Fuel cell vehicles have been intensively developed in last years to cut dependence on fossil fuel and significantly reduce the CO2 emissions. The hydrogen fuelling station is a complex technological unit, consisting of various devices that interact with each other and at the same time have significant interactions with the external environment and environmental influences. Legislation and standards in the field of occupational safety and health are an integral part of hydrogen technologies and the use of hydrogen as an important carrier of energy and fuel of the future, a clean, safe and efficient energy system in the world. Effective legislation in the field of hydrogen technologies and the use of hydrogen for commercial purposes is one of the conditions for the functioning of the hydrogen energy system. Ensuring safety at all stages of the development of hydrogen technologies and the use of hydrogen is a goal and a prerequisite for the creation of laws and standards. Risk assessment is a useful tool to identify, prevent and mitigate accidental risks and hazards. The purpose of this study is a basic risk analysis of the planned hydrogen station in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
