Abstract
A guide for the establishment of a training program for employees who handle anhydrous-ammonia (7664417) is presented. Areas addressed in this training include the physical properties of anhydrous-ammonia, the effects of overexposure, first aid to counteract such exposure, and the proper use of personal protective and safety equipment. Safe procedures for the operation, maintenance, and repair of equipment also are described. Proper storage and handling of ammonia in bulk plants and permanent installations are examined, and transfer operations and transportation are discussed. Potential accidents involving anhydrous-ammonia are cited, and publications containing detailed information regarding the handling of the substance that may be helpful in establishing training and safety and health programs are listed. Details on the transfer of anhydrous-ammonia, as well as descriptions of valves, fittings, and cylinders related to its storage, are provided.
