ice rink coach breaths in amonia from leak
All I can say is wow. I know the stuff is dangerous, but did not know it can lead to life disabling injuries.
My question is, do these ammonia alarms respond to ammonia by detecting it in the air? Had she not walks to the back of the rink she would have never been exposed. Shouldn't there be a PA announcement to tell people to move away from the building?
When I attended first aid, fist thing taught "evaluate your enviement"
If you happen across some one unconscious or lying on the ground, evaluate the enviroment.
I heard of a case of five bodies laying next to a power pole with one live wire on the ground. Seems that as each car stopped, the drive got out to help, only to get electrocuted.
This officers should have been training to not to go into a cloud of vapors to help the unconscious victim on the ground.
As a safety measure, do your employers that dispense ammonia require to carry a respirator and suit when servicing ammonia refrigeration systems?.
