For background, I'm a hazmat operator and weapons of mass destruction coordinator for a federal agency. If the answer to my question isn't appropriate for the forum, send me a PM and I'll give you a gov email. Really just asking for my own interest.

I'd would like to know what hazards I may be facing and how to protect myself.You know, that ORM stuff.
Quote from: PHall on April 24, 2020, 09:54:27 pmEven a modern automotive or aircraft battery has lots of stuff that you don't want to touch or breathe when it's been broken open or smashed.Kinda hard to recognize a hazard if you don't know what to look for.But, as some people keep saying over and over, it ain't going to happen.I'd rather get educated so I know what to look for then to trust blind luck.
