Hydrogen Safety Training Workshop

Scholarships Available

June 10, 2024
Washington, DC

The Dominion Energy Innovation Center (DEIC) is excited to announce the availability of five fully funded scholarships to the upcoming Omitz Hydrogen Safety Training workshop. This valuable opportunity is open to all Virginia-based entrepreneurs and innovators currently working on hydrogen startups or those interested in entering the hydrogen industry.


NFPA 2: Hydrogen Technologies Code training provides a comprehensive review of the core safety requirements for hydrogen production, storage, transfer, and use in its various forms. They will review a variety of hydrogen-related applications and will discuss explanatory/supporting material that is critical to understanding this code.


  • Grasp the critical role of NFPA 2 in promoting a safe and sustainable Hydrogen Economy
  • Confidently navigate and identify relevant sections of NFPA 2
  • Demonstrate the ability to interpret key elements of NFPA 2


  • Designers, engineers (mechanical, chemical, fire safety), researchers, technicians, and project managers responsible for the design, installation, and maintenance of hydrogen systems.
  • Authorities having jurisdiction and other safety and health points of contact responsible for ensuring compliance.


  • Expert-led discussions, hands-on exercises, and hydrogen case studies.
  • Participants receive a certificate of completion, eligible for continuing education credits.


To apply for the scholarship, interested candidates should contact Braden Croy, Program Director at DEIC, via email at


Phil Clark has a decade of experience as the Hydrogen Safety Point of Contact at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and played a pivotal role in ensuring the safety of their research hydrogen systems. His contributions include facilitating hazard analysis, advanced risk assessments, conducting hazard-awareness training, overseeing system construction and operation, and leading investigations into off-normal events. Phil, a CSP and CIH, is an active member of the Center for Hydrogen Safety’s Safety Culture Committee and made significant contributions to the NFPA 2 committee’s efforts in developing standard permitting checklists for the 2016 edition.

Leveraging his strong understanding of safety regulations, codes, and standards, along with his passion for simplifying complex information, Phil founded a regulatory technology company, Omitz. His software is a cutting-edge application of artificial intelligence and neural networks to distill complex regulatory requirements into easily manageable data by omitting irrelevant content. This data can be interacted with natural language, making compliance and safety regulations accessible and user-friendly.
