|Hazardous Waste Labels|
OSHA just announced a request for information seeking public comment on potential revisions to its Process Safety Management standard and related standards, as well as other policy options to prevent major chemical incidents.
The RFI is in response to executive order 13650, which seeks to improve chemical facility safety and security, issued in the wake of the April 2013 West, Texas, tragedy that killed 15 in an ammonium nitrate explosion.
OSHA is asking for comments on these standards:
OSHA also welcomes comments on potential changes to PSM enforcement policies and asks for information and data on rulemaking and policy options, and the workplace hazards they address.
After the RFI is published in the Federal Register, the public will have 90 days to submit written comments. Once the RFI is published, the public can submit comments at www.regulations.gov. Comments can also be submitted by mail or FAX.
