Keep your kids safe - new button battery standards
Button batteries are a hidden hazard in homes, powering many everyday household items such as noise-making or light up toys. Worryingly, every week in Australia 20 children are taken to hospital after swallowing or inserting button batteries.
The Australian Government has introduced four new mandatory standards for button batteries and products containing button batteries. The reason for the new standards is to reduce the risk of death and injury associated with button batteries.
What do the new standards mean?
• Secure battery compartments on products that contain button batteries.
• Compliance testing to demonstrate the batteries are secure.
• Child-resistant packaging.
• Warnings and information on packaging.
All businesses that supply button batteries or products containing button batteries in Australia must comply with the new standards by 22 June 2022.
Button batteries can be found in a broad range of household products. Examples include novelty toys, remote controls, remote control car keys, digital kitchen and bathroom scales, watches, cameras, calculators, torches, fitness devices and musical greeting cards.
We encourage all parents and caregivers to become familiar with the new standard. This includes grandparents, babysitters and daycare providers. Visit the Product Safety Australia website for more information about button batteries, risks and tips for safe use.
Check all battery operated items:
Check all button battery powered items supplied to or used by children. Ensure battery compartments are secured and that batteries cannot be easily dislodged, for example the battery compartment becomes unsecure after the item is dropped.
Risks and injuries
Button batteries pose a severe injury risk, particularly in children aged 0–5 years. Young children are at the greatest risk due to their narrower oesophagus, as well as the tendency to place small objects into their mouths, ears and noses.
What to do in an emergency:
If you suspect your child has swallowed or inserted a button battery, call the Poisons Information Centre immediately on 13 11 26 for 24/7 fast, expert advice. If your child is having any difficulty breathing, contact 000.
