National Industrial Training Institute


Believing in the importance of developing the human resources, which is one of the most important factors for institutions’ success, the Institute has been keen to establish short technical courses in the disciplines it offers, which targeting administrative staff, engineers and technicians in the oil and gas sector.

Course Overview

H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide) is a gas that can be created by natural biological
processes or by human activity and poses a serious threat to people or
assets because of its extremely toxic and corrosive properties. It is important,
therefore, for all personnel working in the construction industry, sewage and
water treatment plants, and oil & gas facilities to be competent in emergency
response training and become aware of the necessary practices to stay and
work in an environment with potential exposure to the H2S gas. This training
will cover the characteristics of Hydrogen Sulfide gas and the potential
physiological effects of exposure as well as the use of H2S detection equipment
and escape breathing apparatus.

Who Should Attend?

Any personnel working in a water – chemical treatment facility, Oil and Gas
industry, industrial areas and construction areas.

Enabling Objectives:

  • Introduction TO H2S Gas
  • Other names used to describe H2S
  • Hydrogen Sul-de H2S properties & characteristics
  • Where H2S can be located
  • Parts per million (ppm) as a measurement parameter
  • Factors affecting individual susceptibility to H2S
  • Hazard associated with H2S
  • Occupational exposure limits to H2S
  • Safety Signs ( as color)
  • H2S alarms and gas detector.
  • Protection from H2S
  • Detection of H2S
  • Escape
  • Rescue
  • Recovery
  • Practical Assessment : Donning & operating (including checks) an escape breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a mask within 30 seconds
    a. Stage 1: Trial
    b. Stage 2: Actual
    c. Stage 3: Final exercise and timing

* During each stage the course will go over checking the condition of breathing apparatus before use, checking for any defects/damages, gauges and pressure. After that, the participants will be taught how to return the breathing apparatus to the box.
