     We are California Safety Training Corporation, based in Bakersfield, CA.  We've been serving nationwide clients large and small since 1985, and we are considered one of California's leading Safety consultants.  We work closely with ammonia refrigeration facilities and contractors to ensure enhanced worker safety and continued compliance with a myriad of government regulations. 

     Our expertise with California Accidental Release Programs (CalARPs), Risk Management Plans (RMPs) and Process Safety Management (PSM) began before the regulations were established and has continued to grow.  Our Ammonia Safety Specialists are certified by the Refrigerating Engineers and Technicians Association, and we are proud members of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration.

     CSTC can assist your facility by conducting thorough PHAs (Process Hazard Analysis) and Compliance Audits, and through the creation of: written Standard Operating Procedures; Mechanical Integrity programs; Management of Change procedures, Emergency Response Plans, and Hot Works Procedures.  In addition, we've developed a full line of checklists and forms to assist you in documenting your safety efforts.

     We can also provide training in a variety of ammonia-refrigeration-related topics such as: Ammonia Safety, Emergency Response, First-Responder Operations, Food Safety, Personal Protective Equipment, Respiratory Protection, and a long list of facility-related training:  Forklift Operation, Lock-Out, Block-Out, Tag-Out (LOBOTO), HACCP (Hazard Analysis, Critical Control Points), Pesticides, and many more.
