Process Safety Management

Course Objectives

This is a foundation course for Process Safety Management as applicable to petroleum refinery. The course provides an in-depth study of each PSM element of HSEMS PSM program and how the overall architecture applies to each. The course introduces each PSM element and the specific guidelines for integrating PSM element requirements into other corporate programs (such as quality and reliability programs) and evaluating program compliance throughout the implementation phase. This course also covers how to expand your PSM program to include the RBPS (risk-based process safety) elements as proposed by the CCPS (Centre for Chemical Process Safety), AICHE, PSM program.

Course Outline

  To interpret the performance-based requirements of the U.S. OSHA PSM and EPA risk                management standards, and learn about related industry standards

·         The elements of process safety that are missing from typical PSM systems, including Human Factors elements (communication, human system interface, work environment, staffing, and fitness for duty), Facility Siting element, Project

·         Risk Management, Senior Leadership and Accountability.  The Risk-Based Process Safety (RBPS) guide (2007) from CCPS/AICHE is reviewed so you can understand how to close critical gaps

·         Multiple options for implementing an effective need-specific program

·         facility or a corporation

o   How to avoid costly implementation mistakes

o   For each element:

o   How to develop written programs to meet PSM requirements

o   How to incorporate and integrate the PSM element requirements into other corporate programs (other corporate management systems)
