Hydrogen Sulfide Safety For The Oil,
Gas And Petrochemical Industries
The latest release in its Oil and Gas safety programs Moxie Media provides this program to educate oilfield employees and contractors on how to recognize when Hydrogen Sulfide is present in their work area and to introduce the precautions necessary to work with Hydrogen Sulfide safely. Moxie Media presents this information to help fulfill the training requirements of API Recommended Practice 49, ANSI Z390.1 and other international regulatory standards.
Divided into nine modules this program runs 30 minutes in length and is available at a cost of $ 375. As with all Moxie Media programs a written and illustrated Student and Facilitator workbook, complete with test questions, is included in this powerful training package.
Hydrogen Sulfide is a very serious hazard, which requires rigorous training, periodic drills, pre-planning, and special work precautions. In most cases it is not a hazardous well or plant operation that leads to H2S exposure and worker deaths. Dangerous procedures which result in high releases of H2S are usually anticipated and contingency plans are well laid out. Many more deaths have occurred during routine unplanned tasks such as tank checking, entering and cleaning. Other hazardous locations include preload tanks, spud cans, and columns on semis or submersible rigs. No matter what the location anticipate a hazardous Hydrogen Sulfide environment and plan for it.
All personnel including employees, service company hands, and contractors, working in an area where concentrations of Hydrogen Sulfide or sulfur Dioxide may reach or exceed OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits shall be provided with training prior to beginning the work assignment. Companies are responsible for the training of their own employees by a qualified Hydrogen Sulfide Safety Instructor. Dates, instructors, attendees, and subjects for all personnel training sessions should be documented and appropriate records retained by the employer for a minimum of one year.
Additional topics covered in this program include: Properties of H2S, H2S Locations, Health Hazards, Initial Response Strategy, Approved Respiratory Protective Equipment, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), Supplied Air Breathing Apparatus (SABA), Pre-Use Inspection of Breathing Apparatus, Wearing and Operating Breathing Apparatus, After-Use Inspection of Breathing Apparatus, Detector Tube Devices, Operating Detector Tube Devices, Electronic Monitors, and Rescue Techniques.
