H2S Awareness (English)


Available in English.

Course Description

This intuitive online training course is designed to provide information which is required to properly recognize, assess, and control hazards associated with H2S gas. 

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is a gas commonly found during the drilling and production of crude oil and natural gas, plus in wastewater treatment and utility facilities and sewers. The gas is produced as a result of the microbial breakdown of organic materials in the absence of oxygen. Colorless, flammable, poisonous and corrosive, H2S gas is noticeable by its rotten egg smell. With toxicity similar to carbon monoxide, which prevents cellular respiration, monitoring and early detection of H2S could mean the difference between life and death.

Our online training is perfect for any individual or business who may require knowledge of H2S gas for employment. Throughout the course participants will learn about the properties of H2S, the health hazards which are associated with exposure, the detection and monitoring methods, and acceptable exposure limits.
