This updated training course on the safe handling of anhydrous ammonia gives producers the certification, skills and knowledge to properly handle and transport this chemical on their operations.

Anhydrous Ammonia: Safety & the Farmer

The course covers everything farmers need to know about the transport and safe-handling of anhydrous ammonia on the farm. Participants will learn about several topics, including: safe-handling and characteristics of ammonia, first aid procedures in case of emergency, maintenance of nurse tank and applicator unit, connection and disconnection of nurse tank to the applicator and so much more. The course will also cover the Transportation of Dangerous Goods legislation and WHMIS procedures.

The course also includes a brand-new Safety and the Farmer downloadable booklet, which includes the most recent updates to the TDG Regulations in Module 7 (Emergency response and incident reporting) and discusses the three types of reporting:

i) Emergency (Immediate)
ii) Release or Anticipated Release
iii) Follow Up

Successful trainees will receive a Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) certificate, signifying they are qualified to transport and handle anhydrous ammonia (Class 2.3 (8)). The certificate is valid for three years, and interested participants can register for the course, free of charge!

This course is supported by Fertilizer Canada and is available both online and through in-person training.
