Process Safety Management

Process safety programs that go beyond regulatory needs and contribute to your organization’s overall effectiveness

Process Safety Management Saves Lives

Process Safety Management (PSM) programs work to prevent fires, explosions and releases in chemical process facilities, or facilities that handle hazardous waste by providing a regimented framework for maintaining operating systems and processes that handle these substances. Process safety management programs usually include a variety of components including mechanical integrity of equipment, inspection and testing, addressing human element hazards, training programs, dust hazard analysis, and more.

Managing Risks in Hazardous Environments

In 1984, a pesticide plant in Bhopal, India released almost 40 tons of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. This accident led to thousands of fatalities, hundreds of injuries and decades of health, environmental and financial impacts. Due to incidents such as this, process safety standards and programs such as OSHA 1910.119 “Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals” and NFPA 652 “Standard for the Fundamentals of Combustible Dust” have been developed to avoid such disasters.

Process Safety (PS) is of utmost importance as the consequences of one incident can cause significant problems and losses across the entire business. Chemical and other industries must stay abreast of developments and adjust their programs accordingly.

Our Process Safety management Program Includes:

An effective Process Safety Management program requires a systematic approach to evaluating an entire process. Using this approach, the following elements are considered in a PSM evaluation and program:

  • Process design
  • Process technology
  • Operational and maintenance activities and procedures
  • Non-routine activities and procedures
  • Emergency preparedness plans and procedures
  • Training programs
