Course Content Summary
Among all the safety hazards common in agriculture, clearly one of the most dangerous is the handling of anhydrous ammonia. As vital as this chemical can be in a soil-fertility program, it poses a serious threat to life and livelihood, if mishandled.
This training course starts with a quick breakdown of what anhydrous ammonia is, the risk any exposure presents, and training on everything from job site preparedness to accident response. Training includes equipment inspection and maintenance, proper filling and transportation of the nurse tank, followed by information on making connections and performing field applications.
