Good morning! In my opinion, a hydrogen safety webinar will be helpful for the larger research audience in the following areas:
1. Effect of hydrogen on catalyst reactivity
2. Mixing hydrogen safely with other gases such as CO, N2, O2 etc. (mix or not to mix)
3. Use of hydrogen for catalyst reactivation (glove box)
4. Hydrogen for scientific demonstration.
5. Leak detections and regulator compatibility
Thank you very much.

Pete - would you help with the "script" - This one is a perfect one for us to start with. I finally have all the "bugs" worked out with the How to Webinar. Compressed gases are one of my pet projects - so this could be a great one.
Also not to mention the numerous run away hydrogen reactions that happen in glove boxes, cathodes, etc.

I would really appreciate it if DivCHAS or AIHA did a webinar on hydrogen safety as it pertains to research laboratories. There have been three hydrogen explosions at universities since 2010 (U. Missouri, Stoney Brook U. and U. Hawai’i). Scientists and EHS staff need better training on hydrogen safety, risks to look out for, and how to do a hazard assessment for research involving hydrogen. When we ask researchers about their setup, they say, “I’ve been doing this for years. This is the same setup described in the literature/that my mentor uses.” Please.
