Any person who is tasked with maintaining an Ammonia Refrigeration system must be trained to do so.

Operators are generally workers who may start and stop equipment, make alterations to temperature parameters and/or a worker who completes cursory inspections of the refrigeration system. 

This is an entry level role however all workers who may enter a special machinery space or alter the operating conditions of the system, must have the following core skills to complete their work safely;

  1. Basic appreciation of the Hazardous substance and Function of the Refrigeration Process. 
  2. Understanding of the safety critical elements that maintain control.
  3. Understanding of what conditions require specialist intervention.
  4. Understanding of initial actions in an Emergency situation. 

An operator must not perform any interference such as line breaking or circuit maintenance work unless they have received accreditation and proof of competency from an accepted national body.
