H2S Awareness

Course Overview

Overview

Hydrogen
sulphide (H2S) is a highly toxic and flammable gas, and exposure to very high
concentrations can quickly lead to death. This course explains the properties
of hydrogen sulphide, identifies control measures, and provides a practical
description of what to do in the event of exposure.

 

The
risk of H2S exposure exists in many industries, including, but not limited to
oil and gas, pulp and paper,

construction,
and mining. In such workplaces, all
workers should have H2S Awareness training. Workers who are at risk of exposure
to H2S and/or workers with rescue responsibilities also require H2S Alive and
workplace-specific training.
