Hydrogen can pose a significant risk when potential ignition sources are not suitably controlled.

An electrostatic discharge can suddenly ignite Hydrogen vapours due to it having a very low Minimum Ignition Energy (MIE). Therefore it is critical that all process and handling equipment is safely grounded prior to and throughout transfer and handling operations.
