Event triggering for the H1 detector on the HERA electron-proton ring is dominated by background associated with the proton beam. A 99% reduction in trigger rate is achieved by time resolution of background from physics using ToF -a scintillator detector positioned in the incoming proton direction. Studies on the efficiency of the veto have been carried out to improve background rejection.
