Ragagep 101

Safety and Health Division
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
April 30, 2013 - 8:00am-8:30am
Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEPs) play an important role in US-OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard (29 CFR 1910.119). Numerous RAGAGEP related citations have been issued under OSHA’s Refinery and PSM Covered Chemical Facility National Emphasis Programs (NEPs).  Despite the PSM standard having been in effect for over 20 years lack of compliance with PSM’s RAGAGEP requirements remains troubling.

This paper will review RAGAGEP basics from OSHA’s perspective, using examples from NEP inspections to illustrate common RAGAGEP compliance problems.
