Our process safety specialists are dedicated to supporting safe industrial practices and have the experience and know-how to deliver quality auditing services. We can perform audits to determine conformance to OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Standard (29 CFR 1910.119) Process Safety Management (PSM) of highly hazardous chemicals, the Risk Management Plan (RMP) from EPA’s risk management rule (40 CFR Part 68) chemical accident prevention provisions, the New Jersey Toxic Catastrophe Prevention (NJTCPA) Consolidated Rule, or even your corporate process safety standards and programs.
Not only do our auditors have the expertise, credentials and background to ensure dependable, professional results, but we also have the soft skills to make partnering with us a successful experience in every way. Our emphasis on good communication and friendly collaboration is paired with a global scientific rigor, all in the service of safety.
A Three-Step Auditing Process for Facilities
Our process safety audits follow a three-step process beginning with information collection prior to a site visit followed up with a report and documentation.
Prior to the on-site visit, our process safety specialists work closely with site personnel to collect pertinent Process Safety Information (PSI) required for the audit. Time spent on this activity helps to optimize the time during the on-site visit so we can maximize our time spent with workers and making field observations. Information needed may include process descriptions and flow diagrams, material property data, site equipment layout drawings, written policies, and procedures.
In the second step, we conduct the site audit. During this visit, we complete record reviews, make visual observations, and conduct interviews with site operations and maintenance personnel as well as contract personnel in order to assess compliance. For OSHA, EPA, and NJTCPA compliance, a detailed checklist is completed addressing all aspects of the standards.
Finally, we submit a written report to the client that contains our findings, checklists, observations, and suggestions concerning any gaps found in the PSM, RMP, and/or NJTCPA covered portions of the site. We offer insight and recommendations as necessary to support the advancement of the site’s safety programs and come into compliance with legislated requirements and best industry practices.
