Course Description

This course explains how to comply with the requirements of EPA's 112(r) Risk Management Program rule (40 CFR Part 68). There are different requirements depending on whether the facility qualifies for Program 1, 2 or 3 status. We'll explain which of these apply to you, and show you how to develop the appropriate program. All of the requirements are explained, along with the many issues that they raise. You'll learn how to develop prevention plans appropriate for each of the different program levels. We'll also show you how to save money by incorporating your existing programs and procedures.


Explain in detail the requirements of EPA's RMP regulation; outline how facilities should respond for each program level; and describe how to integrate with OSHA PSM and other programs to satisfy their requirements.
