Hydrogen Sulfide

About the Course

In this online course, you will learn about a chemical that millions of people are exposed to in their work environment every day: hydrogen sulfide. This chemical can occur naturally, as well as in man-made processes. Hydrogen sulfide poses a wide range of hazards to exposed workers, from mild health effects (such as eye irritation) to death. Hydrogen sulfide exposure often claims more than one victim, since unprotected individuals attempt to rescue fallen co-workers, friends, or relatives, and subsequently die themselves. As a result, you should receive hydrogen sulfide training when you first begin work in an area known to contain hydrogen sulfide In this eLearning course, the participant will learn the hazards of hydrogen sulfide, detection and exposure reduction methods, and appropriate responses in an emergency involving hydrogen sulfide.
