Process Safety Management


Chemical releases pose a significant threat to employee health, company property and the surrounding community. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, enacted the Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals standard to emphasize management of chemical hazards by using a comprehensive program of technologies, procedures and practices. The Process Safety Management, or PSM Standard, is designed to help companies safeguard their facilities against hazards associated with processes using storing, manufacturing, handling or moving highly hazardous chemicals. This awareness-level course is designed to help learners identify the regulatory components, employer requirements and site-specific requirements of a process safety management program. This course is designed for learners in any industry who are required to have a basic understanding of OSHA's PSM standard. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
