Veriforce Launches H2S Awareness Campaign to Protect Communities
Veriforce, a leading provider of safety and compliance solutions, today announced a campaign to spread awareness and protect against the dangers of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a highly toxic gas that can cause sudden fatalities when inhaled in high concentrations. The gas is emitted as a by-product of many industrial processes, including the drilling and production of crude oil and gas, making the Permian and Eagle Ford Regions of Texas especially vulnerable to exposure.
H2S recently claimed the lives of a 44-year-old man at an Ector County pump house and his 37-year-old wife who went to check on him. The tragedy has increased awareness for the need to draw public attention to the dangers of the deadly gas, cited as one of the leading causes of workplace inhalation deaths in the United States.
