Course Description

The course serves to increase understanding and awareness of oxygen safety for all personnel working with or around oxygen. It provides a basic introduction to oxygen and the oxygen fire hazard, need-to-know insights and safety information on materials flammability and ignition, along with good practices essential for safe handling and operations.

WHA’s Oxygen Safety Awareness course is shorter and more general in content than our Oxygen Systems Operations & Maintenance eTraining course, but still highlights important concepts on oxygen fire hazards, materials compatibility, ignition sources, system cleaning, and visual inspection for contaminants. Quizzes are provided to review the main points in each section.

Course length is 30 minutes.
