All offshore and onshore yards can be potential area of concentration of these gases, above all H2S. in order to prevent possible accidents, it is necessary to know the physical properties of the gas itself. Be aware of its properties and notice its presence allows to have general evidences about the control and the management of this substances and the dangerous situation that can arise. It is possible to use these evidences to prevent the exposure, injuries and maybe the death.
