Samantha Catone, a member of the firm’s Construction and General Liability practices, discusses OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) standard in an article for Modern Contractor Solutions.

In “OSHA’s PSM Standard,” Samantha advises business owners and contractors on the history and application of PSM standard, including covered processes and exemptions.

“OSHA’s PSM standard aims to prevent the release of toxic, reactic, flammable, and explosive chemicals into a facility and the environment surrounding the facility, and requires employers to comply with a complex set of regulations for managing hazards associated with these processes,” Samantha writes. “Businesses should start by asking: ‘Do we have a covered process?’ If the answer is yes, an effective PSM program compliant with OSHA’s complex requirements must be developed.”
