For students who may be exposed to the highly toxic gas Hydrogen Sulfide at the workplace, we offer a Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness training course that can be completed entirely online using a computer with an internet connection.

Training on the subject of Hydrogen Sulfide, or H2S, is essential for all oil and gas workers who could be exposed to H2S during the course of their work activities.

This training helps fulfill the training requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and 1926, ANSI Z390.1, Accepted Practices for Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Training Programs, and other regulatory standards.

Keep in mind that while this course provides information on the hazards of the gas, as well as ways to prevent and respond to exposure, you may require additional training in the use of company specific protective equipment and procedures. Training in equipment use and procedures should be provided by your employer and specific to your worksite.

Wallet ID Option

This training comes with an optional PVC ID card with an optional Photo Wallet ID for an additional $5.00 if selected at the time of enrollment. To do so, just select the course that is priced at $24.95. Adding this option later will cost an additional $10.00.

Continuing Education Credits

Per the California Department of Public Health, this course is approved for 2 Contact Hours (0.2 CEUs) of Continuing Education (CE). While these CE units are intended for Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS) in California, they are often transferred to other accrediting bodies. Please check with your specific agency for more details and to learn if your agency accepts this course for CE credit (Public Health Accreditation #044).

Additional Training

When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job. If you are required to use specific equipment at your job site, you must be trained to use that equipment prior to using it at the job site.

If your employer utilizes specific engineering and administrative controls, safe work practices, or has specific emergency plans related to hydrogen sulfide emergencies, you must be made aware of and trained in these practices and your role in the execution of the emergency plans.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.

Mobile Version Tablet Smart Phone HTML 5 The Future

We're excited to announce that this course is now available in HTML 5, making it more compatible with the browser on your mobile device (e.g., smartphone or tablet). Many of our existing courses are presented using Adobe Flash Player and require additional software that may not be available on your mobile device. By comparison, this course requires only the most recent version of your mobile device's web browser.

Mobile Pros and Cons

Mobile versions of this sort of training are new, but below are some Pros and Cons that we have noticed during our extensive testing.

  • No computer needed
  • Tablet mobility
  • Tablet screen graphics
  • Smartphone screens can be too small to see
  • Mobile browsers react differently than computer browsers
  • Phone calls can interrupt training

During our testing we noticed that tablets work much better than smartphones, simply due to their screen size. The newer the device, the better the result. We are also aware that the course will not work on the first generation iPad, nor older Android Tablets. The best way to see how it works on your device is to click on the DEMO button on this page.

Growing Pains

Because this is a Beta version of our course, you may encounter some issues as we work out the kinks. If you have difficulties with this course, please contact Customer Support.

Your Mobile Browser

While HTML5 makes taking this course on mobile devices possible, not all mobile browsers are optimized for HTML5, meaning you may not have complete functionality. If you have difficulty taking this course using the browser on your mobile device, you may need to use a different browser.

Test the functionality of your browser using HTML5 and compare it to the performance of other browsers. If you find other browsers are more compatible than your own, you may want to make the switch.

NOTE The Mobile Beta only applies to the H2S Course, and NOT the OSHA 10 Hour courses, for those who purchase the package deals.
