Ensuring safety and reliability for your processes
Process Safety Management (PSM) involves a variety of efforts to manage risks associated with process industries involving hazardous materials and chemicals. An effective PSM program combines management and engineering efforts to help mitigate catastrophes involving hazardous materials.
In 1984, a toxic chemical release occurred at a plant in Bhopal, India. The incident killed over 2,000 people and exposed over 600,000 to toxic chemical gas. This incident, and others, could have been prevented with an effective PSM program, and helped encourage effective PSM implementation.
