Dry Ice Safety Awareness Training

Due to Covid-19 we are no longer offering in-person workshops, instead
we have converted our Dry Ice Safety Awareness Training into an online course.

The online training course covers the following topics:

Module 1: Introduction to Dry Ice

  • Properties of dry ice
  • Proper handling and use of dry ice
  • Proper storage of dry ice
  • Disposal of dry ice and packaging
Module 2: Transportation of Dry Ice

  • Transportation and dispatch of dry ice
  • Packing instructions for dispatch by air
  • Dispatch by air of biological materials using dry ice as a refrigerant
    Module 3: Dry Ice Health & Safety

    • Risk Assessments
    • Hazard Identification and Control
    • Calculating the oxygen level in a room after a spillage of dry ice
    • General precautions and First Aid
    Please note this course does not provide certified Dangerous Goods Training – this course focuses on Dry Ice Safety Awareness, how to handle, store, and transport dry ice according to best-practice guidelines.

    Training Assessments

    Regular reviews are an important part of risk assessment. They are an opportunity to look at any changes that may have occurred, such as:

    • Staff – number, age, experience, responsibilities.
    • Equipment – new machines.
    • Methods – revised processes.
    • Building structure – new facilities.

    Note all changes since the last review and check what additional information, instruction and training that you should provide.

    A training needs assessment is a cost effective way to begin targeting the high risk areas. A “fresh pair of eyes” to look over your safety provisions can help to spot areas for improvement. 

    Consultancy

    While dry ice is an extremely versatile product with many uses, it is difficult to manufacture economically, difficult to store effectively, and can be hazardous to handle. We have experience in the manufacturing, storage, transport, and handling of dry ice.

    If you currently use Dry Ice then talk to us about product efficiency and product safety as these two often go hand in hand.
