Abstract
A Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study of agricultural handling of anhydrous-ammonia (7664417) from the receipt of ammonia at the retail distribution center, to the application of the ammonia in the fields was conducted. The analysis consists of the formulation of potential accident scenarios for which the HAZOP team presented recommendations so that these potential hazards could be reduced and the accidents would be less likely to occur. This analysis resulted in the formulation of 95 recommendations which should increase the awareness of the hazards of ammonia to farmers, should suggest potential design improvements and should indicate where additional training is needed. The risk of ammonia related toxicity to farmers should be greatly reduced by the implementation of these recommendations.
