Hydrogen sulfide is a leading cause of inhalation-related deaths in the workplace. It's toxic, flammable, and can even be explosive. It often cannot be detected with your senses alone. If your employees are at risk of exposure and don't know how to protect themselves, hydrogen sulfide can be a dangerous killer.
Hydrogen Sulfide: Detect and Defend identifies the dangers of hydrogen sulfide and shows employees how to defend themselves against the hazards of exposure. The course describes how hydrogen sulfide is produced, its chemical properties and how to respond to its health and safety hazards. Hazard prevention strategies are identified and finally, the course shows how to avoid exposure by using personal protective equipment.
