Evaluation and Control

An effective process safety management (PSM) program requires a systematic approach to evaluating the whole chemical process. The following references aid in evaluating and controlling process hazards in the workplace.

  • 29 CFR 1910.119, Process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals. OSHA Standard.
    • Appendix C, Compliance guidelines and recommendations for process safety management (Nonmandatory). Serves as a non-mandatory guideline to assist employers and employees in complying with the requirements of this section, as well as provides other helpful recommendations and information.
  • OSHA Technical Manual (OTM). OSHA Directive TED 01-00-015 [TED 1-0.15A], (January 20, 1999).
  • Chemical Reactivity Worksheet. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Office of Response and Restoration. Provides information about the reactivity of substances or mixtures of substances.
