This course provides an overview of how to work safely with H²S. Topics covered are H²S formation chemistry and physical properties, personal protective equipment, precautions to take when working with H²S and effective rescue and first aid techniques where/when required. Participants must complete and pass this course to receive their record of training (ROT).
