H2S Alive has been changed to H2S Alive Edition 7.4
H2S Alive which is accredited through Enform has a new Edition 7.4. This is a summary of the new course and how to get the new certification. Allstar Enviro Safety is an authorized training institute for this program.
a) H2S Properties, Scales, Points of Release and Health hazards
b) Respiratory Protective Equipment (SCBA and SABA)
c) Detection of H2S
d) Rescue techniques and the 7 step Initial Response Strategy
However, major changes were undertook to modernize the program and to prepare new workers who are entering the oil and gas, transportation and construction trades.
New additions include:
a) Hazard Assessment and Control. Severity and Probability, determination of risk, and application of controls using Elimination and Substitution, Engineering, Administrative controls and personal protective equipment will be emphasized.
b) While the previous program had Case studies, the new scenarios for a variety of sites in the petroleum industry will provide students with the process to identify the risks and respond to emergencies that could affect people, materials, equipment and the environment.
c) CPR has been removed from the program. Since workers should have first aid and CPR to be employed in these industries, this removes any repetition in training and allows more time for other skills practice.
d) Detector tubes are demonstrated by the instructor but have less emphasis in the new edition as compared to the use of personal, portable placed and fixed monitors.
