On January 22, 2008, OSHA and the Process Safety Alliance, OSHA, the American Chemical Society (ACS), American Chemistry Council (ACC), API, Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS, a technical alliance of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers), Chlorine Institute (CI), National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA), Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association (SOCMA), United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed an Alliance to provide the organizations’ members and the general public, including small businesses, with information, guidance, and access to training resources in the field of process safety including the management of chemical reactivity hazards. In particular, the organizations worked together to assist in preventing catastrophic explosions, fires, and the toxic releases, thereby protecting the employees, the manufacturing facilities, the environment, and the public.
Based on discussions regarding the future of the Alliance, OSHA and the Organization in the Process Safety Alliance agreed to retroactively conclude the agreement as of January 22, 2010. A number of successes resulted from OSHA and Process Safety Alliance working together to meet the Alliance’s goals. For example:
