Hazards of liquid hydrogen

The Health and Safety Executive have commissioned the Health and Safety Laboratory to identify and address issues relating to bulk liquid hydrogen transport and storage and update/develop guidance for such facilities. This position paper, the first part of the project, assesses the features of the transport and storage aspects of the refuelling stations that are now being constructed in the UK, compares them to existing guidance, highlights gaps in the regulatory regime and identifies outstanding safety issues. The findings, together with the results of experiments to improve our understanding of the behaviour of liquid hydrogen, will inform the development of the guidance for refuelling facilitie.
