Type: Image Slide

Speaker Notes:

eTools are "stand-alone," interactive, Web-based training tools on occupational safety and health topics. They are highly illustrated and utilize graphical menus.

The Ammonia Refrigeration eTool was designed to assist employers and employees in identifying and controlling the hazards associated with the operation and maintenance of ammonia refrigeration systems. Many of the Process Safety Management Standard, 1910.119, requirements are identified in this eTool as possible controls and are useful as recommended practices whether or not the ammonia refrigeration system is a covered process. This first phase of the eTool consists of ammonia receiving and emergency response. Other later planned areas of operations include the condenser area, piping and pressure vessels, refrigeration spaces and the machine room.

Alliance Program participants, Dow Chemical Company and American Meat Institute, assisted in the development of the eTool.
