Process Safety Management - Executive Level Overview

Course Description

Many employers who are required to comply with OSHA’s 1910.119 Process Safety Management (PSM) standard have received basic training in OSHA’s Process Safety Management Standard. However, many times, executives, engineers, and legal counsel do not fully understand scope, schedule, and budget for managing an effective process safety program. This course will provide a basic understanding of the executive’s responsibilities in managing a process safety program. You will review all 14 key elements of an effective PSM program, and how they may integrate with existing and sometimes overlapping current company policies.
