Understanding and Application of RMP/PSM Requirements

This 2 day course is designed for plant and corporate staff who are responsible for elements of the RMP and PSM programs. Beneficial for new and experienced staff alike, it provides not only a broad understanding of the RMP and PSM requirements, but also discusses proposed changes to the requirements and recent enforcement activities. Throughout the course, the instructor utilizes their industry & consulting experience and solicits attendee discussion to highlight challenges and best practices to implement and manage RMP / PSM programs at their facility. Key program elements with ongoing requirements such as Management of Change, Mechanical Integrity, Process Safety Information, Operating Procedures, and Emergency Response Plans are discussed in more detail. Instructor experience, group discussions, and examples of enforcement citations will be utilized to maximize understanding of this material. Course completion will enable attendees to:

What others are saying about this course
  • The materials are awesome - I don't see how they can be improved. The slides had great detail and the hand outs were exceptional. I am already using the information I was given last week and putting it to use.
  • Instructor conversations & hard copy material were completely "in-sync" with clear direction of the requirements. Even when the requirements were difficult to follow, it was well explained.
