On Tuesday, November 16, 2021, Micah Smith and Beeta Lashkari presented a webinar regarding Process Safety Update: The Latest with OSHA PSM & EPA RMP.
After the Obama/Biden Administration’s efforts to “modernize” the way the federal government regulates chemical process safety, we saw much that rolled back, stalled, or amended as the Trump Administration implemented a de-regulatory agenda. As the regulatory ping-pong ball bounces back the other direction, the regulated community is left in limbo to see what will become of OSHA’s and EPA’s plans for process safety.
As the Biden Administration begins to make its mark in this arena, we are 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 reviewed the status and likely future of OSHA’s PSM Standard and EPA’s RMP Rule, big changes at the CSB, as well as other major process safety developments from the federal government, state governments, and industry groups.
