All Electric Vehicles feature complex electrical systems that contain high voltage components, such as lithium-ion batteries and other potentially lethal components and cables. It is critical that collision repair center staff understand the safety implications of working with and around high voltage systems. Collision repair businesses should have a documented procedure plan for intake, and work on, high-voltage vehicles. It is the duty of all persons involved in controlling, operating, testing, working on or in the vicinity of electric vehicles or high-voltage components, to implement safety rules and comply with them.

In this video we will review some safety considerations on vehicles that contain high-voltage systems, and explore documentation from manufacturers such as Audi, Jaguar Land Rover, Tesla, Volkswagen and others.
