This course shows workers how to work safely in and around hydrogen sulfide (H2S) environments. H2S is a naturally occurring gas. It is often referred to as sour gas, acid gas, stink damp, or sulphurated hydrogen. H2S is colorless, heavier than air in its pure state, and extremely toxic. It can also deaden your sense of smell. In low concentrations, it has a rotten egg smell and causes eye and throat irritation. At higher concentrations, it can cause death. For these reasons, training in how to protect yourself is crucial in any industry where H2S might be encountered.
This one-day course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to help them identify and detect H2S, mitigate the hazards of working in an H2S environment, and respond to an incident involving an H2S release. It includes both theory and practical application exercises.
- Properties and initial response strategies for H2S environments.
- Toxic effects of H2S.
- Common locations of H2S.
- Types of respiratory protective equipment (SCUBA, SABA)
- Operation and reading of detector tube devices.
- Operation of self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Rescue techniques and rescue breathing.
- Analysis of hydrogen sulfide case studies.
