The 30-Year Update

ByIan Sutton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In 2022 OSHA (the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration) published a proposed update to its Process Safety Management standard. This is the first change to the standard since its release in 1992. OSHA has identified 24 topics which they would like to change, modify or enhance. This book describes each of these topics and discusses how they can be implemented. The topics include: • Oil and gas drilling and production • Natural disasters and extreme temperatures • Chemical and explosive hazards • Retail facilities • RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices) • Defining the limits of covered processes • Root cause analysis • Stop work authority • Process hazards analysis recommendations, • Information management • Organizational changes • Equipment and mechanical integrity • Local emergency response • Third-party audits • Process safety management systems This book is both thorough and practical. It not only describes the proposed updates in detail, it also provides practical guidance as to how these changes can be implemented in either an operating facility or a design office.
