Registration and Continental Breakfast
|8:00-8:10 am||Welcome and Opening Remarks|
This session will include an introduction to the standards and provide an overview of the scope, applicability and exemptions available for companies.
In order to prepare a comprehensive PSM and/or RMP program, a company must compile all available information on the chemicals involved in a process, the technologies of the process and the equipment used. This session will focus on this key element.
|11:05 am-12:30 pm||
Where OSHA’s PSM standard focuses on what impact a chemical release may have on facility employees, the EPA RMP looks at the potential impacts to the community at large. This session will delve into the methods to assess offsite consequences for worst-case and alternative-case release scenarios.
Many elements of the two regulations are very similar. This session will provide tips and tricks for ensuring compliance.
For all of the similarities between the programs, there are some elements that are different. We will highlight the differences which may lead to unintentional violations.
This final session will look at the basic methodologies for conducting a PHA. We will provide the tools necessary to assist you in complying with these regulations.
