Preparing the PSM and the RMP for the 2002 Winter Olympics Bobsled/Luge Track
Author: Dr. Ronald Block, Dr. Paul Lessard, and Roy Iverson
It is estimated that up to 12,000 spectators will be observing the bobsled run, while another 20,000 spectators will be on hand to observe the ski jumping during the Games. At the base of Bear Hollow is a small town with a population of several hundred. A Process Safety Management Plan (PSM) had to be prepared prior to the facility becoming operational. Because of concerns of a potential ammonia release, a Risk Management Plan (RMP) was also prepared to predict the possible impact of ammonia on the spectators and the town populace should a release occur.
