Mechanical integrity, or MI, is a significant part of the 14 elements included in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s process safety management (PSM) program. An online course will explore the “Fundamentals of Mechanical Integrity for Ammonia Refrigeration Systems” on June 6-10.

This online education program highlights the importance of MI and how it relates to OSHA requirements. The program will provide an outline of compliance regarding MI for ammonia refrigeration systems from pumps to vessels.

The Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC) and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) will host the five-day course delivered online synchronously daily for one week in two-hour segments. Sessions will be conducted live by industry experts, and participants will be able to ask questions to the presenter in real-time.

Industrial refrigeration professionals whose job responsibilities include ensuring the mechanical integrity of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems can earn continuing education credits by completing this course. Attendees are expected to include plant managers; contractors; maintenance directors and supervisors; designers; utility supervisors; engineering managers; facility engineers; facility managers; refrigeration operators/technicians; mechanical and refrigeration engineers; and industry professionals who focus on regulatory requirements for ammonia refrigeration systems such as PSM coordinators and state and federal regulators.

The cost is $795 for IIAR members and $1,295 for nonmembers. Click here to register.
