Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 is reserved for general industry standards. Ammonia refrigeration regulations are found in 29 CFR 1910.119, entitled "Process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals."

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazardous chemicals such as anhydrous ammonia. According to OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119, employees working with and around this highly hazardous chemical must receive initial and refresher ammonia certification training.

To ensure compliance with OSHA safety training standards, ammonia certification training must be conducted at least every three years. More frequent ammonia handling course retraining ensures that everyone involved in ammonia refrigeration understands current operating procedures. This online certification meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.1 CEUs (or 1 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.

This is a very good course and many people other than the refrigeration people should take this informative course just because they may at a location with this equipment and should stay away or only know how to help in a emergency and also what not to do - IE best to stay away but some don't they rush to a scene to see what is going on.
