The CMA Advisory Review Board (ARB) recently reviewed the DOE lesson
(Exploding Battery Incident) and they requested that this be forwarded to you
for your information. This lesson involves a worker who used two different
brands of lithium batteries in one flashlight, causing the flashlight to
explode while in the worker's pocket. No further action is needed. If you
have any questions, please contact us at CMA-LessonsLearned at us.saic.com.
