PSM Essentials Course

PSM Essentials Course Sept 2023

Learn the fundamentals of the OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.119 for Process Safety Management (PSM) to prevent or minimize the consequences of catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals. The concept of RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices) is emphasized. Case studies, lessons learned, and practical examples are incorporated throughout the course to demonstrate principles and enrich learning. Training will be delivered at our Houston, TX office November 8-9, 2023.

Expert Instruction

With over 20 years of engineering experience in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petrochemical industries, Neil Prophet is well-versed in the codes, standards, and regulatory requirements that a process safety expert must know.

This 2-day course will empower learners with the knowledge to help prevent or mitigate potentially catastrophic incidents. All PSM elements that OSHA inspectors look for in a Process Safety Management (PSM) program will be examined. The course will offer best practices for putting these elements into practice or improving your own PSM program. Each element works in tandem with the others to build an effective Process Safety Management (PSM) system.
