Anhydrous Ammonia Safety Training
This Anhydrous Ammonia training course teaches your workers about the characteristics and uses of ammonia as well as the hazards associated with this hazardous gas. Your workers will learn proper storage techniques, safe work practices as well as proper emergency response procedures. Anhydrous ammonia, NH3, is commonly used in both industry and agriculture. This gas emits vapors that are suffocating and can lead to serious health problems, even death. This Ammonia Safety Training course outlines an active program of safety and inspection to prevent accidents in the workplace. It features exciting footage, instructive animations, and valuable information about the illegal use of anhydrous ammonia in clandestine drug labs.
