Hydrogen, being versatile and abundant definitely has a role to play in initiatives to reduce carbon emissions. At present, organisations are keen to move forward at pace with their projects, but the big concern is that safety challenges may be underestimated, or that the connection between specific risk factors and the resulting operational hazards may not be fully appreciated.

Hydrogen is increasingly used by organisations to replace other fuels. An entire value chain has emerged around the hydrogen consumption sector, comprising activities such as fuel cell production, the associated service infrastructure such as fuel stations or repair shops, as well as facilities for garaging vehicles. 

Many of these new hydrogen users, although otherwise safety-aware in their systems and procedures, may be unfamiliar with the special challenges, safeguards and infrastructure required with hydrogen. Gas measuring and warning systems are one key element of risk control which organisations need to engage with in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements and their own circumstances.

Only after thorough analysis 
can the project proceed to design and install gas detection infrastructures with the aid of acoustic, flame and gas mapping assessments.
