Assessing the Impact of Accidental Ammonia Releases - USEPA'
Assessing the Impact of Accidental Ammonia Releases - USEPA's Risk Management Plan Requirements (1995)-On October 20, 1993, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published their long-anticipated proposed regulations for Risk Management Programs (RMP) for Chemical Accidental Release Prevention (40 CFR Part 68). Like OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) standard (29 CFR 191 0.1 IS), EPA's RMP requirements are designed to prevent or minimize the consequences of major uncontrolled releases, fires and explosions. The key difference, however, is that while the PSM standard is designed to protect employees, the RMP requirements are designed to protect the community and the environment. This important distinction in the intent of the two regulations is a major factor in new, far-reaching requirements of the EPA proposed requirements over and above those identified in the OSHA standard. The EPA's RMP requirements can be organized into the following general categories: registration; hazard assessment; prevention program; emergency response program; risk management plan. This paper will focus on the hazard assessment portion of the proposed regulations.
