Hydrogen technology is being developed worldwide in the push towards a low-carbon society. Hydrogen may be a solution to various critical energy challenges associated with the storage and transport of energy (especially that from renewable sources such as wind and solar), but the use of hydrogen brings its own challenges. Even though hydrogen has properties that make it safer to handle and use compared to other fuels, such as its non-toxic nature, other properties require engineering control to ensure its safety.

During this webinar, Geirmund Vislie will provide an overview of hydrogen safety, starting with details of hydrogen properties and what makes it different from handling other chemicals, through to practical information on current best practice design approaches relevant across multiple industries (such as transportation, energy, and manufacturing). Lessons learned from recent incidents will also be discussed.

The webinar will feature a live presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. If the date and time do not work for you, register now and we will send you a replay of the webinar.


What will you learn?

  • Physical properties of hydrogen
  • Special aspects, what makes it different from other chemicals?
  • Best practice of design approaches
  • Lesson learned from hydrogen incidents


Who should attend?

This is a high-level awareness webinar and does not require any detailed technological knowledge. The webinar is aimed at managers across industries where hydrogen is currently relevant or maybe in the future a part of a decarbonization pathway.

Geirmund Vislie (Vice President Hydrogen Safety of Gexcon AS)

Geirmund has been involved in many hydrogen-related projects. His latest achievement was his involvement in the investigation of the incident that occurred last June at the Kjørbo hydrogen refueling station in Sandvika, Norway. He was also involved in a number of projects concerning the use of hydrogen as a fuel in maritime applications, featuring both liquefied and compressed hydrogen.
