What are the governing regulations?
On July 17, 1990, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a plan for the management of hazards associated with processes using acutely hazardous materials, which resulted in the establishment of the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.119 - Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals. OSHA has been working in tandem with approved states to enforce the requirements of the process safety standard contained in 29 CFR 1910.119 ever since. This course provides an overview of the approved state plan of California for the process safety management of acutely hazardous materials, as provided in the California Code of Regulations CCR Title 8 Section 5189.

Who must take this training?
Every employee currently involved in operating a process or a newly assigned process must be trained in an overview of the process and its operating procedures. A facility's PSM program, therefore, must apply to contractors performing maintenance or repair, turnaround, major renovation, or specialty work on or adjacent to a covered process.

Case Study: On August 6, 2012, the Chevron USA Inc. Refinery in Richmond, California, experienced a catastrophic release of flammable hydrocarbon process fluid as a result of a ruptured pipe. The accidental release of the hydrocarbon process fluid partially vaporized into a large vapor cloud that engulfed 19 Chevron employees and ignited. Fortunately, all of the employees escaped, narrowly avoiding serious injury. Nevertheless, the ignition of the flammable portion of the vapor cloud caused a large plume of particulates and vapor that traveled across the Richmond area. Approximately 15,000 people from the surrounding area sought medical treatment due to the release.

Key Takeaways: In the 10 years prior to the incident, experienced Chevron personnel had repeatedly recommended that the company inspect 100 percent of the components on the carbon steel piping, which is susceptible to sulfidation corrosion. But Chevron management did not implement these recommendations. If they had, this crisis could have been avoided.
