Mentoring Program

Program Purpose and

Strategic Goals

The Hydrogen Safety Program at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) established a Hydrogen Safety Plan Mentoring Program to attract the participation of qualified individuals to: 

    • Enable next-generation professionals to gain expertise in hydrogen safety and make meaningful contributions to the HSP's important safety work.
    • Cultivate a sustainable pool of new hydrogen safety experts to enable the safe and timely transition to hydrogen on a large scale


Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) under the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office (HFTO). 


Program Overview

The mentoring program will focus on two mentees and be 24 months in length. Mentees are expected to commit 16 hours per month to the program. The mentees will be paired with mentors from the Hydrogen Safety Panel based on the mentee's current levels of technical expertise and desired technical areas for learning. Mentoring will take place primarily by electronic means (e.g., teleconferences, email, chats, eLearning platform), supplemented by in-person meetings as program resources permit. At the conclusion of the program, mentees will have completed a series of hydrogen safety training courses and demonstrated the necessary knowledge, skills, and ability to independently contribute to safety review activities typically performed by the HSP. At the end of the program, the mentees may be offered an opportunity to join the HSP.



Expected Impact

Anticipated Outcomes for Mentees

Empowering Growth

Mentees will increase the depth of their technical knowledge and skills in hydrogen safety, develop broader technical perspectives, and expand their professional and social networks through the HSP and the Center for Hydrogen Safety (CHS).

Industry Advancement

The industry at large will benefit by having a larger pool of professionals with advanced expertise in the safe handling and use of hydrogen.

Driving Change

Mentees' expertise will help address near-term hydrogen safety challenges and will pave the way for transformation into a future hydrogen economy.
