Employing Proper Control Mechanism and Procedures to Protect Your Workers from the Lethal Effects of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Gas

H2S gas is an unavoidable part of some worksites, however accidents and deaths can be prevented. A well trained staff will have the know-how to protect themselves, but the employer will still need the proper control mechanisms.

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a dangerous, colorless, flammable gas that is known by its rotten egg smell. Workers that are exposed to poorly ventilated areas with decaying human and animal wastes and oil and gas extraction are particularly susceptible to H2S gases. Low/medium concentrations of H2S can produce several effects on the worker including – headaches, nausea, loss of sleep, bronchial constriction, loss of appetite, dizziness, poor memory, loss of smell and many more symptoms. Exposure to high levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can lead to death within a few breaths.
