H2S CertificationC2

H2S Hydrogen Sulfide Training | Your Safety Department


(Length: 4-5 hours)

The attendee to the class will become familiar with the dangers associated with entering into and working safely in an H2S environment. The key objective is to educate the participant about the physical and chemical properties, toxicity, concentration levels, personal protective equipment use, detection measures, rescue, and first aid.

The attendee will be required to successfully complete a written evaluation of the information presented during this training session in accordance with the ANSI/ASSE Z390.1—2017 Standard.


This course is designed for personnel with "hands-on" work on and around equipment which may be exposed to an H2S environment. Common locations are oil and gas facilities, rigs, sewer systems, refineries, gas plants, land-fills, waste water treatment plants and compressor stations.
