Ammonia Safety Breakfast Session for Food Processors

November 15, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

An ammonia leak can be dangerous—even catastrophic—causing operational shutdowns, evacuations, and the potential for fatalities. If your refrigeration systems use ammonia, it is critical to understand the associated hazards and liability, your exposure control requirements, and what is required in a comprehensive emergency response plan.

Have you taken the necessary steps to protect your workers and safeguard your business?
