In 1992, OSHA issued standard 1910.119—the process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals—and the chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries transformed forever. Stringent performance-based mandates were put into place for “preventing or minimizing the consequences of catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals.”
Per the regulations, companies are required to have a process safety management (PSM) program with “a systematic approach to evaluating the whole chemical process.” ETA has been at the forefront of developing OSHA-specific programs and helping firms to meet the strict compliance guidelines of this standard.
Essentially, ETA is an industry expert with a clear differentiator in PSM program development and ongoing support. Our attention to detail, born out of initial work in the nuclear industry, is the source of our success and the hallmark of our approach.
