H2S Safety Services in Grande Prairie

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is produced when there is a microbial breakdown of organic materials occurring in the absence of oxygen. It’s commonly found during crude oil and natural gas drilling and production processes, as well as in wastewater treatment and utility facilities and sewers. You can recognize it by its rotten egg smell though smell should not be used as a standard for gas detection. H2S has a similar toxicity level to carbon monoxide and should be carefully monitored to prevent accidents, even death, from happening. Ensure you have a good plan for gas detection and H2S safety in your Grande Prairie workplace.

Short term symptoms include:
  Headaches
  Nausea
  Convulsions
  Eye and skin irritation

 

Long term symptoms include:
  Unconsciousness
  Headaches
  Reduced attention span
  Reduced motor functioning
  Delayed pulmonary edema

While H2S does not accumulate in your body, repeated and prolonged exposure may cause symptoms including:

Low Levels of H2S Exposure Moderate levels of H2S Exposure Repeated Exposure
Skin rashes that could be painful Headaches Convulsions
Irritated eyes Loss of appetite Coma

Ways to Reduce Your Risk of H2S Exposure in Workplace

Sometimes there is no way to completely remove yourself from working in areas that may contain a risk of coming in contact with H2S but there are ways to prevent an accident from happening or minimizing exposure if something were to happen. These include:
  Make sure your workplace has a comprehensive prevention emergency response plan.
  High-risk areas should be well-ventilated and include a warning sign, including descriptions of symptoms.
  Air should be monitored, with both personal monitors worn on your person and permanently installed gas monitors.
  Areas with sources of gas should be closed, locked, and with signage.
