Frequently Asked Questions

Who must take this training?

Every employee currently involved in operating a process or a newly assigned process must be trained in an overview of the process and its operating procedures. A facility’s PSM program, therefore, must apply to contractors performing maintenance or repair, turnaround, major renovation, or specialty work on or adjacent to a covered process.

How often is retraining or recertification required?

Every employee currently involved in operating a process or a newly assigned process must be trained in an overview of the process and its operating procedures. The employer must provide refresher training at least every three years, or more often if necessary, to each employee involved in operating a process.

What are the governing regulations?

On July 17, 1990, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a plan for the management of hazards associated with processes using acutely hazardous materials, which resulted in the establishment of the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.119 – Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals. OSHA has been working in tandem with approved states to enforce the requirements of the process safety standard contained in 29 CFR 1910.119 ever since. This course provides an overview of the approved state plan of California for the process safety management of acutely hazardous materials, as provided in the California Code of Regulations CCR Title 8 Section 5189.
