Online Course: How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas?

Confronted with increasing legal and social pressures, no tanner can afford the luxury of not being familiar with the main issues and principles of occupational, safety and health protection pertaining to tannery operations.

Hydrogen sulphide gas, present in tanneries and effluent treatment plants, has proven fatal to workers exposed to it many times. It is therefore necessary that the owners and managers of tanneries and effluent treatment plants are fully aware of the dangers posed by this poisonous gas and take all preventive and precautionary measures to protect the workforce from exposure to this gas. In the event of accidental exposure of a worker, they should know how to deal with the situation.

Developed by UNIDO, the online course “How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas?” aims to make tanners, tannery managers and operators aware of the dangers posed by this poisonous gas. Through training and tests it provides guidance on how to take preventive and precautionary measures to protect the workforce, and how to deal with accidental gas exposure.

After finishing the test with a minimum score of 80%, participants will receive a downloadable certificate.
