Abstract: OSHA is considering two regulatory actions concerning the Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals (PSM) standard. One action is to publish an advance notice of proposed rulemaking to address the issue of covering additional reactive chemicals that are not currently covered by PSM. Another action is a proposal to add chemicals that were not included in the OSHA standard but were included in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Risk Management Program (RMP) rule (one part of the RMP rule addresses compliance with the OSHA Process Safety Management rule). OSHA has been asked by representatives of the regulated community to bring its chemical list into closer alignment with the RMP rule.
