Process Safety Management Implementation

REDD has practical experience helping companies understand the requirements of Process Safety Management (PSM) as outlined in OSHA 29CFR 1910.119. We have helped companies either to develop a compliance plan of how PSM will be implemented at their facility or assisted facilities with implementation tools and strategies to make PSM pay for them.

At its core, PSM is a program to address the 14 Elements of Process Safety Management as defined by OSHA:

  • Process Safety Information
  • Process Hazard Analysis
  • Operating Procedures
  • Employee Participation
  • Training
  • Contractors
  • Pre-Startup Safety Review
  • Mechanical Integrity
  • Hot Work Permits
  • Management of Change
  • Incident Investigation
  • Emergency Planning and Response
  • Compliance Audits
  • Trade Secrets

 

It requires the facility to develop a written plan of how these elements are addressed at the facility, and ensure that the plan is followed.

REDD stands ready to assist you with the entire PSM program development, program execution, or with any of the above elements individually. For example:

 

PROCESS SAFETY INFORMATION (PSI)

  • P&ID walk-downs and CAD updating
  • Create and maintain Equipment, Line and Instrument Lists
  • Electrical Area Classifications
  • Engineering Standards Documentation
  • User friendly Plant Data Center software
  • Etc.

You can also join our mailing list for more information on what REDD can do for your PSM program.  We also have a free self-evaluation where you can assess what elements of PSM may be lacking in your program.
