New to oxygen safety? Just need some basic knowledge or perhaps a refresher course? Need the convenience of an eTraining format?

The Level 1: O2 Aware is WHA’s introductory course to oxygen safety. In a 30-minute eTraining course or a two-hour customized onsite course, the O2 Aware course provides fundamental oxygen safety awareness training. Our Level 1 introduces the oxygen hazard, teaches risk management, increases safety awareness, and communicates essential good practices used to reduce fire risk. Contact us to learn more about the different training formats we offer to fit your needs.


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. This course is shorter and more general in content than our Level 2: O2 Practice 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.


  • The onsite version of this course is two-hours in length and can be custom-tailored to a client’s specific systems and needs.
  • The eTraining version of this course is specifically designed for group presentation in a 30-minute safety meeting for all personnel working with or around oxygen. The course is fully narrated and easy for a facilitator to present.


The learning goal of this course is to create awareness of the oxygen hazard and introduce safe, risk-mitigating practices or to provide a refresher course on the basic elements of oxygen safety.


The student will examine how oxygen increases the flammability and ignitability of materials, will discover how to apply a simple risk management mode, and recognize good practices that safely defend against the hazards.


Personnel who work with or around oxygen needing an introductory course to oxygen safety, including both non-technical and technical personnel.


Cost for level 1 training is typically $50-$250 per person. Final cost depends on several factors such as format, number of courses, number of personnel to be trained, and any custom add-ons. Group discounts and eTraining subscription discounts are available.
