NEED HELP DETERMINING WHAT EPA RMP PROGRAM LEVEL YOUR FACILITY NEEDS TO COMPLY WITH?
OVERWHELMED WITH OSHA’S PSM REGULATION AND REQUIREMENTS?OUR SAFETY PROFESSIONALS ARE HERE TO HELP YOU NAVIGATE BOTH OSHA AND EPA REGULATIONS AND DEVELOP A PSM/RMP PROGRAM SPECIFIC TO YOUR PROCESS.
WHAT IS PSM AND RMP?
Process Safety Management (Title 20 of CFR Section 1910.119) is a regulation promulgated by OSHA in 1992, and the Risk Management Plan (RMP) (Title 40 CFR Part 68) was promulgated by the EPA in 1996.
PSM and RMP are the framework of policies, processes, and procedures used to manage safety and health throughout an organization involved with highly hazardous chemicals (HHC).
