PEC H2S Clear (4-hour End User)

PEC Safety has developed a 4-hour standalone H2S course titled “PEC H2S Clear (4-hour End User).” PEC H2S Clear will improve employee safety performance for general industry workers who may come in contact with hydrogen sulfide during their regular day to day job duties.

While not only improving safety performance, this course also prepares general industry workers by providing crucial knowledge of the dangers of H2S and the precautions, tools and controls necessary when working in H2S environments. This course has no prerequisite and covers the current classroom requirements of ANSI Z390.1 and is designed to meet the new ANSI requirements coming in 2016.

PEC H2S Clear can also be used to enhance our other training courses such as PEC Basic Orientation, PEC Basic/10, or PEC Core Compliance. At a minimum, it is recommended to complete PEC Basic Orientation prior to taking H2S Clear to meet general industry safety orientation requirements.

With hundreds of authorized PEC trainers nationwide and a Train the Trainer available for companies with in-house trainers, PEC Safety makes it easy for your company to obtain PEC H2S Clear.

Ensure your employees are trained on standardized H2S topics required by regulatory agencies in the most complete and cost effective program developed by PEC Safety, the leader in the safety training industry.
