H2S which stands for “hydrogen sulfide,” is a dangerous gas that appears as the by-product result of natural gas drilling, crude oil drilling, and also due to various industrial processes such as petroleum refining, tanning, wood pulp processing, mining, sugar-beet processing, rayon manufacturing, and hot-asphalt paving. Since this is one of the most poisonous, corrosive, and flammable gases faced in the workplace, it is very essential that those who work in areas possessing risks of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2s) are equipped with H2S Awareness training.
The telltale sign of H2S gas presence is a repulsive, colorless, and rotten-egg odor at low concentrations. The gas becomes flammable and highly toxic at levels of high concentration. Even 1 or 2 breaths may make a victim unconscious.
This course has been best designed for personnel working in zones such as oil, gas, geothermal, and petrochemical or areas with the possibility of the presence of H2S gas and it exceeds Workplace Exposure Limits. The course delivers the participants with the knowledge of identifying the presence of H2S and the further actions to do in order to keep themselves and other co-workers to be protected. This Hydrogen Sulphide (H₂S) online Awareness training serves as the perfect alternative to traditional classroom training and helps organizations with H2S hazard risks to have a safe work environment.
