H2S Awareness Course Overview
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a highly toxic and flammable gas, and exposure to 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 at risk of exposure to H2S and/or workers with rescue responsibilities also require H2S Alive and workplace-specific training.
Upon completion of the H2S Awareness course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize H2S as a highly toxic gas
- Describe the properties of H2S and workplace environments where H2S may be found
- Understand the possible symptoms of exposure to both low and high concentrations
- Understand that exposure to high concentrations can lead to unconsciousness and death within minutes, or even seconds
- Identify potential long-term effects associated with H2S exposure
- Provide examples of engineering controls, administrative controls, and PPE that can be used to protect workers from H2S exposure
- Identify various types of H2S monitoring devices and tools
- Know how to respond appropriate in a situation involving H2S exposure
- Self-paced online course
- Participants may leave and resume the course at any time
- Course includes interactive activities to reinforce key concepts
- Average course completion time is about 1 hour
