On December 12, 2017, Eric J. Conn and Micah Smith of Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group presented a webinar regarding “OSHA’s PSM Standard & EPA’s RMP Rule.”
Following the tragic West Fertilizer explosion in 2013, then-Pres. Obama issued an Executive Order directing OSHA, EPA and other agencies to “modernize” how the government regulates chemical manufacturing. In response, OSHA and EPA took sweeping actions, from rulemaking and interpretation letters to overhaul the PSM and RMP regulatory landscape, to new enforcement initiatives, like a the Chemical Facilities and Petroleum Refineries PSM National Emphasis Program. When Pres. Trump took office, several key process safety and environmental regulations were delayed or repealed, new political leadership was installed, and enforcement policies were reexamined. This webinar will review the status and likely future of OSHA’s PSM and EPA’s RMP regulatory programs.
During this webinar, participants learned:
- OSHA’s and EPA’s Rulemaking Efforts to “modernize” the PSM and RMP regulations
- Recent significant OSH Review Commission Decisions regarding PSM
- The New Chem/Ref PSM National Emphasis Program and Lessons Learned from Prior PSM NEPs.
The December 12th webinar was the twelfth and final webinar event in Conn Maciel Carey’s 2017 OSHA Webinar Series. If you missed any of our prior webinars in the 2017 series or from past years’ OSHA Webinar Series, here is a link Conn Maciel Carey’s webinar archive.
