H2S Course

What is online H2S training?

H2S Awareness training is finally available online. This course is designed for all industries, from Oil and Gas, to Utilities, Petrochemical, Pulp and Paper, Upgrading and Nuclear Power Generation. This course meets OH&S requirements for theory training for H2S. Companies choose this course to provide awareness to staff who will not be expected to rescue a co-worker from an H2S environment. Alternatively, it can also be used as Part 1 of blended training where the employer plans to teach the Part 2 practical training at a later date.

Why is H2S training important?

Hydrogen Sulphide is fatal with even a single breath in concentrations above .07%, to put this into perspective, much of the western Canadian Sedimentary Basin has concentrations of 1% or more. Fields containing up to 45% are common along the Rockies. The biggest mistake untrained worker make, is overestimating their abilities to rescue a co worker. This typically leads to multiple fatalities.

What will I learn?

After you finish the course, you can contact us for a 30 minute skills assessment (additional charge will apply), and you will receive a practical training certificate that meets requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Code.

The activities completed in the optional practical skills portion are:

  1. Inspect and operate a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and a Supplied Air Breathing Apparatus
