Our H2S course is designed for workers who may be exposed to hydrogen sulphide during the course of their work. People working in the
oil & gas industry, wastewater/sewage, mining or farming would all benefit from this training.
The Online training video takes approximately 3 hours to complete, and contains a variety of video segments and activities. The activities are designed to ensure competence. 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.
Each student receives a manual and you must pass a written test at the conclusion of the course. You will be issued a permanent training certificate that is valid for three years.
This course is required for most oil and gas sites. Hydrogen sulphide has been a problem in industrial settings since their beginning.
At most concentrations you cannot tell the difference between H2S and Air. It is invisible, tasteless, and deadens your sense of smell. It can be found in decaying organic matter on farms, waste treatment plants, in mines, and anywhere oil or gas is processed.
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.
The activities completed in the optional practical skills portion are:
This course is designed to be similar to other industry standard H2S Training Courses.
