Safety Training Course

Enform H2S Alive

What is H2S?

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.

Why is H2S training important?

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.

What will I learn?

  • H2S Theory
  • H2S Measurement
  • Health Hazards
  • Gas Detection
  • Gas Monitor Function Test and Bump Test
  • Calibrating a Monitor
  • Protecting yourself using Respiratory Protection Equipment
  • Donning and Inspecting SCBA and SABA
  • H2S Emergency Response Planning

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
  2. Function Test an Electronic Monitor
  3. Participate in a Rescue of a Casualty in an H2S Situation.

This course is designed to be similar to other industry standard H2S Training Courses.
