Facilities with quantities of hazardous chemicals over OSHA's threshold levels must comply with OSHA's Process Safety Management standard.  Among others, PSM applies to facilities with over 10,000 pounds of anhydrous ammonia contained in a refrigeration system.   This standard has been required since 1994.


You already know you have to comply with OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard and EPA’s Risk Management Planning requirements. The question is how to do it without letting it take over your entire job. You may have tried various solutions in the past and been unsatisfied with boilerplate results that didn’t fit your facility and weren’t workable.


We are experts in refrigeration system compliance and we specialize in the hard parts. We work on standard operating procedures (SOPs), mechanical integrity, code compliance, setting up computerized maintenance scheduling and tracking systems, emergency planning and training and much more. We train maintenance and engineering personnel in PSM and generally accepted good engineering practices to help ensure continuing compliance.
