OSHA has released three guidance documents to help employers comply with the agency's Process Safety Management standard.

Process Safety Management is critically important to facilities that store highly hazardous chemicals.

Implementing the required safety programs helps prevent fires, explosions, large chemical spills, toxic gas releases, runaway chemical reactions, and other major incidents.

The new documents focus on PSM compliance for Small Businesses, Storage Facilities, and Explosives and Pyrotechnics Manufacturing.

Safety Seminars Online

OSHA has also made recordings of two recent training seminars available online.

One is a symposium on ladder safety hosted by the OSHA Education Center at the University of Texas, Arlington.

The other is a webinar on "Communicating with Workers about Hazardous Materials" hosted by the American Staffing Association as part of its alliance with OSHA.
