Last year, the Department for Transport published information for Recovery operators: working with electric vehicles. Following that publication, the team here at Prosol UK put together a Recovery Operator EV High Voltage Safety Kit specifically designed for Recovery Operators to comply with the various recommendations outlined in the report.

Comments Matt Butcher, sales and marketing manager at Prosol UK: “The roadside recovery of electric and hybrid vehicles poses different hazards for recovery personnel. Risks associated with high voltage systems, namely the lithium-ion battery array used to power electric and hybrid vehicles, must not be underestimated and should be considered whenever these vehicles are being worked on.”

Continues Matt: “Our comprehensive Recovery Operator EV High Voltage Safety Kit is an essential item. Tailored specifically to the needs and requirements of recovery operators, it can also be used in conjunction with our Fire Cloak Electric Vehicle Fire Blanket.”

From electrical insulating gloves and leather over gloves, to a respirator mask and insulating shrouds, the Recovery Operator EV High Voltage Safety kits are in stock now and ready to purchase and ship.
