Level 1: Hydrogen Safety Introductory Awareness

This course teaches the fundamental understanding and awareness required to be safe around hydrogen. H2 Aware introduces the hazardsrisk management philosophy, and essential good practices to reduce hydrogen fire risk.


This course is designed for all personnel who work with or around hydrogen or hydrogen mixtures. It provides an introduction or refresher appropriate for both non-technical and technical personnel.

Learning Goals

Students will receive a basic introduction to hydrogen and the hydrogen fire hazard, need-to-know insights and safety information on material selection and leak prevention, along with good practices essential for safe handling and operations. This course is shorter and more general in content than our Level 2: H2 Practice course, but still highlights important concepts on the unique properties of hydrogen, combustion hazards, materials compatibility, and ignition sources. Quizzes are provided to review the main points in each section.

Student Outcomes

After completing this course, students will be equipped with the basic understanding necessary to implement a simple risk management strategy and apply good practices that safely defend against the hazards of hydrogen.
