Process safety management is a systematic approach to managing risk in processes that are necessary for the production of goods and services. Process safety management includes proactive hazard identification, risk assessment, and risk mitigation activities, as well as reactive emergency response activities.
The process safety management system is a combination of management systems, procedures, and practices to ensure safe operations at all times. It includes plans for emergency response, investigation, and training for all employees who work with hazardous materials or processes.
Process safety management encompasses the full range of activities required to prevent, detect, suppress, and mitigate potentially hazardous situations that may arise during operations. It requires ongoing training for all employees who work with hazardous materials or who operate hazardous equipment; effective procedures for identifying hazards and risks; design controls such as engineering safeguards; adequate personal protective equipment for workers; an effective system for preventing unauthorized entry into areas where hazardous conditions might exist; a documented plan for responding quickly when an incident occurs; continuous improvement in all aspects of process safety management; regular audits by an independent third party; active participation by all personnel at all levels of responsibility throughout the organization; and full cooperation among stakeholders including regulators and insurance carriers.
