PSM/RMP Program Development and Other Related Service Offerings

Programs start with a consultation for scope development and applicability determination.

Both new and existing OSHA Process Safety Management programs must undergo an audit every three years. Pinnacle utilizes a comprehensive audit checklist along with engineering experience to help clients understand the compliance of their PSM programs and recommend sustainable solutions.

Every facility subject to OSHA’s PSM standards must undergo a PHA re-do or re-validation every five years. PHA’s are additionally required for new manufacturing processes and complex process changes that are subject to PSM standards. Pinnacle’s team of PSM engineers have facilitated PHA’s for a variety of clients and industries and have used a variety of OSHA-acceptable methodologies (HAZOP, LOPA, What-If, Checklist) for PHA facilitation. Our team works to organize your PHA on the front-end, smoothly facilitates the PHA sessions, and delivers a sustainable report which documents the PHA findings.

PSM Program development is right-sized for your facility and compliance needs. Pinnacle has extensive experience consulting on and developing sustainable systems and programs for all 14 elements of PSM. Hire us on the front end of planning and building a new processing facility to help you develop and implement an OSHA Process Safety Management program. Our team also works with plants and facilities to assess and redevelop existing PSM and RMP plans.

All process safety management program services include implementation support at your facility. We walk through the written documentation and provide guidance on training your staff and contractors.
