H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide) is a deadly or highly poisonous gas that is found in the nature especially in Oil & Gas industry. This can be created by natural biological process or human activity. As this gas is extremely toxic and corrosive, it poses a serious threat to human as well assets. Hence, everyone who works or visits oil & gas industry should have knowledge about the H2S gas hazards and risks and skills to respond to an H2S emergency.

The H2S Safety training covers the characteristics of hydrogen sulphide gas and the potential physiological effects due to gas exposure, use of H2S detection and monitoring equipment, their limitations and safe use various breathing apparatus.

Our H2S / SCBA Safety Awareness course covers…

  • What is Hydrogen Sulphide?
  • Where do we find H2S gas?
  • Properties and characteristics of hydrogen sulfide
  • What are PEL, STEL and IDLH of H2S?
  • The physiological effects of exposure to hydrogen sulfide
  • How to detect hydrogen sulphide
  • Various H2S detection / monitoring systems
  • Types of respiratory equipment
  • Donning and Doffing of SCBA, Workline unit and Escape Device
