ABOUT H2S
H2S is a naturally occurring gas. It is often referred to as sour gas, acid gas, stink damp, or sulphurated hydrogen. H2S is colourless, heavier than air in its pure state, and extremely toxic. It can deaden your sense of smell; however, in low concentrations it has a rotten egg smell and causes eye and throat irritation. At higher concentrations is can also cause death.

For these reasons, training in how to protect yourself is crucial in any industry where H2S might be encountered. This course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to help them identify and detect H2S, mitigate the hazards of working in an H2S environment, and respond to an incident involving an H2S release. It includes both theory and practical application exercises.
