Many work sites, whether within processing, manufacturing, construction or oil and gas, are contaminated by “sour gas”.  Take this H2S Alive Training Course – Energy Safety Canada with METI before you travel out west. Hydrogen sulfide, with the chemical composition of H2S, is a clear gas that can cause great sickness at low-level exposure and death at high exposure either by amount or time. Hydrogen sulfide can be found naturally and in industrial settings. It is commonly found near refineries, oil and gas exploration facilities or drilling rigs, manure pits, bogs or swamps, hot springs, sewage treatment facilities and manholes, among others. If you or your workers are in a enclosed or semi-enclosed space around these natural or industrial areas, you should be trained.
