Over the years the company's H2S Specialists have logged several thousand hours of accident free operations while working in actual lethal concentrations of H2S. In one incident alone a Spa crew worked in a concentration of 70,000 ppm H2S. Among their many duties, Safety Supervisors identify possible hazards, communicate safe work procedures and monitor safe work performance. They also assist in the preparation of Safe Work Permits for work authorization and inspect the work site for safe working conditions. If deficiencies are discovered, the Safety Supervisors assist client personnel in immediate correction of the deficiencies and then follow-up to see that permanent measures have been implemented to prevent recurrence. The H2S Expert will investigate any incidents that occur, identify basic causes, and develop procedures to prevent recurrence, if needed. These investigations are reported to the client's representatives.
All H2S supervisory personnel are qualified to carry out consultancy services, such as initial surveys and implementation of on-site contingencies.
In addition, our expert's assist in preparing material for safety meetings, maintain all safety equipment in use, and provide emergency first aid when required.
