Annual Sodium Cyanide Safety Training


2023// 8am

This no-cost service boosts customers’ knowledge of sodium cyanide and its proper handling in heaps and tanks – as well as its safe detoxification and disposal at the end of the life cycle. We hope you can join us to take advantage of this important learning opportunity. Together we can help keep our facilities, people and communities safer!

The classroom training session will cover everything from basic facts about the material and how it’s used to hazard recognition and what to do in incidents involving sodium cyanide. From the convention center, we will travel to Cyanco’s Winnemucca plant, where we’ll enjoy a catered lunch, along with guided tours of the facility.

Guests are invited to join in a golf excursion afterwards at the Winnemucca golf course, courtesy of Cyanco.

  • Cyanide Characteristics and Risks
