Curso Practicas seguras de trabajo en ambientes con H2S

Safe practices in H2S environments

El H2S, sulphidric acid or hydrogen sulfide, is a flammable, colorless gas, having a characteristic smell of rotten eggs, commonly known as hydrosulphuric acid o sewer gas. It may affect the sense of smell and, at high concentrations, to cause death. For these reasons, training in protection against H2S is critical in every industry where it may be present, as it happens in drilling and oil and producing operations.

Contents: Introduction (definition and physical properties). Hydrogen sulfide presence. Health hazard measurement. Hydrogen sulfide prevention and control. Emergency plans. Product Safety spreadsheet. Exercises.
Goal: The course is addressed to drilling operating staff, workover and/or well service (wireline, coiled tubing, snubbing). It aims to alerting and training in knowing H2S danger and hazards, in recommended practices, and in operating detection and protective equipment to be used.
Duration: 1 day.
