Process safety management (PSM) is the process by which unexpected releases of toxic, reactive, or flammable materials in processes involving highly hazardous chemicals are prevented. In the United States, PSM is defined by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulation 29 CFR 1910.
This online training module provides an overview level presentation of PSM and the standards that define how PSM programs are developed and what they contain. The module begins a discussion of the origin of the standard, where it applies, and the authority under which it was created. The module then goes on to describe each of the fourteen elements of PSM, starting with Process Safety Information, moving through Process Hazards Analysis, and going on to Pre-Startup Safety Reviews, and much more. Upon completion of the module students will understand where PSM applies, and what is required to implement a compliant PSM program.
- Understand what the PSM rule is, why it was written, and what authority allowed for the creation and enforcement of the rule upon US industry
- Learn to determine what facilities are sections of facilities are covered by the PSM rule based on threshold quantities of highly hazardous chemicals
- Understand how facilities are broken down into monitored areas and how those areas are described in the overview section of each study
- Learn the fourteen (14) elements of the PSM rule and how they are implemented in industry
- Complete a pre-instructional survey, download and read supporting documentation, view lectures, and perform a post-instructional exam
