PSM Project Management Compliance Strategy

Employing Project Management Process Principles to Implement Process Safety Management (PSM) Compliance Strategy.

Follow procedures outlined in “Guidelines for Pressure Relief and Effluent Handling”, American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) as compliance strategy to meet OSHA 29CFR1910.119 Process Safety Management Standard

"For example the AIChE has published technical reports on topics such as two-phase flow for venting devices. This type of technically recognized report would constitute good engineering practice." OSHA Appendix C 1910.119 Compliance Guidelines and Recommendations for Process Safety Managment.
