lack of awareness could be
costlier than you thought
Are your process safety
risks under control?
Inspiring Excellence
about the presentation
Process Safety Management (PSM) is a concern
in any of the industries who store, handle and
process hazardous chemicals & gases. The risks
related to process safety are often managed in
an isolated way.
This presentation will help organisations to
manage process safety risks in a more structured
fashion.

What is Process Safety Management System?
The Process Safety Management System is a
comprehensive management system that proactively
avoids incidents in the hazardous industries like
chemical plants, oil and gas installations, fertilizer,
pharmaceutical, explosives and that handle, store or
process toxic or flammable chemicals.
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Process Safety Management
System integrates different aspects
of risks in a facility and puts them
under the control of a management
system.
By establishing a risk based
awareness of the safety impacts of
technology, personnel and the
management, the system provides
a dynamic environment for
continual improvement.

Action Points
Develop a written plan of action to
implement the employee participation
required by PSM.
Consult – provide platforms to share their
views, advices, suggestions, alerts
Involve people in hazard identification
and analysis process
Provide access to safety information
…1
Employee
Participation
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Process Safety Information:… 2
a compilation of written process safety information that helps to identify and
understand the hazards posed by those processes involving highly hazardous
chemicals.
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Process safety information
must include :
Hazards of the highly hazardous chemicals in the
process shall consist of at least the following:
• Toxicity
• Permissible exposure limits
• Physical data
• Reactivity data
• Corrosivity data, and
• Thermal and chemical stability data, and
hazardous effects of inadvertent mixing of
different materials
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
• A block flow diagram or simplified process
flow diagram,
• Process chemistry
• Maximum intended inventory
• Safe upper and lower limits for such items as
temperatures, pressures, flows or
compositions, and
• An evaluation of the consequences of
deviations, including those affecting the safety
and health of employees
Information on the technology of the process
must include at least the following:
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Methods
• What-if
• Checklist
• What-if/checklist
• Hazard and operability study
(HAZOP)
• Failure mode and effects analysis
(FMEA)
• Fault tree analysis
• An appropriate equivalent
methodology

identifying, evaluating, and controlling the hazards of
processes involving highly hazardous chemicals.

www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Tasks and procedures related to the
covered process must be appropriate,
clear, consistent, and most importantly,
well communicated to employees.
Steps for each operating phase:
• Initial start up
• Normal operations
• Temporary operations
• Emergency shutdown,
• Emergency operations
• Normal shutdown and
• Start up following a turnaround or
after an emergency shut-down
4Operating Procedure
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Operating limits:
• Consequences of deviation, and steps required correcting or
avoiding deviation. Safety and health considerations
• Properties of, and hazards presented by, the chemicals used in the
process
• Precautions necessary to prevent exposure, including engineering
controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment
• Control measures to be taken if physical contact or airborne
exposure occurs
• Quality control for raw materials and control of hazardous chemical
inventory levels; and
• Any special or unique hazards
• Safety systems (e.g., interlocks, detection or suppression systems)
and their functions
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
The employer must develop and implement safe
work practices to provide for the control of hazards
during work activities such as
• Lockout / tagout
• Confined space entry
• Opening process equipment or piping; and
• Access control over entrance into a facility by
maintenance, contractor, laboratory, or other
support personnel
These safe work practices must equally apply both
to employees and to contractor employees.
5 Safe work practice
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Contractor Control 6
PSM includes special provisions for contractors and their employees
to emphasize the importance of everyone taking care that they do
nothing to endanger those working nearby who may work for
another employer.
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Training:
• Initial Training
• Refresher Training
Training Documentation is important
7
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Prior to the introduction of a highly hazardous chemical to a
process, the pre-start-up safety review must confirm that the
following:
• The constructions and equipments are in accordance
with design specifications
• Safety, operating, maintenance, and emergency
procedures are in place and are adequate
• A process hazard analysis has been performed for new
facilities and recommendations have been resolved or
implemented before start up, and modified facilities
meet the management of change requirements; and
• Training of each employee involved in operating a
process has been completed
8Pre Start up Safety Review
www.verde.co.in
Inspiring Excellence
Mechanical Integrity:
• Pressure vessels and storage tanks
• Piping systems (including piping
components such as valves)
• Relief and vent systems and devices
• Emergency shutdown systems
• Controls (including monitoring
devices and sensors, alarms and
interlocks); and
• Pumps

Management of change
These written procedures must ensure
• The technical basis for the proposed change
• Impact of the change on employee safety and
health
• Modifications to operating procedures
• Necessary time period for the change, and
• Authorization requirements for the proposed
change

Editor's Notes

  1. A crucial part of the process safety management program is a thorough investigation of incidents to identify the chain of events and causes so that corrective measures can be developed and implemented. Accordingly, PSM requires the investigation of each incident that resulted in, or could reasonably have resulted in, a catastrophic release of a highly hazardous chemical in the workplace
  2. To ensure the compliance and effectiveness of certain process safety management, employers must establish a process of evaluated compliance with the provisions of PSM at regular intervals. This will verify that the procedures and practices developed under the standard are adequate and are being followed. The compliance audit must be conducted by personnel knowledgeable in the process and a report of the findings of the audit must be developed and documented noting deficiencies that have been corrected.
  3. Employers must make available all information necessary to comply with PSM to those persons responsible for compiling the process safety information, those developing the process hazard analysis, those responsible for developing the operating procedures, and those performing incident investigations, emergency planning and response, and compliance audits, without regard to the possible trade secret status of such information. Nothing in PSM, however, precludes the employer from requiring those persons to enter into confidentiality agreements not to disclose the information.
