Infographic: Process Safety Management

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has updated its enforcement guidance for the Process Safety Management (PSM) standard. The updated enforcement directive became effective January 24. Here’s what you need to know about PSM compliance.

OSHA established its PSM standard in 1992 in response to catastrophic incidents worldwide in chemical manufacturing. Workplaces covered by the standard include those in chemical manufacturing and petroleum refining. However, certain substances, equipment, and processes in other industries are also covered.
