Oil Field Safety

Oil Field Safety

The oil field is rife with dangerous conditions; without proper training and awareness, workers can become seriously injured or worse. One of the more serious hazards that Argus specifically addresses is Hydrogen Sulfide, also known as sour gas or H2S. Through our H2S awareness safety training, we keep your workers safe.

H2S Quick Facts

  • Hydrogen Sulfide is flammable.
  • Hydrogen Sulfide is colorless.
  • Hydrogen Sulfide is toxic at very low concentrations.
  • Hydrogen Sulfide smells like rotten eggs, but this is not always the case and should not be relied on.
  • Hydrogen Sulfide is heavier than air and will sink and gather in low lying areas.
