Hydrogen Safety & Hazardous Areas Conference, Perth

to be held on Whadjak Country- Perth Western Australia.  

The Hydrogen Safety & Hazardous Areas conference is a practical and informative platform to showcase best practice, new technologies, and the current standards and regulations for the use of hydrogen and for hazardous areas. It is an opportunity to be part of this rapid global move to renewables, where knowledge and safety are the focus.

The conference will concentrate on hydrogen and its cryogenic properties which require additional engineering controls and understanding to ensure its safe use. Hydrogen production, processing, transportation and utilisation will be covered, alongside stakeholder safety, equipment damage prevention and environmental protection. The public’s positive perception of hydrogen as a viable, safe, and clean alternative to conventional energy systems is necessary for the successful commercialisation of these developing technologies. To this end adept management in this potentially hazardous industry is critical.

Keynote Speaker Professor Peta Ashworth OAM is the Director, of the Curtin Institute for Energy Transition
Prior to joining Curtin University, Professor Ashworth was the Director of the Andrew N. Liveris Academy for Innovation and Leadership, and Chair in Sustainable Energy Futures at The University of Queensland (UQ). Professor Ashworth brings over thirty years’ experience working in a range of senior management, consulting and research roles. She was Chair of the Queensland Hydrogen Taskforce and is a member of CSIRO Hydrogen Mission Advisory Board. Professor Ashworth is a globally-recognised expert in the fields of energy, communication, stakeholder engagement, and technology assessment. For almost two decades, Peta has been researching public attitudes toward climate and energy technologies, including wind, carbon capture and storage (CCS), solar photovoltaic, storage, geothermal and hydrogen. An accomplished speaker and facilitator,
Professor Ashworth is actively involved in building energy literacy more broadly both within Australia and globally, and regularly provides input to policy briefings, think tanks, as well as educational events for the benefit of the broader community.

International Keynote Speaker Mike Marrington: IndEx – Hazardous Area Ex Professionals Operations Manager
Michael Marrington is a distinguished expert in hazardous areas (IECEx, ATEX, CompEx, EEHA, UL STP & NFPA 505 Committee Member), specializing in the application of hydrogen systems for industrial processes. With a wealth of experience encompassing a wide range of sectors, including furnaces, gas turbine generators, electrolysis, feedstock, and the groundbreaking implementation of the world’s first gas hydrogen passenger ferry (The Sea Change). His extensive knowledge of hydrogen technologies, combined with a deep understanding of safety regulations and compliance requirements, while focusing on practical approach has enabled them to successfully navigate the complex landscape of hazardous environments.
