OSHA seeks comments on three PSM guidance documents

Guidelines address pyrotechnics, manufacturing, small businesses, storage facilities

Posted September 15, 2016

OSHA is asking interested parties to submit comments on three guidance documents related to chemical safety. Each of these guidelines for compliance with OSHA's Process Safety Management (PSM) standard addresses a different area: pyrotechnics manufacturing, small businesses, and storage facilities.

The documents were developed by a working group that includes OSHA and five other federal departments and agencies established to oversee chemical facility safety and security under President Obama's Executive Order 13650 “Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security.” The EO was issued following several chemical facility catastrophes in the United States.

Comments must be submitted by September 23. To view details on the guidance documents and to provide comments visit the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
