Safety Improvements Using Process Safety Management Concepts

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed significant changes to the Process Safety Management Standard (29 CFR 1910.119). The standard has not been updated since its publication in 1992. The standard was originally developed and published in response to several catastrophic chemical release incidents that occurred worldwide. Since then, there have been several catastrophic release incidents have occurred including the 2013 ammonium nitrate explosion at the West Fertilizer Plant, that renewed interest in process safety management (PSM).
As with any regulatory standard, end users are faced with the task of interpreting which sections apply to their operations and identifying ways to integrate regulatory requirements, good engineering, and manufacturing practices into their daily responsibilities.
