OPITO-Certified ‘Basic H2S Training’, contact time: 4-hours

H2S is a highly toxic gas formed by the de-composition of organic animal and / or vegetable materials by bacteria. It is found in natural oil and gas, sewers, and cesspools (stagnant water) such as found in swamps and is produced in a variety of industrial and biological processes.

Each participant shall be qualified to receive a Certificate and Training ID card, valid for 2 years. Certificate is recognized within worldwide offshore industry.

During the training programme, the candidates will gain a basic level of knowledge and competency for working in an environment with the potential for H2S exposure.

Candidates will be required to demonstrate their skills and the level of knowledge and understanding of the following key areas:

Candidates will explain/identify
- Hydrogen Sulphide (how it is formed & where it is found)
- Other names used to describe H2S
- Properties & characteristics of H2S
- Parts per million (ppm) as a measurement parameter
- Occupational exposure limits to H2S
- Factors affecting individual susceptibility to H2S
- Types of detector equipment
- Types of respiratory equipment
- Pre-use checks of personal detection devices and EBA

Candidates will demonstrate
- Operating personal H2S detection equipment (including checks)
- Responding to an alarm
- Donning & operating (including checks) an escape breathing apparatus (EBA) with a mask within 30 seconds
- Donning & operating (including checks) an EBA with a hood within 30 seconds
- Connecting to a cascade breathing system
- Disconnecting from a cascade breathing system

Training program comes with a competency test at end of session.

1. Candidates donning ELSA breathing set (Emergency Life Saving Apparatus)

2. Candidates donning SABA breathing set (Supply Air Breathing Apparatus)

3. Candidates ‘hook-up’ SABA breathing set onto manifold connected to ‘Cascaded Air System’

4. Candidates get competent with use of PDS (Portable Detection System)
