Introduction to Hydrogen Fundamentals

E-Learning Course

E-Learning Course

The prevalence of hydrogen and its application in fuel cells is constantly increasing. The institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention requires that employers make their employees aware of the hazards involved in handling hydrogen. This applies to all employees, not just to mechanics in workshops, but also to cleaning staff or office workers who could potentially come into contact with systems or vehicles that use hydrogen. Employees will subsequently be aware of the hazards posed by hydrogen and learn how to perform first aid in the event of an emergency.
