Hazardous Materials Storage

OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) standard deals with “any activity involving a highly hazardous chemical including any use, storage, manufacturing, handling, or the on-site movement of such chemicals, or combination of these activities.” Consequently, storage of hazardous materials come under PSM standard.

For facilities that store very dangerous chemicals, PSM is crucial. By implementing the necessary safety protocols, you may help avoid serious occurrences like fires, explosions, big chemical spills, poisonous gas releases, uncontrolled chemical reactions, and more.
