Potential Changes to OSHA’s PSM Regulations – Staying Ahead of the New Policy Changes

In May 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published materials related to potential changes to the Process Safety Management (PSM) regulation in preparation for convening a Small Business Advocacy Review (SBAR) Panel.  The SBAR Panel is the next step in the process of OSHA rulemaking to amend the PSM regulation.  The action comes as a part of the Obama Administration’s larger efforts to implement Executive Order 13650 - Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security.

The OSHA PSM SBAR Panel will be reviewing a number of regulatory changes being considered by the agency.  Potential areas for regulatory change include: 

  • Clarifying the PSM Exemption for Atmospheric Storage Tanks
  • Oil and Gas-Well Drilling and Servicing
  • Oil and Gas-Production Facilities
  • Expanding PSM Coverage and Requirements for Reactivity Hazards
  • Expanding the scope of Paragraph (e) by requiring safer technology and alternatives analysis
  • Updating the List of Highly Hazardous Chemicals in Appendix A of the PSM Standard
  • Revising the PSM Standard To Require Additional Management-System Elements
  • Amending Paragraph (d) of the PSM Standard To Require Evaluation of Updates to Applicable RAGAGEP
  • Clarifying the PSM Standard by Adding a Definition for RAGAGEP
  • Expanding the Scope of Paragraph (j) of the PSM Standard To Cover the Mechanical Integrity of Any Safety-Critical Equipment
  • Revising Paragraph (n) of the PSM Standard To Require Coordination of Emergency Planning With Local Emergency-Response Authorities
  • Amending Paragraph (m) of the existing PSM standard to require root cause analysis
  • Revising Paragraph (o) of the PSM Standard To Require Third-Party Compliance Audits
  • Expanding the Requirements of § 1910.109 To Cover Dismantling and Disposal of Explosives, Blasting Agents, and Pyrotechnics
  • Several additional minor modifications which largely codify existing OSHA interpretations of the PSM standard

The regulatory changes being considered have the potential to significantly impact thousands of facilities across the United States that are currently subject to PSM regulations and bring additional facilities under the regulation.  It is important for these facilities to understand the regulatory changes being considered and be prepared to respond.

If you’re looking for insights on how to stay ahead of policy changes and prepare for new regulatory responsibilities, you’ll receive much needed information in this webinar.
