In response to the health and safety concern presented by the coronavirus in essential industries, OSHA and the EPA have both published enforcement discretion notices that are meant to add some breathing room for facilities juggling regulatory compliance with personal safety. However, the stipulations put in place for facilities to lean on these temporary enforcement policies, especially with regard to the OSHA PSM and EPA RMP standards, are vague as to what facilities must do to qualify for leniency in compliance. Facilities must demonstrate “good faith efforts”, but what does that really mean with regard to PSM/RPM program elements?
This webinar will explore how COVID-19 can affect several major elements of your PSM/RMP program, what a“good faith effort” looks like to comply with that respective element, and howto document your decisions to ensure both OSHA and the EPA agree that acitation is not warranted. Will your facility properly leverage the interim enforcement policies to ensure regulator discretion is in your favor?
Join us as we examine how to determine the best way to align these enforcement discretion policies with internal PSM/RMP program goals so that your process safety program integrity is not sacrificed for a temporary reprieve on regulatory obligations.
