If it is tried that new hydrogen energy applications reach a high degree of acceptance in the public worldwide, accidents than would generate serious negative effects must be avoided or minimized In accordance with this point, the industrial experience can contribute in favor of the generalized knowledge in the field of safety, because hydrogen has been handled successfully for decades in the chemical process industries. All whatever is known from industrial experience and dedicated R&D activities is important to help in the construction of a hydrogen safety database. Additionally, the international standardization activities could bring us the opportunity for spreading, out that information as normative documents (ISO/TC 197 Technical Committee), The present work takes advantage of the rich experience obtained during the construction and operation of industrial installations, which use hydrogen, deuterium and hydrogen containing compounds. The referred experience is presented in such a way that it can be translated into safety recommendations applicable in the development of safer hydrogen energy facilities.
