An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Nitrogen Awareness Program


 Nitrogen (N2), as a gas, is colorless and odorless. When nitrogen concentration increases, the oxygen concentration decreases and the atmosphere may contain less than 19.5% oxygen.  Breathing atmospheres of less than 19.5% oxygen can lead to progressively more adverse health effects, including death.  Nitrogen displaces carbon dioxide in the lungs, which tells the body to stop breathing.  Nitrogen is typically used to displace air to create an oxygen deficient atmosphere.  Replace with Company Name shall provide training for all affected employees. [1]

 Nitrogen purging has several applications.  As a gas, some uses include:  1.) inerting equipment to prevent flammable atmospheres; 2.)  preparing equipment for maintenance by purging out hydrocarbons; 3.)   removing air/oxygen in equipment before startup; 4.)  blanketing tanks to prevent the ingress of air; 5.)  certain welding operations;  6.)   decommissioning equipment to prevent the “rusting” process; 7.) instrument air backup.  Nitrogen can also be used as a liquid for cooling purposes and is stored in large quantities in liquid form.   

 The use of nitrogen can be harmful.  Due to the hazards of working in nitrogen atmospheres, alternative processes not requiring entry into an inert atmosphere must be considered and, when appropriate, become the preferred alternative.  Documented planning will be conducted for those operations involving potential nitrogen exposure, this includes anytime an active purge is being applied to a system in or around equipment associated with work.  [2]
