H2S Training

Entry Criteria: Personnel that are, or could be working in an environment
that could become contaminated by H2S gas can attend the course. The
participant must be medically fit to undergo H2S training.

Course duration: 0.5 day

Course description:

The emergency response competency requirements as per
OPITO standards and provides the training required for personnel working in
potential H2S environments.
This course covers the characteristics of Hydrogen sulphide gas, potential
physiological effects of exposure as well as the use of H2S equipment and
escape breathing apparatus.

Course Objectives:

The objective of this course is to ensure that the participants gain the required
knowledge and understanding of the particular hazards and properties of H2S,
and appropriate emergency response actions to take should a H2S related
incident arise.

On successful completion of the training, the participants will be able to explain:

* Hydrogen Sulphide – how it is formed and when it is found
* Other names used to describe H2S
* Properties and characteristics of H2S
* Parts per million (ppm) as a measurement parameter
* Occupational exposure limits to H2S
* Factors affecting individual susceptibility to H2S
* Types of detector equipment
* Types of respiratory equipment
* Pre-use checks of personal detection devices and emergency breathing apparatus (EBA)

On successful completion of the training, the participants will be able to demonstrate:

* Donning and operating (including checks) an escape breathing apparatus (EBA) with a mask within 30 seconds.
* Connecting to a pressurized cascade breathing system with an activated EBA which has been donned correctly.
* Disconnecting from a pressurized cascade breathing system with an activated EBA which has been donned correctly
