Workplace injury: Plant manager fails to respond to ammonia leak

Exposure to ammonia can cause workplace injury in the form of extreme eye and skin irritations. At particularly high concentrations, it can cause fluid accumulation in the lungs and asphyxiation. Emergency systems must be in place to vent any ammonia leaks out of buildings, along with devices to monitor any leaks.
