1.0 INTRODUCTION

While performing services for clients covered by OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) Standard, _____ employees have the potential to be involved in an unexpected catastrophic release of toxic, reactive, or flammable liquids and gases involving highly hazardous chemicals that may not have been properly controlled. Since 1990, OSHA has established requirements for the management of hazards associated with processes using highly hazardous chemicals to help assure safe and healthful workplaces. The intent of this written program is to make employees aware of contractor responsibilities when performing work at host-facility job sites, so as to prevent or minimize consequences of catastrophic releases.

2.0 TRAINING

All _____ employees will be initially trained in the PSM standard requirements, hazard communication and assessment, accident/incident reporting, the emergency action plan, or other requirements necessary to perform their job, prior to their job assignment at a PSM covered facility. In addition, ongoing safety training during each employee’s tenure will include hands-on training or pre-job safety meetings will be routinely conducted, and each employee will be required to attend a site-specific orientation at each host-facility job site as required by the particular facility’s training guidelines.

Documented training will be conducted by professional training institutions, host-facility operators, or by _____. Written or oral testing methods will demonstrate that each employee has received and understood this information. Documentation, which contains the identity of the employee, the date of training and the means used to verify that the employee understood the training, will be located in the Company’s Office.

3.0 PROCESS HAZARDS OVERVIEW

Each host-facility operator will inform or make available any and all information concerning each process unit’s known potential fire, explosion, or toxic release hazards related to the assigned process and services to be performed. This is usually presented in the form of a process hazard overview developed for each specific process unit.

A review of SDS chemical information would reveal chemical:

  • Toxicity
  • Permissible Exposure Limits
  • Physical data
  • Reactivity data
