Managing a Process Safety Management Inspection
Managing a Process Safety Management Inspection (1995)-The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Process Safety Management (PSM) regulation (29 CFR 1910.1 19) has been in effect for almost three years. State level risk management programs in New Jersey, California and Delaware have been in effect for over six years. These regulations have had a profound impact on both the long-term planning and the day-to-day operations of ammonia refrigeration facilities. Through hard work, planning, and the commitment of resources, many ammonia refrigeration facilities are beginning to realize the benefits of PSM. Well developed and implemented PSM programs offer the following benefits: operations with fewer unanticipated ammonia releases; reduction in employee exposure to ammonia; improvements in ability to detect and respond to ammonia releases; reduction in unanticipated downtime of ammonia refrigeration equipment; increased sensitivity to the hazards of, and installed safeguards for, handling ammonia; compliance with state/federal process safety regulations; avoidance of fines, penalties, and negative exposure that results from non-compliance. This paper will discuss in greater detail some of these benefits, and in particular the aspect of governmental inspections of ammonia refrigeration facilities.
