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.
The safety awareness program can be accessed 24/7 by going to http://learning.ifca.com.
