OSHA’s Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals regulation (“PSM”) is designed to help employers prevent or minimize the consequences of catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals that may result in toxic, fire or explosion hazards. EPA’s risk-management planning regulation is designed to help prevent accidental releases of substances that can cause serious harm to the public and the environment from short-term exposures and to mitigate the severity of releases that do occur. This course provides an overview of OSHA’s PSM standard and EPA risk-management planning regulation. The course includes a review of the scope and applicability of each set of regulations together with the program requirements of each. PSM201 is an introductory course, however, it is a full-day that covers the requirements of each regulation with additional discussion and activities designed to reinforce key concepts. This course is suitable for managers, HSE/EHS staff, administrative staff and anyone else who will develop, implement and/or manage PSM and RMP programs.
Course Length: 8-Hours
