Extensive industry and regulatory knowledge are essential for evaluating PSM and RMP programs. Our lead auditor brings this knowledge with both industry and regulatory experience as an OSHA PSM compliance specialist and has conducted over 200 Chemical and Refinery National Emphasis Compliance Audits and inspections. Our unique background allows us to conduct compliance evaluation and provide solutions that result in the continuous improvement in process safety, with an emphasis on program implementation. Understanding and addressing gaps in your process safety programs lead to safer facilities, high moral, and the retention of highly skilled and trained personnel.
PSS compliance audits address the 14 elements of the PSM standard and other related SHMS items. Our experience has found that we can expect 10-20 gaps, depending on the facility, that could result in OSHA or EPA violations. A violation of the OSHA 1910.119 standard is considered serious in nature and therefore can result in a fine ranging from $12,934 to $129,336 each.
The PSS audit/gap analysis has an excellent return on your investment not only in avoidance of government citations and penalties, but the time involved for abatement, plus the negative impact that a government news release could have on the reputation of your company in the community.
