Process Safety Management
|The Process Safety Management standard is designed to prevent
disasters when facilities handle large amounts of
flammable or toxic chemicals. Although compliance with the
standard can require a large amount of effort, the
approach embodied within the standard is very simple.
In order to accomplish these goals, the PSM standard requires
the development of a written PSM program for each
facility exceeding the threshold. This program shall
address each of the twelve
elements of the standard.
- Make sure that the facility design is adequate for the
level of hazards being handled.
- Ensure that the process technology is well documented
and communicated to all who might effect changes in
- Ensure that the people operating and repairing the
equipment are adequately trained.
- Prevent changes to equipment, control systems, and
operating procedures from occurring without
Whether the process is a new design, or an old unit that
has recently exceeded the regulatory threshold, Curtis
Management Resources is prepared to provide the technical
expertise needed to meet the requirements of PSM.
