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.

The potential for the unexpected release of chemicals is ever-present in industries that use acutely hazardous materials that may be toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive, or that exhibit a combination of these properties. When acutely hazardous materials are not properly controlled, their accidental release can have devastating and far-reaching consequences. This course provides information specific to the California standard for process safety management for general industries. The standard emphasizes the management of hazards associated with acutely hazardous materials and provides the necessary information for establishing a comprehensive process safety management program that incorporates procedures, management practices, and technologies to ensure safety in the workplace.
