Our course begins with a comprehensive but simple presentation on H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide) gas including it’s properties, exposure limits, health hazards and your initial response strategy. Your training will also include an introduction to Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (Fire Fighter Air Pack). During this part of the course, you will lean how to do a pre-use inspection, how to operate the equipment and training in after-use inspection.
You will then receive in gas detection, which will require you to operate a manual gas detector and also gain an understanding of how electronic detectors work. Safety training with gas detection is very important for oilfield operations and an important part of your H2S training.
You will also learn various rescue techniques on how best to lift, drag, or carry a casualty to a safe area. You will be required to perform at least four basic rescue techniques for your certification. These techniques will include a one-person drag, a two-person drag, a two-arm drag and finally a two-person carry.
Finally you will be presented with a case study of a mock situation in which you and or other students will do your best to solve a problem involving an H2S gas knock down. The last part of your certification will involve a simple 26 question quiz of which most are multiple choice.
Completion of required components of H2S training will earn you an H2S Alive temporary training certificate.
