Process Safety Update: OSHA’s PSM Standard, EPA’s RMP Rule, and the CSB
President Biden’s OSHA and EPA are working to transform the process safety regulatory landscape. EPA has [presumably] now pushed out its RMP Amendments creating significant misalignment with OSHA’s PSM Standard. OSHA has continued to work on its reforms of the PSM Standard, but still has a ways to go. The CSB has now moved from its quorum of one at the start of the Biden Administration to a crowded Board room, and has [presumably] staffed up its investigation teams.

This webinar will review these and other process safety related regulatory and enforcement updates at OSHA (and the State OSH Plans), EPA, and CSB.
