EPA Announces New Storage and Handling Requirements for Anhydrous Ammonia

A new industry standard has been finalized for all facilities that store or handle anhydrous ammonia. The new Compressed Gas Association Standard G-2.1-2014 replaces the previous standard - ANSI K61.1.

Under EPA regulations, each facility that stores or handles anhydrous ammonia has a general duty to work toward compliance with the most current industry standard. This new standard applies to ag producers as well as retail fertilizer dealers. 
 
 
ResponsibleAg Certification Program

The ResponsibleAg Certification Program began on Monday December 8, 2014. Registration is voluntary and is open to any business that stores or handles fertilizer products. The focus of the program for the first three years will be on companies that store and handle ammonium nitrate and/or anhydrous ammonia fertilizer. 
 
 
OSHA Expands Reporting Requirements for Fatalities and Severe Injuries

Effective January 1, 2015, new OSHA rules will require all employers under OSHA jurisdiction to notify OSHA of work-related fatalities within 8 hours, and work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations or losses of an eye within 24 hours. Previously, OSHA's regulations required an employer to report only work-related fatalities and in-patient hospitalizations of three or more employees.
