The Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) Awareness course is suitable for all employees in the oil and gas industry, particularly those working on offshore installations or a sour crude facility.
Developed by the same industry experts responsible for the OPITO guidelines on Working in Hazardous or Potentially Hazardous Environments, this course provides a concise insight into H2S – its principal properties, associated dangers, and the detrimental consequences of exposure.
Upon successful completion of the course, the candidates will be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of H2S measurement, detection and action to take in the event of an H2S emergency. Including interactive exercises, this course will equip your staff with the necessary awareness to protect themselves from one of the most dangerous gases in the oil and gas industry.
A lack of awareness of the risks associated with hydrogen sulphide (H2S) could result in serious workplace accidents. This course aims to help candidates recognise the dangers and prevent such incidents.
- Explain what H2S is
- Identify where H2S can be found
- Identify the properties of H2S
- Explain how H2S levels are measured
- Identify the exposure limits of H2S
- Describe the exposure effects of H2S
- Identify environmental hazards of H2S
- Identify ways of detecting H2S
- Know what to do in the event of an H2S emergency
- Identify what H2S training consists of
The course outlines the principal properties of hydrogen sulphide, explaining why extreme caution is necessary when dealing with this highly dangerous substance and how to recognise the consequences and symptoms of exposure to it.
The duration of the course is 30 minutes with a 20 question final assessment.
