This training wasn't just a formality; it was a step towards empowering the team to act confidently and competently in the face of emergencies, thereby safeguarding both themselves and their colleagues.


Training Highlights

The two-day training was a comprehensive program designed to equip the Infinitev team with essential skills and knowledge required for immediate response to emergencies. The training covered a range of topics, including:

  1. Basic Life Support: Learning how to perform CPR and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) effectively, skills that can be life-saving in critical situations.

  2. Handling Electric Shock: Given the nature of their work, the team delved into the protocols for responding to electric shock incidents, minimizing risks and providing timely aid.

  3. Burns and Chemical Exposure: The training also covered first aid measures for burns and exposure to hazardous chemicals, ensuring that the team can confidently address any such incidents.

  4. Injury Management: From minor cuts and bruises to more severe injuries, the team gained insights into providing immediate care until professional medical help arrives.


Cultivating a Culture of Safety and Preparedness

The decision to invest in first aid training goes beyond mere compliance. It's about nurturing a culture where every team member feels confident in their ability to handle emergencies, ensuring the well-being of their colleagues, and fostering an environment where safety is woven into the fabric of daily operations.

We use a modern system where incidents, near misses, and ideas for improvement can be logged. Our workplace health, safety and wellbeing committee meets regularly to ensure we're always looking for ways to improve team safety. Zero harm is a never-ending pursuit.
