Recorded at AIHce EXP 2023

Industrial hygienists have the relevant knowledge, skills, and abilities to excel in the discipline of chemical process safety and risk management planning. This PDC will highlight the important role IHs can play in the administration of OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) and EPA's Risk Management Plan (RMP) regulations. Attendees will explore and apply various tools used in executing all elements of the PSM and RMP rules. Topics going from a basic Process Hazard Analysis to a complex Layer of Protection Analysis, include consequence analysis, results, interpretation, and the application of risk reduction principles to be effective PSM/RMP practitioners.

Participants will take away knowledge on: a) applying process safety principles; b) understanding the OSHA PSM regulation and EPA RMP; and c) applying process safety principles to current and future processes to ensure safe operation.
