Introduction

 

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) affects workers in the oil and gas industry as well as mining and sewage, landfills, laboratories and public utilities and is a by-product formed when organic matter decays.

 

Because hydrogen sulfide is so deadly dangerous, OSHA requires your employer to follow certain safety standards, such as monitoring the air in your work space and providing  engineering controls. 

 

It is important for you to know how to protect yourself from hydrogen sulfide.  This training will help you recognize the hazards and follow specific procedures so that  you can work around H2S safely.
