Revalidating Process Hazard Analyses
Save 10% with our Team Discount.
In this course attendees learn how to efficiently revalidate process hazard analyses (PHAs). By learning how to use a revalidation decision tree, attendees gain a productive revalidation tool that accounts for management goals, previous documentation, PHA quality, and operating history. Whether or not you are subject to the U.S. OSHA process safety management (PSM) regulation (29 CFR 1910.119), it is considered a recognized and generally accepted industry practice to update or revalidate PHAs or other types of risk analyses every 5 years to confirm that the "risk picture" of the process or facility has not changed.
