Is hydrogen safe?

Proven safety
Hydrogen itself is clean, safe and all around us. It’s so common it makes up 70% of matter in the universe and is actually safer to handle than petrol or diesel. Hydrogen has unique physical and chemical properties which present benefits and challenges to its successful widespread adoption as a fuel.
As HyMove, we follow the specified safety categories from the EU Fuel Cell Electric Buses Knowledge Bases. (https://www.fuelcellbuses.eu/category/safety)
For each category HyMove has specific knowhow and offers that knowhow to vehicle manufacturers, operators and maintenance companies. For more information please also check below Youtube video on vehicle safety test:
