Overview & Objectives
The Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness course from Exceed Safety is an introductory-level online training designed to introduce participants to hydrogen sulfide, a colorless, flammable, and highly toxic gas. Shipped as a liquefied compressed gas, hydrogen sulfide has a distinct rotten egg odor.
It is a by-product of many industrial practices including petroleum refining, tanning, mining, wood pulp processing, rayon manufacturing, sugar beet processing, and even hot asphalt paving. Participants will learn the basics of working around this dangerous but useful and common chemical in the Manufacturing sector.
Exceed Safety’s Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness training teaches basic safety awareness tips for working around hydrogen sulfide in Manufacturing. Participants can expect to discuss the background, health hazard summary, and OSHA best practices for working with this chemical. Specific course topics include the following:
- Means of exposure
