Don't Be Fooled By The Silent Killer

This course is designed to provide clear instruction on the clear and present dangers of H2 S – a hazard you cannot see. PEC H2 S Clear will help students identify the physical and chemical properties, sources, symptoms, and hazards of hydrogen sulfide (H2 S). Students will learn about H2 S routes of exposure, as well as the proper selection, use, and maintenance of personal and respiratory protective equipment. Students will learn about workplace warnings, practices, and maintenance procedures to protect personnel from exposure to H2 S. H2 S detection and monitoring systems are introduced. Students will also learn about emergency response procedures, corrective actions, and shutdown procedures which may be necessary in the event of a H2 S emergency.



Upon successful completion of the course, students receive their PEC ID card. The back of the card reflects PEC courses successfully completed by the student. Employers may also verify course completion by visiting www.peccard.com.
