Regulatory Changes Ahead: Preparing for PSM and RMP Updates

Register now!

Cost: FREE for Members, $99 for Non-Members

OSHA and the U.S. EPA have proposed changes to the Process Safety Management (PSM) rule and the Risk Management Program (RMP) rule that may affect corporate EHS processes.  The changes would broaden the applicability of the rules, alter the manner in which compliance with the rule is demonstrated and, in a worst-case scenario, impose significant design standard requirements on affected equipment.

Although PSM and RMP currently only apply to a limited number of facilities (i.e., those that have more than a threshold amount in a process), both OSHA and the Clean Air Act have "General Duty" clauses that extend the requirements of both rules to otherwise unaffected facilities. A recent USEPA enforcement initiative under the RMP regulation illustrates the seriousness with which the agencies view process safety and risk management as everyone's responsibility.

The presentation will include:

  • Overview of the proposed changes to the PSM and RMP rules
  • Discussion of the General Duty clauses under both acts and the link to corporate EHS responsibilities
  • Review of USEPA's recent RMP enforcement initiative (centered around anhydrous ammonia systems) and how those results, when viewed through recent case studies, may shape these future regulations

Speakers:

  • Matthew Traister, P.E., Vice President & National Compliance Practice Leader; O'Brien & Gere
