Compliance Solutions offers the most complete and comprehensive online hydrogen sulfide safety awareness training course available in the industry today! Our online course meets or exceeds ANSI and OSHA standards for hydrogen sulfide training programs. Our course FAR surpasses the competition for quality & completeness. This online training was developed to provide students a comprehensive overview of hydrogen sulfide safety and the effects on employees in the workplace. Increasing your awareness of the occurrence of natural and industrial hydrogen sulfide hazards will better equip you to deal with H2S hazards. This is important because hydrogen sulfide exposure has a high mortality rate. H2S Complete allows you to proceed at your own pace to complete this comprehensive, interactive and fully online course.
Due to the large number of documented fatalities among workers and would-be rescuers, Compliance Solutions and ANSI have identified a clear need for specialized training to address the occupational hazards from Hydrogen Sulfide. This includes any employees who are exposed or potentially exposed to hydrogen sulfide.
A higher risk of exposure to hydrogen sulfide exists in a number of major industries, including:
- Gas and oil exploration;
- Gas and oil processing and refining;
- General Industry
Workers at a higher risk of exposure to hydrogen sulfide include:
- Oil and natural gas workers who extract and/or refine crude oil and natural gas;
- Wastewater and sanitation workers who clean or maintain sewers and septic tanks; and
- Farm workers who clean manure storage tanks or work in manure pits.
The purpose of this course is to ensure awareness and promote safety among employees who may be exposed to hydrogen sulfide on-the-job. The objective is to ensure that employees operate in the safest possible manner in locations where contact with hydrogen sulfide, or its byproducts, is possible.
At the conclusion of the course, students should be able to:
- Describe the properties and characteristics of hydrogen sulfide
- Identify the common locations where hydrogen sulfide may be present
- Name symptoms of hydrogen sulfide exposure and describe the potential acute and chronic health effects
- Distinguish the important elements involved in preparing for incidents involving hydrogen sulfide
Understand and document how to respond to a hydrogen sulfide exposure or release
Completion Instructions, Requirements, and Checklist
Per ANSI/ASSE, students must complete a minimum of 4 hours (self-paced) training online, and pass a graded final exam with a score of 70% or higher.
- Duration: 4-6 Hours Minimum 4 Hours
- Prerequisites: None
This online certification course meets the 4-hour minimum training requirement for hydrogen sulfide training programs per ANSI/ASSE Z390.1-2010 Section 7.2: Accepted Practices for Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Training Programs and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200, Hazard Communications.
Hydrogen Sulfide Safety Awareness Certification
Upon completion of this course, you will receive a certificate and wallet ID card for verification at worksites that require awareness-level ANSI certification. The certification also denotes training under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200 – Hazard Communications. This comprehensive course covers BOTH standards.
Retraining of Hydrogen Sulfide Safety Awareness Certification
Per ANSI/ASSE Z390.1-2010, Section 6.2:“Due to the extreme hazards involved in H2S operations, each individual covered by this standard should be trained annually.”
