This H2S Emergency Response Training Course, teaches you how to stay Alive in an emergency. This course is designed for Oil and Gas workers, Industrial workers, Utilities, Pulp and Paper Mills, Fire Fighters, Emergency Responders and Technical People who work in Labs containing H2S.
The course reviews the properties of H2S, effects on health, how to protect yourself with respiratory protection, how to detect the gas, using electronic monitors, and tube type detectors. Responding to an high concentration exposure is also covered, including first aid steps and how to conduct a rescue.
The course consists of a series of video clips that are shot in actual H2S locations. They walk you through what you need to know. At the end of the course there is a exam, and you will receive a certificate that qualifies you to work around H2S.
The course takes about 3 hours to completed.

Conclusion and Test
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.
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.
In Module 5 we look at how training, and modern safety equipment has led to a decrease in the number of fatalities from H2S.
In this chapter, we’ll cover the following topics, Atmospheric Hazards, Hazard Assessment, Occupational and Industrial Hygiene, The Hazard Control Hierarchy, and Legislated Responsibilities.
Module 2 discusses controlling hazards related to hydrogen sulphide.
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.
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.
Hello, I am an experienced industrial safety instructor from Canada. The first 7 years of my working life, were spent in the Industrial Sector and oil and gas. Because of my interest in Rock Climbing and Caving, I pursued training in First Aid Instruction and Rope Rescue. This led to me adding various safety certifications, H2S Alive Instructor Certification, OSSA Confined Space Entry and Monitor, OSSA Fall Protection and Confined Space Rescue.
