Nitrogen Safety Training FAQ
Why is nitrogen gas so dangerous?
Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. Any rapid release of nitrogen gas into an enclosed space can displace oxygen, and therefore represents an asphyxiation (suffocation) hazard.
What training will this course provide?
It is important that employees know how to properly receive, transport, use, store, and safely handle compressed nitrogen gas cylinders.
What happens if you become in direct contact?
Direct skin contact with liquid nitrogen will eventually cause severe frostbite . This may happen almost instantly on contact, or after a second or more, depending on the form of liquid nitrogen.
What can happen if inhaled?
When inhaled, nitrogen begins to act as an anesthetic agent. It can cause nitrogen narcosis, a temporary semi-anesthetized state of mental impairment.
