Government plans to expand hydrogen production to support the move to net zero are likely to result in tighter regulation to ensure its safe use, says Emma Evans.
Working with any gas and gas appliances can be inherently risky and unsafe, if not managed correctly.

Introduce hydrogen into this medley, and further consideration needs to be given because, as history shows, hydrogen and gas-related activities that are not managed correctly can have serious, as well as nearly fatal — or fatal — consequences.
