A specialist in H2S gas safety

United Safety was started in the year 1987. They were a local entity at that time, providing safety services to the Canadian gas and oil production industry.

One of the safety services they provide is safety against H2S or sourgas. This gas is created when organic material is broken down by bacteria. The gas has a very distinct and unique smell, that of flatulence and rotten eggs. This gas is poisonous, but when present in large quantities it can deaden the worker’s sense of smell. The worker will not realize that there is H2S gas is present until the gas has taken its effect. Therefore a H2S detector is necessary at all times. This detector will save worker’s lives by warning them about the presence of H2S.

In fact gas drilling safety without an H2S detector is dangerous. Therefore each and every member of the drilling team has to be trained in the basic of gas drilling and H2S. The equipment need to ensure H2S safety can be either rented or bought from United Safety. They also provide on-site training to members of the team about H2S safety.

The H2S detectorprovided by United Safety comes in different shapes and sizes. These detectors are both wireless and portable, thereby allowing all members of the team to carry one with them. The detector will alert the worker when the amount of H2S gas in the air surrounding them is too high. These detectors can be used on all kinds of sites including offshore and onshore environments. The importance of safety against H2S gas is too serious to be ignored.
