142 The Process Safety Regulatory Climate - 2017

Tuesday, March 28, 2017: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
214CD (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Within the past year, both EPA and OSHA have issued (or intend to issue) proposed changes in the US regulations governing process safety management (PSM). In addition, California has imposed (or intends to impose) additional regulatory requirements on refineries in that state. Finally, there are other states and localities (e.g., New Jersey, Delaware, Contra Costa County) that have additional regulatory requirements “beyond” the national requirements. This session welcomes papers on (1) changes to national or state regulations, including their status and potential impacts and (2) experiences with applying additional or more stringent regulations at the state or local level.
