This audit required the REDD team to visit the facility to effectively evaluate its safety program. The audit consisted of interviews, observations, and document review. The main purpose of this audit was to discover deficiencies in the systems in place for managing process safety at the facility based on 29 CFR 1910.119, OSHA’s Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals.
An audit protocol was used for guidance during the audit which provided a series of checklists to verify compliance with each requirement of the PSM regulation. After completing the audit, REDD engineers created a final audit report addressing the findings for each category on the checklist. REDD also provided recommendations and an audit findings tracking document to help plant personnel resolve safety issues in the future.
Just like any audit performed by REDD, we not only delivered a thorough audit report with recommendations to achieve compliance, but also provided guidance and suggestions on how this facility can leverage its programs and practices to achieve a word-class safety culture for years to come.
