An overview of the hazards involved in performing sulfide and corrosion studies in sewage treatment and collection systems is presented. Important factors which should be recognized in developing a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for such studies are outlined. Definition of confined space, particular hazards associated with hydrogen sulfide gas atmospheres, and necessary resources in the development of an SOP are included. Required safety equipment, emergency equipment, and equipment maintenance are discussed, as well as initial personnel training requirements, continuing education training, and importance of a good documentation program.
