As hydrogen gains prominence, ensuring its safe handling and utilization becomes paramount. Recognizing this need, the International Harmonization Council (IHC) of which the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) is a member, took a significant step earlier this year by creating the “Hydrogen Safety Ecosystem”.
The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) is forming an Ad Hoc Committee (AHC) to review and, if necessary, respond to papers submitted for the November/December 2023 sessions of the United Nations Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN SCETDG) and UN Sub-Committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (UN SCEGHS).

CGA H-17, Guideline for Small Scale Hydrogen Production, addresses the safety aspects associated with siting and operating small scale hydrogen plants which are not currently addressed in existing publications for large HYCO (hydrogen, CO, and/or mixtures thereof) plants.
The fourth annual Young and Emerging Professionals Summit, which took place virtually across four days this August, gathered more than 600 professionals from across the compressed gas industry.
In the realm of safety, the most profound lessons often stem from studying the best in the business. This ethos has been at the core of Roberts Oxygen’s philosophy, and it’s a principle that Dave Mason embraced from his very first days as a driver/salesperson, a remarkable 46 years ago.
