Impact of hydrogen on works in confined spaces

The objective of this report is to analyse the risks of gaseous hydrogen when working in confined spaces and to provide appropriate mitigating measures.

Entering a confined space must be the last option after having considered work practises which would not require an entry, e.g. removing parts or machines and conducting repair or maintenance works outside of a confined space.

This document deals with the dangers of hydrogen in confined spaces and is not intended to replace international and national regulations for working in confined spaces, but merely to raise awareness of the subject.
