Course Description

OSHA's PSM Standard (29 CFR 1910.119) and EPA's Risk Management Program rule (40 CFR Part 68) both require the development and implementation of a program to prevent catastrophic accidents for covered processes. These are performance-based regulations and are subject to ongoing interpretations and clarifications from the regulatory agencies. The prevention programs are wide-ranging and cover virtually every aspect of a company's operations. Companies are often unsure on what constitutes full compliance with the regulations.

This course explains how to ensure your prevention program is designed to meet the requirements of these performance-based regulations and implemented through an effective management system.

Documented examples are provided and discussed and workshops are used to enhance understanding of the details of implementation for key PSM elements.

Course attendees receive a detailed course manual, workshop materials, and electronic copies of regulatory standards and resource materials.


Provide an understanding of what is required for compliance with PSM regulations and guidance on how to ensure programs are properly implemented.

Target Audience

Managers, process safety and risk management coordinators and others responsible for satisfying OSHA PSM regulatory requirements.
