Ramboll offers Process Safety Management (PSM) to ensure safe and healthy workplaces for all types of industries. This US standard was set forth by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to prevent unwanted releases of hazardous chemicals into locations that could expose workers to highly hazardous chemicals.
PSM is required by OSHA for manufacturers exceeding allowable amounts of flammable liquids and certain high-hazard, toxic or reactive chemicals. Many manufacturers operating within OSHA’s allowable limits have also adopted the standard to ensure their industrial processes are safe and efficient.
Our experts assist clients through the requirements of PSM and development of compliance programs ranging from making recommendations to developing procedures for compliance programs and implementation. We also can help clients to facilitate a process hazard analysis (PHA) of a facility to identify the hazards of a process to effectively minimize the associated safety and health risks. Our PSM services include:
- Employee Participation
- Process Safety Information
- Process Hazards Analysis (PHA)
- Operating Procedures
- Contractors Support
- Pre-startup Safety Review
- Mechanical Integrity
- Hot Work Permits
- Change Management
- Incident Investigation
- Emergency Planning and Response
- Compliance Audits
All PSM services provided by Ramboll are completed under the direction of registered professional engineers. We also have developed and maintain a baseline set of established documentation required for PSM compliance that is transferred to the client as part of our service.
