Section 1: Introduction to this course, this Module provides an overview of the course

This Chapter is an H2S overview, in this section we will discuss, H2S Properties, H2S Formation, Where H2S is Found, H2S in History, and H2S Statistics.

Section 2: Chapter 1 Module 1

In Module one, we discuss the specific properties of H2S. H2S is flammable and explosive, it is highly corrosive and it is extremely toxic.

Section 3: Chapter 1 Module 2

In Module 2, we will look at how H2S is formed, and how it came to be present at the worksite. H2S is formed naturally, as well as created chemically as part of industrial processes.

Section 4: Chapter 1 Module 3

In Module 3, we review the most common locations where H2S is found at industrial sites. This includes the typically places where it is released as a fugitive emission, where it tends to collect and what processes produce it.

Section 5: Chapter 1 Module 4

This Module reviews case studies in the past and explains why humans are endangered by the gas.

Section 6: Chapter 1 Module 5

In Module 5 we look at how training, and modern safety equipment has led to a decrease in the number of fatalities from H2S.

Section 7: Chapter 2 Module 1

In this chapter, we’ll cover the following topics, Atmospheric Hazards, Hazard Assessment, Occupational and Industrial Hygiene, The Hazard Control Hierarchy, and Legislated Responsibilities.

Section 8: Chapter 2 Module 2

Module 2 discusses controlling hazards related to hydrogen sulphide.

Section 9: Chapter 2 Module 3

In Module 3 you will learn what a hygienist is, and the techniques that they use to sample an atmosphere, and design a plan to protect you at your work site.

Section 10: Chapter 2 Module 4

Module 4 looks at common techniques that can be used to help reduce the risk of working around H2S. The hazards assessment hyerarchy is applied to hydrogen sulphide hazards.

Section 11: Chapter 2 Module 5

In Module 5 we will review the typical requirements most legal jurisdictions have regarding H2S in the workplace.

Section 12: Chapter 3 Module 1

In Chapter Three, we review the Personal Protective Equipment needed for H2S Environments. This includes General Requirement for PPE, Types of Respiratory PPE, Advantages and Disadvantages of Respiratory PPE, Selecting the Correct Respiratory PPE and Preparing for Operation of Respiratory PPE.

Section 13: Chapter 3 Module 2

This module provides a comprehensive overview of SCBA Self Contained Breathing Apparatus, and SABA Supplied Air Breathing Apparatus. The section review the steps for use in details, and inspection requirements.

Section 14: Chapter 3 Module 3

Module 3 reviews the advantages and disadvantages of using SCBA and SABA.


Module 4 discusses Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health and non IDLH environments and how this dictates what type of Respiratory Protection equipment is required.


Module 5 looks at the steps to properly don a SCBA or a SABA.


In this chapter, we’ll cover the following topics, H2S Measurements, Safe Working Limits, Detection Devices, and

Sampling a H2S atmosphere.


In Module 2 the course reviews safe working limits for H2S exposure. This includes Time Weighted Averages. TWA, Short Term Exposure Limits STEL as well as the Occupational Exposure Limits OEL.


Module 3 discusses electronic gas detectors and tube type sampling pumps. The parts of a gas detector are reviewed, the operation, the limitations and function test vs calibration. Also discussed are detector tubes, and the inspection, limitations, and operation.


In module 4 we review sampling timelines, such as intermitten and continuous sampling, and how to sample a large area.


In this Module , we’ll cover emergency scene management and the steps to take when there is an H2S emergency. The strategy that is outlines as effective as the Seven Step Initial Response Strategy covered in the Enform H2S Alive program.
