The dangers of working with slurry are well documented. When agitated or pumped high amounts of gases are released very quickly the most dangerous of which is Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S). A high concentration knocks out your sense of smell, causing difficulty in breathing, then disorientation. After only a few breaths, collapse and death can occur.
