Multiple industries use hydrogen sulphide (H2S), including manufacturing factories, refineries, food processing, mining operations, and sewage services. Employees exposed to this gas can get irritated eyes, nose and throat, while more moderate cases can result in headaches, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. Higher levels of exposure can cause shock, convulsions, coma, and death.
Undertaking our H2S training means your company, including both workers and management, will understand how to assess and control H2S exposure, the importance of protective equipment, how to detect H2S and how to respond to it. We’ll also help you understand the properties, health hazards and potential sources of this gas. In doing so, you’ll ensure your employees are safe and know how to work with and around H2S while also adhering to regulation standards.
