Webinar: Introduction to Process Safety Management and Lessons Learned
When: July 1, 2020 1:00 EST
Process safety is a comprehensive and systematic approach to identifying, mitigating, and responding to the risks associated with a release of a highly hazardous material and the potential catastrophic impacts of such a release. OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) standard is a performance-based standard that includes 14 elements that reaches into the manufacturing operation to support the prevention and potential disastrous impacts of a release. Although the PSM standard has been around for more than 20 years, catastrophic accidents continue to occur. This presentation is intended to not only introduce the basics of PSM but also to provide insight from years of application to key elements of an effective PSM program.
