PSM I for Ammonia Systems

Course Description

Many businesses that use anhydrous ammonia in their operations currently do not have the necessary knowledge base to create and implement an effective Process Safety Management (PSM) program. This has resulted in many PSM accidents, releases, and catastrophes. PSM I for Ammonia Systems will give you a general understanding of PSM and its history to guide the implementation, maintenance, or update of your own organization’s program.

An online version of this course will be coming soon. Please check back for further updates.
