Process Safety Update: The Latest with OSHA PSM & EPA RMP [Webinar Recording]

On Tuesday, December 13, 2022, the attorneys in Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Workplace Safety Practice Group presented a webinar in the 2022 OSHA Webinar Series regarding a Process Safety Update: The Latest with OSHA PSM & EPA RMP.

Presented by:
Eric ConnMicah Smith, and Beeta Lashkari
of Conn Maciel Carey’s OSHA Practice Group

And Special Guest Clyde Trombettas
(former head of Cal/OSHA’s PSM Unit)

Nearly two full years in, and the Biden Administration has been making its mark in the process safety arena, rolling back the rollbacks of the RMP Rule promulgated during the Obama Administration, and dusting off the PSM reform rulemaking that had begun at that same time. The CSB has also been changing the process safety landscape with new guidance about its Accidental Release Reporting Rule and other investigation activities.

We are also pleased to announce that we were joined by a special guest co-presenter, Mr. Clyde Trombettas. Mr. Trombettas recently-retired from Cal/OSHA as the Program Manager for Cal/OSHA’s Process Safety Management Unit. He provided an update regarding Cal/OSHA’s PSM team, enforcement trends, and other PSM regulatory developments.

This process safety regulatory update:

    • Reviewed the status of OSHA’s and EPA’s process safety rulemakings;
    • Discussed the data from and new guidance about CSB’s Accidental Release Reporting Rule;
    • Analyzed other process safety related developments at OSHA under the Biden Administration; and
    • Covered the latest with Cal/OSHA’s PSM program

We are pleased to share these links to a copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar.
