In the United States the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) created the first Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements back in 1992. This was in response to a series of catastrophic incidents related to highly hazardous chemicals (HHC).
Over the years the requirements for PSM have changed and expanded several times. All HHC-related companies need to keep up to date as the requirements change and expand.
With these changes compliance to PSM has been very difficult to administer. This is especially difficult for smaller organizations. As there are numerous mandated activities, it is easy to let things fall through the cracks.
In the webinar we gave some free top tips for helping you to comply with PSM.
The main topics covered were:
- Employee Participation
- Process Safety Information
- Process Hazard Analysis
- Operating Procedures
- Pre-startup Safety Review
- Mechanical Integrity
- Hot Work Permit
- Management of Change
- Incident Investigation
- Emergency Planning and Response
- Compliance Audits
- Trade Secrets
