Ammonia (NH3) is a colourless gas, that consists of Nitrogen and Hydrogen. It has a pungent odour that is frequently compared to cleaning chemicals. Ammonia is created in soil by bacterial activities as part of the nitrogen cycle.
Ammonia can be found in the air, soil, and water, as well as in plants and animals, including people. Many home and commercial detergents also contain ammonia. Ammonia can irritate and burn the skin, mouth, throat, lungs, and eyes at high levels. Extremely high levels of ammonia can cause death or damage to the lungs. Ammonia exposure can cause injury to workers. The amount of exposure is determined by the dose, duration, and type of job performed.
