Assessment On safety requirements:
Specific H2 detection equipment have to be permanently installed on the production site to monitor the H2 concentration in the atmosphere (if the production is packaged or in–door). The personnel has to be equipped with a mobile H2 detection system for specific maintenance operations, control operations after an accidental shut–down of the unit, restart of the unit etc. The staff needs to be trained on H2 safety & operation

On safety distances:
these are subject to interpretation by the Fire Dept and can vary greatly from municipality to municipality, leading to potentially enormous extra costs where the most severe restrictions and requirements are imposed.
