What is h2s?

Hydrogen Sulfide is a colorless, flammable, and dangerous gas. It has a rotten egg smell and occurs naturally in crude petroleum and natural gas. Hydrogen Sulfide is heavier than air and it can travel along the ground. It collects in low-lying and poorly-ventilated areas.

Although h2s has a noticeable rotten egg smell at low concentrations, at high concentrations a person loses his/her ability to smell the gas. This is called olfactory fatigue and can happen rapidly and pose as a potentially life threatening situation.

H2S and Pipeline Dogs

All K9 Pipe Inspections detection dogs carry h2s gas monitors on their collars. In addition, all safety protocols necessary for h2s detection in bell holes and trenches will be done prior to an inspection conducted by a pipeline dog.

We feel this is especially important because K9 Pipe Inspections pipeline leak detection dogs inspect pipeline ROWs that often have low lying areas such as bell holes and trenches. Our safety plan includes action for when a canine monitor may detect h2s, and the best course of action to ensure the safety of our canines and their handlers.

Preventative action and adherence to safety procedures is the best policy, and we are proud to be a company that takes the safety of ALL employees seriously.
