Honolulu Fire mistakenly posted the entire report and all of their unedited pictures. These are in the public domain now and have been used by many. The problem is many are speculating as to what the root cause was without the benefit of seeing the lab and speaking to the people that were involved. The investigation team is still testing many theories and our report is not due until the end of May.


I did a compressed gas safety class at U Penn for the local AIHA chapter meeting. Were you there? I also did an 8 hour compressed gas Safety and ER session when the new Nanofab opened in 2010

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Photos available to use? UH explosion




I’m writing a safety alert for my campus regarding the hydrogen gas explosion at UH.  Does anyone know if there are photos available that can be reprinted?  Before I start writing to media outlets for permission to use their images, I’m wondering if there’s anything out there that’s been cleared for internal use by other institutions.


My bulletin does include links to the Safety Zone articles and other news reports, but the text itself includes Penn-specific references to our documents and procedures.  If possible, I’d like to have one or two images included with my text, and I’d like to do it without infringing on any usage rights. 


Thanks for sharing any tips you may have.
