Safety Management Systems (SMS) is now offering an H₂S health and safety program for the oil & gas industry.

Hydrogen sulfide gas, or H₂S, is the second most deadly gas and develops along with crude oil and natural gas. Because of this, having the proper H₂S safety measures in place is imperative to any company working with oil & gas.

The new SMS H₂S program offers the oil & gas industry the most comprehensive H₂S solution on the market. SMS boasts highly-trained H₂S technicians along with the best equipment and most advanced technology available in a rental program.

SMS attracts some of the most experienced H₂S technicians in the field, and they have helped build an adaptive program that is customized for every client. The H₂S standard operating procedures will be dynamic, using a guided intranet system to mediate discussion and develop the best practices for different clients’ needs.

Jody Herbert, who has more than 10 years of safety and leadership experience in the oil & gas industry, will be overseeing all H₂S technicians. He previously served as an HSE specialist for a number of corporations, including Chevron, Apache and Stone Energy, and also has experience as an H₂S technician with Total Safety.

“For years SMS has offered the oil & gas industry the finest industry services,” says Herbert. “The addition of the SMS H₂S program extends our already proven ability to provide our customers with the most respected and complete health and safety systems in the industry.”

SMS is a division of Acadian and one of the largest health, safety, environmental, medical, security and training service companies in the United States.
