Process Safety Update: The Latest with OSHA PSM & EPA RMP
Presented by Eric J. Conn, Micah Smith, and Beeta Lashkari

After the Obama/Biden Administration’s efforts to “modernize” the way the government regulates chemical process safety, we saw much those endeavors rolled back, stalled, or amended as the Trump Administration advanced its de-regulatory agenda. As the regulatory ping-pong ball bounces back the other direction the regulated community is left to wonder again what will come of OSHA’s and EPA’s plans for process safety.

As the Biden Administration begins to make its mark in this arena, we will be tracking rulemaking and enforcement from OSHA, EPA and the CSB, and whether and how far these agencies will go back to the previous policies to modernize the applicable regulations.

This webinar will review the status and likely future of OSHA’s PSM Standard and EPA’s RMP Rule, as well as other major process safety developments from the federal government, state governments, and industry groups.

Nov 16, 2021 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
