The SafeAir hydrogen sulfide badge is a monitoring system designed to indicate the presence of hydrogen sulfide at concentrations below the permissible exposure limit. The SafeAir hydrogen sulfide badge detects the presence of hydrogen sulfide by forming a color change in the shape of an exclamation mark inside the triangle. This indication is produced by a color-forming reaction which occurs when hydrogen sulfide reacts with a flat indicator layer.

Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless gas with a strong odor resembling rotten eggs. Continuous exposure to low concentrations (15 – 20 ppm) generally causes irritation to the mucous membranes. It may also cause headaches and dizziness. High concentrations (200 – 300 ppm) can result in respiratory arrest leading to unconsciousness. Exposure for more than 30 minutes at concentrations as high as 700 ppm has been fatal. Continuous inhalation of low concentrations may cause loss of the sense of smell which makes the detection of its presence by odor ineffective. OSHA PEL (permissible exposure limit) for hydrogen sulfide is 20 ppm (TWA). NIOSH REL (recommended exposure limit) for hydrogen sulfide is 10 ppm (TWA).

Hydrogen sulfide is a widely spread pollutant. It is emitted as a byproduct in many industries such as oil refineries, production of sulfuric acid, leather, gelatin, artificial silk and sugar. As a product of normal biodegradation of bioproducts, hydrogen sulfide is spread in waste water treatment locations.
