Process Safety Management

Ensuring safety and reliability for your processes

WHat is  Process Safety Management?

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.

Why is PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT Important?

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.

Yet, despite increasing compliance-driven and audit-based efforts to make hazardous material processes safer, most companies fail to give an effective answer as to how safety excellence can be achieved in a proactive and controlled manner.

WHat Goes Into an Effective Process Safety Management Program?

An effective Process Safety Management (PSM) program provides more than a response to regulatory needs; it can also be an essential contributor to an organization’s overall effectiveness.
