Ammonia & Exposure Risks Discussed in New Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EH&S) issues.
Ammonia (NH3) is a chemical that is both manufactured by humans and is naturally found in the environment. A large amount of the ammonia produced by humans is used as fertilizer. It is also used to produce synthetic fibers, plastics, explosives and a number of cleaning products also contain ammonia in the form of ammonium ions.
“Ammonia has a strong odor that can be irritating to people and exposure at very high concentrations can be fatal,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “Even low levels of ammonia may harm some people with asthma and other sensitive individuals. Ammonia is a corrosive substance and the main toxic effects are usually restricted to the sites of direct contact such as the skin, eyes, respiratory tract, mouth and digestive tract. We hope this video helps to shed some light on ammonia and some common exposure risks.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions & FastMoldRemoval.com, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, ProcessMAP and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
