Topic: Process Safety Management (PSM): Past, Present, and Future
What are some historical process safety incidents that led to the formation of the Process Safety Management (PSM) standard? Now, more than 25 years later, are process safety incidents still happening?
In this presentation Wesley Carter, CCPSC, of Amplify Process Safety will discuss process safety incidents of the past and how they informed current OSHA PSM and EPA RMP requirements. Next, he’ll cover a few recent incidents in industry that highlight the continued need for these regulations before closing with the importance of being a good steward of process safety as an engineer.
