The objectives of this course are to provide a fundamental overview of Process Safety Management (PSM) as outlined in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHAs) regulation 29 CFR 1910.119 in managing highly hazardous chemicals in the workplace. Professional Engineers are primary caregivers in the application of this standard, impacting every discipline of engineering practice.

This standard applies to many manufacturing industries beyond petroleum and chemical production. Examples of industries are pharmaceutical production, agricultural food processing, mining, and metallurgical production.
