Hydrogen Safety Assurance

This course introduces the practical tools and techniques to allow Hydrogen equipment and facility designers and developers to build a robust yet pragmatic safety assurance framework and apply this to ensure and demonstrate that they are reducing risk to ALARP.

It examines how tried and tested approaches can be adapted to suit the specific characteristics and challenges of hydrogen as an energy vector by highlighting both commonalities and differences between hydrogen and well-understood hydrocarbons

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  1. Have an understanding of the hydrogen hazard, its specific characteristics and challenges.
  2. Understand how established risk assessment tools and techniques can be applied to hydrogen schemes, with appreciation of the limitation of these techniques.
  3. Define the purpose and benefits of the formal demonstration that risks are managed to ALARP, and understand how this can be best achieved.
