PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT
MAI offers Process Safety Management (PSM) support for compliance to 29 CFR 1910.119. The intent of this regulation is prevent or minimize the consequences of a catastrophic release of toxic, reactive, flammable or explosive Highly Hazardous Chemicals (HHCs). A comprehensive approach to process safety management (PSM) is the best way for industry to safeguard against hazardous events in facility processes.
PSM cannot only assist industry in the prevention of catastrophic events; it can enhance employee knowledge of operations, improve technical procedures, maintain accurate process safety information, and increase overall facility productivity. PSM covers a multitude of safety elements, which can make the implementation of a PSM program a challenge.
MAI personnel have developed numerous process safety management (PSM) programs, and have written a wide variety of manuals and plans for facilities that produce, process, or store large quantities of HHCs. MAI has assisted clients in establishing Process Safety Information, written Operating Procedures, written Management of Change (MOC) procedures, established Mechanical Integrity (MIP) Programs, performed incident investigations and performed independent compliance audits and reviews of PSM programs.
