Compliance with the Process Safety Management rule, OSHA 1910.119, is a requirement for any plant processing highly hazardous materials exceeding threshold quantities. Now you can learn how existing industry standards can help you meet that requirement. This online course provides an introduction to how industry standards and standards organizations can be used to build a Process Safety Management (PSM) program that complies with the rule.

Take this course and learn the elements of the rule that can be supported with existing industry standards. You’ll learn how to build a hierarchy of documents from industry standards to plant procedures that address the rule’s requirements. You will also learn how benchmarking and reaching out to other organizations can address areas where a specific standard does not exist.

You will understand how specific standards, such as mechanical integrity, must be implemented to meet sections of the rule. You will get an overview of the documentation requirements for compliance. And you’ll see how industry standards help assure compliance with RAGAGEP, or Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices. You’ll also look at examples of what results from lack of compliance.
