PEC – 20 –25 PRINCIPLES AND INTRODUCTION TO PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT (PSM) APPLYING PROCESS HAZARD ANALYSIS (PHA)
PEC-20-25 02/20/2020 de 6:00PM a 9:00PM
The major objective of process safety management (PSM) of highly hazardous chemicals is to prevent unwanted releases of hazardous chemicals especially into locations that could expose employees and others to serious hazards. An effective process safety management program requires a systematic approach to evaluating the whole chemical process.
Using this approach, the process design, process technology, process changes, operational and maintenance activities and procedures, non-routine activities and procedures, emergency preparedness plans and procedures, training programs, and other elements that affect the process are all considered in the evaluation.
The process safety management (PSM) standard targets highly hazardous chemicals that have the potential to cause a catastrophic incident. The purpose of the standard as a whole is to aid employers in their efforts to prevent or mitigate episodic chemical releases that could lead to a catastrophe in the workplace and possibly in the surrounding community.
