Basics Of Risk Management Plan & Process Safety Management Programs

The Risk Management Program Plan (RSM) rule, governed by the EPA, and the Process Safety Management (PSM) of Highly Hazardous Chemicals rule, governed by OSHA, were both designed to prevent or minimize the consequence of accidental highly hazardous chemicals releases. Often, RSM and PSM programs go hand-in-hand for many industries. PPM has experience with RSM and PSM across a variety of industrial facilities and can help you understand, adhere to, or mitigate consequences from these programs and their overseers.
