What Is the Hydrogen Sulfide Training Standard
The ANSI/ASSP Z390.1 standard establishes minimum requirements for site-specific hydrogen sulfide safety training programs that will enhance safety in occupational settings where hydrogen sulfide is present or is recognized as being potentially present.
Why Use the Hydrogen Sulfide Training Standard
This standard establishes accepted practices for hydrogen sulfide safety training and identifies instructor qualifications. Trainers can use the standard to develop course content to ensure that affected employees understand the properties and characteristics of H2S, its sources and potential areas of exposure; can apply site-specific safe work practices; know how H2S is detected and what PPE is required; and understand rescue techniques. The standard also helps trainers design and execute practice drills and deliver refresher training.
