Farmer Training - Online Anhydrous Ammonia Safety Awareness Program
IFCA in cooperation with Illinois Farm Bureau, Illinois Corn Growers Association and Illinois Department of Agriculture have developed a new online anhydrous ammonia safety awareness program for farmers. Funded by a grant from the Illinois Nutrient Research & Education Council (NREC), the online program consists of five training modules covering Properties and Characteristics of NH3, Proper Personal Protective Equipment, Transportation to and From the Field, Safe Hook-Up in the Field and Emergency/First Aid Procedures. There is no cost to use the safety awareness program which is specifically designed for use for on-farm employees and family members who work around, transport, or apply anhydrous ammonia. Over the last two years there have been an increased number of anhydrous ammonia releases and hospitalizations due to inhalation or skin exposure.
