The emergence of hydrogen systems as part of the energy transition is unstoppable. We are receiving more and more questions about the safety aspects of working with or on hydrogen systems.
Examples include workshops for hydrogen vehicles, test set-ups for hydrogen cells, test set-ups for electrolysers, hydrogen storage systems, compressors, filling stations.
Anyone who works with hydrogen systems is often already aware of the explosive properties of hydrogen. In addition, it has several physical properties that make working with hydrogen or on hydrogen systems potentially dangerous.
The dangers are caused by, among other things
Pol-Safety Safety Advisors B.V. has helped several companies in the past to obtain a safe working environment and/or hydrogen installations. These include :
