Compliance with Standards
Identifying and addressing relevant process safety standards, codes, regulations, and laws over the life of a process is one of the five elements in the RBPS pillar of committing to process safety. Resources in this section describe processes for maintaining adherence to applicable standards, codes, regulations, and laws (standards), the attributes of a standards system, and the steps an organization might take to implement the standards element. Start with reading an Introduction to Compliance with Standards, then explore resources like the Process Safety and Risk Management of Chemical Parks and more below.
The concepts and associated fire protection and life safety features contained in control areas, NFPA 45 laboratory units, and High Hazard occupancies are discussed and applied to the chemical facility setting.
This informative webinar provides an overview of OSHA's Chemical NEP, and outlines recommended proactive measures to prepare for Chemical NEP inspection.
