By 2013, the number of shale oil wells in Saskatchewan rocketed from a mere 75 in 2004 to nearly 3000, bringing with them jobs, profit, and an increased risk of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) hazards. Meanwhile, in just under a ten-year span, Canadian industries including oil and gas, water treatment, and pulp and paper, reported 117 H2S release incidents. While H2S is a naturally occurring toxic gas, it’s also one that can be a by-product of industrial production, and one with incidents on the rise.

H2S at high enough concentrations may kill in seconds, but it doesn’t have to. Protect yourself, your employees, and your business by ensuring your workforce understands the dangers of H2S and the controls necessary to reduce the risk of exposure by taking SafetyVantage’s newly released online Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Awareness course.

This course is designed for those who work in and around environments where H2S may be present, and provides in-depth details about H2S and its effects, the importance of mitigating its hazards, and how to respond effectively in the event of an incident. Packed with industry insight, best practices, and an array of applicable information, SafetyVantage’s Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Awareness course is a robust educational piece for understanding H2S and the concerns it brings to the workplace.

The course covers:

  • Defining and locating H2S
  • The properties of H2S
  • H2S roles and responsibilities
  • Identifying and assessing H2S hazards
  • Health and safety hazards
  • Chronic and acute exposure
  • Controlling H2S hazards
  • Emergency response &  rescue
SafetyVantage Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Awareness Course

When employees know how to prevent risks, mitigate hazards, and keep themselves safe, especially when they’re alone, they’re motivated to do their job, and do it safely. This course is developed for workers, is delivered online, and includes interactive exercises and quizzes. Once a learner successfully completes the course a training certificate is issued online.
