H2S Safety Awareness & SCBA Training Course

H2S Safety Awareness & SCBA Training Course

The training program has been designed keeping in mind the need for awareness regarding H2S gas. The course seeks to provide participants with the information that is need to properly identify, evaluate and regulate any hazards that are associated with H2S or hydrogen sulphide.

What is hydrogen sulphide?

The hydrogen sulphide is a flammable and an extremely hazardous gas. If you have smelled a rotten egg then that is how it exactly smells. The colorless gas is also commonly known by names such as sewer gas, swamp gas and even manure gas. H2S is found naturally in crude petroleum and natural gas.

What the course entails?
Course participants besides being introduced to the properties of the gas itself will also be made aware of the hazards associated with exposure, detection and the methods that can be used to review what the acceptable exposure limits are.

Candidates will also be taught about the personal breathing apparatus, emergency planning and rescue methods that can be utilized to assist victims who are overexposed to the H2S gas. The idea of the course is to make the participants independent and aware on how to help them first before they can help others.
An integral part of the course is to teach workers particularly those working in the oil and gas industry sector to learn about the basic first aid techniques that will protect them from hazardous situations that may arise in such industries. These include rescue breathing and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) – very important aspects that need to be taught for those in the industry. The course seeks to make participants understand how and when to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This includes the self-contained breathing apparatus and the supplied air breathing apparatus.

The course also offers information to candidates on the hazards that can be caused by the inhalation of the H2S gas and the techniques to prevent and react when exposed to the gas. Special training is required for participants to use the specialized protective equipment and procedures. The training on how to use the equipment and procedure needs to be provided for by the employers at the site of the work.
