Protect the health of your workers by training with Summit's Hydrogen Sulfide Safety program. Hydrogen sulfide is an extremely toxic, colorless, flammable gas with a characteristic "rotten egg" smell when present in small concentrations.
Repeated exposure to high levels of hydrogen sulfide can result in chronic poisoning that can lead to memory loss, paralysis of the facial muscles, nerve tissue damage, and eye tissue diseases. Exposure to very high concentrations may result in collapse, coma, and death from respiratory failure, even in very brief exposures.
Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in crude petroleum, natural gas, and can also result from bacterial breakdown of organic matter. The best safety practices presented in this program are ideal for persons working in the petrochemical, natural gas, utilities, wastewater treatment, paper and pulp, and other related industries who face risk of exposure to this gas.
Summit's Hydrogen Sulfide Safety provides a comprehensive guide to working safely with H2S in its gas and liquid forms. Topics covered include:
Includes facilitator guide, quiz, employee handbooks, and a PowerPoint™ presentation.
