The operation of hydrogen refueling stations shall comply with the requirements of the relevant regulations of Shanghai.

Safety Management
Enterprises operating hydrogen refueling sites shall establish and improve safety operation management institutions and management systems in accordance with the requirements of the “Regulations for the Safety Management of Hydrogen Vehicle Hydrogenation Facilities” (GB/Z 34541).

The main person in charge of the company is the person in charge of safety, responsible for organizing the formulation and implementation of the company’s safety production regulations and operating procedures and is responsible for the safety of the company.

The safety management system shall include but not limited to the operation site safety management system, the fire safety management system, the equipment safety management system, the staff safety management system, the safety inspection management system, the accident reporting and handling process, the regular inspection system, and the safety and security work management system.

Hydrogen refueling stations shall, in accordance with regulations, inspect and register the operating certificates and inspection and evaluation information of the delivery vehicles that arrive at the station for unloading hydrogen, and the qualification certificates of drivers. They shall not accept unqualified vehicles for unloading. The hydrogen supplied by the hydrogen refueling station shall be regularly tested by a third party and the results shall be publicized.

The hydrogen refueling station shall organize a comprehensive investigation and treatment of hidden accidents on a regular basis, eliminate hidden accidents in time, and ensure safe production.

Hydrogen refueling stations should strengthen the safety training and education of employees and make provisions for personnel safety training and assessment.

The hydrogen refueling station shall equip employees with necessary safety protection equipment.

The hydrogen refueling station shall, in accordance with relevant national regulations and technical standards, set up corresponding safety facilities, equipment and devices such as fire protection, explosion protection, lightning protection, anti-static, monitoring, alarm, interlocking, etc., and conduct regular maintenance. Relevant records should be kept for more than three years.

The hydrogen refueling station should have a safety administrator on duty in each shift, responsible for supervising and inspecting the implementation of safety management measures, and correcting violations.

The safety management system and safety operation specifications of the hydrogen refueling station should be posted in a conspicuous position, and the hydrogen hazard risk notification board should be publicized to the general public.

Information supervision
The hydrogen refueling station shall establish a data acquisition and monitoring system for the station, and save the following data, of which the storage time limit of audio and video data is not less than three months; the storage time limit of non-audio and video data is not less than one year:
(1) Operation log of hydrogen equipment (operation parameters, maintenance records, inspection, and calibration records).
(2) Filling and refilling information.
(3) Security monitoring system data (parameters, audio, and video).
(4) Hydrogen quality records.
(5) Disposal records of hidden dangers and accidents.
(6) Emergency drill records.
(7) Personnel training records.
The collection of other data from hydrogen refueling stations shall comply with the regulatory requirements of relevant departments.
Security Assessment
The hydrogen refueling station shall hold a regular site safety evaluation report within the validity period and an annual safety evaluation report for daily operations.

Emergency Management
Hydrogen refueling stations shall strengthen emergency management in accordance with the relevant requirements of the “Management Measures for Emergency Plans for Production Safety Accidents” (Emergency Management Department Order No. 2):
