The Food Storage and Distribution Federation and the British Frozen Food Federation have come together along with industry experts to deliver a Safe Management of Ammonia Refrigeration Systems seminar on 16th May 2017.
This seminal event will provide suppliers, users, consultants and engineering contractors of ammonia refrigeration systems with key guidance and clarify their legal responsibilities and will be held at the Belton Woods Hotel in Grantham.
FSDF Chief Executive Chris Sturman commented, “We are pleased that FSDF and BFFF have joined forces to put on this critical and timely event. Over the last three years, FSDF have been taking a lead role, in collaboration with the Health and Safety Executive and ACRIB on behalf of the refrigeration industry, in producing revised Codes of Practice, and educating businesses in the temperature controlled food industry about the health and safety aspects of ammonia refrigeration system design and operation, and in particular the safe use and handling of ammonia.
Following the tragic incident at the Northampton brewery last year, we recognise we have an even greater responsibility to contribute to and clarify guidelines for industry professionals, to ensure competence and regulatory compliance.”
The key topics of the Safe Management of Ammonia Refrigeration Systems seminar include: legislation and implications of non-compliance; HSE’s strategy and concerns; Why Ammonia is a good refrigerant; Safe management of Ammonia; and Emergency arrangements.
