Established in 1987, the Ammonia Safety & Training Institute (ASTI) is a 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.
For more than two decades the Ammonia Safety & Training Institute (ASTI) has been an internationally recognized leader in developing emergency response protocols and training for the safe response to ammonia emergencies. We are proud that our work has greatly improved the way facility employees and first responders address ammonia emergencies. Our instructors train an average of 3,000 to 5,000 people each year. Our focus on emergency management is to "prevent them all or stop them small." This approach has saved industry millions of dollars in damages and, more importantly, protected lives. Over the last three years ASTI has successfully trained an average of 2,000 industrial and public safety responders in twelve 8-hour Safety Day training sessions throughout the U.S. and Canada and Australia
