Established in 1987, the Ammonia Safety & Training Institute (ASTI) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to making ammonia (NH3) the safest managed hazardous material in the world. Bringing together leaders from industry and public safety organizations with hundreds of years of combined experience, ASTI provides safety management support through effective use of Prevention, Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery (PMPRR) training. All courses meet OSHA standards.
We offer a variety of ammonia specific courses, ranging from basic Awareness, to First Responder/Operational, as well as Technician and Incident Command. Our curriculum combines technical information with a hands-on approach. We offer both computer simulations and live release response drills to further instill the need for a solid ammonia hazard plan and fast reaction to incidents. All of our courses are in accordance with OSHA Standard 1910.120(q) requirements. Check out our course descriptions and calendar for more information.
The One Plan is an all-hazards approach to emergency management, consistently using the same command team to address emergency and disaster related events, such as; fire, medical and chemical releases. The One Plan is an EPA response system that evolved from the collaboration of the National Response Team, and leaders from State and local hazmat response agencies. ASTI utilizes the One Plan as the framework for operational guides, playbooks, forms, and checklists that can be used by public and private command teams during an emergency event. The ASTI One Plan directs the implementation of tactical objectives during pre-emergency planning, high risk operations, and during the four phases of response; Discovery, Initial Response, Sustained Response, and Termination of the emergency event.
