Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Hazard  Awareness Training Courses

H2S Awareness Training Requirements

OSHA and ANSI both recommend all workers in areas where there is a high potential for unsafe levels of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) gas receive initial training on H2S hazard identification and control methods. The online Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness course and the Annual Refresher training course below help employers and employees comply with these recommendations.

Workplaces where there is a reasonable potential for high levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas include, but are not limited to, the following operations:

  • Chemical plants
  • Mining operations
  • Oil and gas drilling operations
  • Oil and gas refineries
  • Rayon manufacturing operations
  • Tanning factories
  • Wood pulp and paper processing plants

The training must be initially provided to all workers upon assignment to jobs / tasks with a reasonably high exposure to Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), and must be repeated annually for all affected employees.

Important H2S Training Course Information

These Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) training courses are intended to help provide affected personnel with basic general knowledge to help protect themselves from unsafe levels of hydrogen sulfide exposures. Topics addressed include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Common characteristics, sources and associated health and safety hazards of hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
  • Signs and symptoms of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) exposure.
  • Types of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) detection methods, and applicable permissible exposure limits (PELs).
  • General work practices and procedures to protect against hydrogen sulfide (H2S) exposure.
  • Importance of knowing worksite-specific emergency action plans, locations of safety equipment, rescue techniques, and first-aid.
Students may log in and out of their H2S training courses at their own pace, and may even log in to their course from different computers and/or tablets . . . Students can also print their personalized training certificates upon successful completion of their course. 
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Employers may need to supplement these training courses with any and all training on site-specific safe work practices associated with H2S operations, as well as all required personal protective equipment (PPE) and site-specific policies and procedures. Worksite drills are highly recommended. Furthermore, these courses are not intended to provide and/or replace mandatory respiratory protection training that may be required for workers required to wear a respirator as part of their job, as this training must be site-specific and include hands-on practice donning and doffing their respirators.
