Safety Alert 014 – H2S Exposure

If you hear ‘it’s only water’, be wary. Insist on detailed, accurate analytical and safety data at the product enquiry stage so a proper risk assessment can be made.
Hazard awareness and training. All at risk need knowledge of H2S, its initial ‘rotten eggs’ smell, and awareness that when it reaches a high concentration, and at its most dangerous, there is no odour.
If H2S is present, or suspected to be present, proper controls are essential to minimise exposure. These include H2S monitors and personal protective equipment, including respiratory protective equipment.
