Ammonia safety poster

Alexandria, Virginia, US: The Global Cold Chain Alliance, working with the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) has produced an ammonia safety poster that provides basic safety information for anyone working in an ammonia refrigeration facility.

The vast majority of refrigerated warehouses use ammonia as their primary refrigerant, so the Alliance Team identified ammonia safety as a high priority.

This poster is the first in a series of compliance assistance products developed through the GCCA/OSHA Alliance to promote safety across the cold chain. Future plans include the translation of this poster into Spanish and additional posters focused on ammonia and worker safety.

The poster is available for download free of charge at the website: www.gcca.org/gcca/GCCA-OSHA_Alliance.html.
