Actions Required During Ammonia Release Incidents: What Do
Actions Required During Ammonia Release Incidents: What Do Different (2005)-The changes in emergency response over the last 20 years have been significant. Regulatory mandates, including RMP, PSM, and OSHA’s training and personal protective equipment requirements, have required some very serious changes in the way we do business. We continue to improve management of ammonia releases — working on practical and effective strategies such as to stop the releases while they are small, to well-organized transitions of command among the four phases of emergency management. Today, the answer to emergency response readiness is in the basics and not in focusing on the fear-based worst-case scenarios. In 1986, we began to promote the fact that ammonia will burn, given the infamous Shreveport incident. Today, we have moved beyond fear-based logic to using prevention, mitigation, and preparedness to stop incidents small. The community threat from an ammonia release has been significantly reduced using practical approaches to managing ammonia. As a result, we are well on our way to making ammonia the safest managed hazardous material in the world.
