Process Safety Management

Refresher Training


Purpose of refresher training
Purpose of refresher training

  • Reminds employees of correct operations

  • Informs employees of changes to processes

  • Covers new information regarding changed policies and procedures

1a


When refresher training is required
When refresher training is required

  • A highly hazardous chemical (HHC) is introduced into a process

  • New equipmentis installed

2a


When refresher training is required1
When refresher training is required

  • Changes in parameters of a process occur

  • New proceduresare introduced

2b


When refresher training is required2
When refresher training is required

  • Provided at least every three years

  • More often if necessary

  • Ensures that each employee understands and adheres to current operating procedures

2c


Primary purpose of psm
Primary purpose of PSM

  • Continually attempt to reduce HHCs below threshold quantities

  • Use alternate chemicals if the chemical cannot be reduced

  • Monitor processes to ensure they are in compliance

3a


Definitions
Definitions

  • Highly hazardous chemicals are potentially:

    • Toxic

    • Reactive

    • Flammable

    • Explosive

4a


Definitions1
Definitions

  • Process - any activity involving a HHC, including:

    • Use

    • Storage

    • Manufacturing

    • Handling

    • On-site movement

    • Any combination of these

4b


Definitions2
Definitions

  • Process safety - safe operation of facilities that handle hazardous materials

  • Process safety management - application of management principles and standards to identify, understand, and control process hazards

4c


Elements of the psm standard
Elements of the PSM standard

  • Employee participation

  • Process safety information

  • Process hazard analysis

  • Operating procedures

5a


Elements of the psm standard1
Elements of the PSM standard

  • Employee training

Safety and health considerations
Safety and health considerations

  • Includes anything likely to cause acute or chronic health problems; or

  • Could result in process-related injuries & accidents

6a


Operating limits
Operating limits

  • Operating limits-related issues include:

    • Voltage limits of equipment

    • Amperage limits of equipment

    • Phase limits of equipment

7a


Operating limits1
Operating limits

  • Process chemical limits-related issues include:

    • Can the equipment handle the properties of the chemical?

    • Does the process maintain the chemical’s proper physical properties?

7b


Operating limits2
Operating limits

  • Process chemical limits-related issues include:

    • Does the process cause the chemical to break down?

    • Does the process cause the chemical to boil or freeze?
