Hydrogen Safety


Hydrogen has been growing in popularity as a viable renewable energy source. CGA has standards, guides, infographics, videos, and more to help learn about hydrogen safety.

Featured Resource


CGA is modernizing the CGA Handbook of Compressed Gases by making it a virtual tool, and we are pleased to announce that the gas monographs are now available in electronic format and can be accessed by going to the Handbook publication detail page and then clicking on the “Handbook Online” button.

The gas monographs provide information on the properties, uses, emergency response, safety, and special handling information for fifty-eight (58) of the most common compressed gases. Each gas monograph opens with basic identifying information: chemical name of the gas, its chemical symbol, synonyms, CAS registry number, DOT and TC proper shipping name, classification, labels, assigned UN number, and GHS classification.
