What is H2s Alive?
H2S Alive targets awareness of workplace hazards in the oil and natural gas industries. To ensure that your employees stay up to date on WHMIS and other standards, certification expires after three years.
This course used to be known as ENFORM. Students must be of at least 16 years of age to participate in the program.
The H2S Alive program exposes petroleum industry employees to safety tips for handling hydrogen sulfide H2S. Keep your employees well and optimally functioning with demonstrations, coursework, and online learning. The course provides initial response strategies, rescue techniques, and other crucial case studies.
What is H2S?
Hydrogen Disulfide is a dangerous chemical. The chemical is a broad-spectrum poison targeting multiple systems in the body. The nervous system is the most affected.
Exposure to low levels of H2S results in irritation to the throat, cough, nausea, and shortness of breath. In extreme instances, death and a complete loss of breath are possible. The issues are known in the industrial space across the world from woodworkers in Russia and Finland to oil workers in Alberta.
Treatment is possible. The immediate inhalation of amyl nitrite, injections of sodium nitrite, and administration of bronchodilators help to overcome H2S poisoning.
Why should I care about employee safety?
Employee safety directly impacts your bottom line. In the United States alone, workplace incidents led to the loss of $55.4 billion USD.
The short-term effects of H2S while not fatal are extremely detrimental to productivity. Over the long term, the death of an employee is never desirable. You should never let an employee suffer.
