Hybrid Electic Vehicle (HEV) Safety Considerations

 Average 0 out of 5

A module containing a presentation and lab both concerning HEV safety. This resource was developed through seed funding from the CAAT.


This module consists of a presentation and lab both concerning HEV safety and were developed to enhance automotive courses with HEV technologies through a seed grant from the CAAT. Some safety considerations discussed are wire sheathing color, safety gloves, insulated tools, multimeters, high voltage disabling procedures, and HEV smart keys. The lab will familiarize technicians with the safety precautions associated with working on HEVs such as dealing with high voltage and isolating these potentially dangerous circuits.
