The increasing role of hydrogen as an energy carrier in the transition to clean energy is driving an increase in research and development related to hydrogen and laboratory experimentation involving hydrogen. To assure the safest possible environment for researchers, it’s critical to understand and follow best practices, particularly in academic settings and in organizations that may lack experience in working with hydrogen.

This eLearning course is intended to help the learner understand the hazards of hydrogen and apply best practices for creating and maintaining safe laboratories and safe experiments.
