Preparing for OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) Regulat
Preparing for OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) Regulations (1992)-The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) proposed process safety management (PSM) regulations are scheduled to be finalized in early 1992. These regulations are designed to protect employees from the risks associated with accidental releases of highly hazardous chemicals. Anhydrous ammonia is included on OSHA's list of hazardous chemicals because of its relatively high toxicity and its high volatility. The proposed regulations will impact both new and existing ammonia refrigeration facilities. OSHA's PSM regulations will require the development of a comprehensive management program involving twelve process safety elements. The major objective of this paper will be to summarize these twelve elements, and to present a step-by-step approach to address three elements which are key in the early stages of developing a PSM program. Compliance with any PSM regulation is a challenging task, but with proper planning and commitment, the task can be simplified and result in a safer operation.
