Guide to Safety of Hydrogen and Hydrogen Systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This Guide presents information that designers, builders, and users of hydrogen systems can use to manage and ensure safe hydrogen systems or resolve hazards related to the material behavior, facility storage, detection, and transportation of hydrogen as well as a review of emergency procedures. Pertinent research is summarized and supporting data are presented relative to the topic. Additional information regarding codes, standards, and regulations, as well as a sample safety data sheet, training examples, and other useful material are referenced and can be found in the annexes
The intent of this Guide is to provide enough information that it can be used alone; at the same time, data sources that can provide much more detail, if required, are referenced and listed in Annex A (Bibliography).
This Guide provides a minimum set of practical guidelines for safe hydrogen use. Users are encouraged to assess their individual programs and develop additional requirements as needed. The information presented here should be used as a reference to hydrogen design and practice and not as an authorizing document.
