Abstract: The Hydrogen Incident and Accident Database (HIAD) has been designed to hold high quality information on accidents and incidents related to hydrogen production, transport (road/rail/pipeline), supply and commercial use. The database is updated with the latest information concerning each event in order to take advantage of the most recent outcomes of accident investigations. The database has been set up to improve the understanding of hydrogen unintended events, to identify preventive measures and strategies, to avoid incidents/accidents and to reduce the consequence if an accident occurs. The experience of the past years has revealed some shortcomings and generated improvement needs for HIAD. Some of the original goals related to risk assessment had to be abandoned, due to the limited amount of statistics available on faults and failure modes. A major overhaul of the database structure and interface was undertaken. The new version is mainly focused on facilitating the sharing of lessons learned and other relevant information related to the safety of hydrogen technologies. The database will contribute to improve safety awareness, enabling the users to benefit from the experiences of others as well as to share information from their own experiences. The main challenge at present is to attain a clear commitment of the fuel cells and hydrogen technology community to provide sufficient information on safety relevant events.
