Hydrogen Sulphide, also known as h2s or “sour gas,” is a gas that occurs naturally underground when organic matter, like soil, is allowed to decompose without the presence of oxygen. The oil industries of Calgary and Edmonton in Alberta, in Nova Scotia, BC, and Newfoundland are especially prone to exposure to this “marsh gas.”
Hydrogen Sulphide gas inhalation is fatal. Even the minutest level of inhalation will result in serious psychological and physical effects. That’s why high quality training through online Hydrogen Sulphide software is so very crucial. This online learning program will discuss safety measures like the Self Contained Breathing Apparatus or SCBA, CPR procedures, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and other important federal and provincial regulations. Course topics include:
- Hydrogen Sulphide: It’s a Killer Gas
- Hazard Detection and Exposure Limits: How Much is Too Much?
- Hydrogen Sulphide in the Oil and Gas Industry
- Personal Protective Measures
- Contingency Plans and Rescue Response including First Aid
- Safe Job Procedures
Who Needs Hydrogen Sulphide Training?
H2S exposure can cause immediate and life-threatening injury. This type of training should not be taken lightly. Employees who work in the oil and gas industries in regions such as Alberta, Calgary, Edmonton, or Nova Scotia must complete Hydrogen Sulphide training to prepare them for a contingency plan and Immediate Danger to Life and Health, or IDLH, exposure procedures.
Please note: Upon successful completion of this online course, a certificate will be generated and will require a signature by a competent person verifying the hands-on practical evaluation. This evaluation must be performed at the workplace of the person requiring certification.
