How Effectively are your Process Safety and Risk Management Programs being Implemented?
Performing compliance audits measures the effectiveness of your Process Safety Management (PSM) and Risk Management Planning (RMP) programs to ensure that they are compliant with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119 and 40 CFR Part 68. Under 29 CFR 1910.119, OSHA requires companies to conduct compliance audits of their PSM programs at least every 3 years. Under 40 CFR Part 68, the EPA requires companies to revise and resubmit RMP(s) every 5 years. Third party compliance audits are an unbiased approach to identify areas of improvement within PSM or RMP programs; therefore, because a third party provides greater objectivity and expertise, it is generally considered best practice.
Assero Resources offers a wide range of on-site auditing services that examine all elements of PSM and RMP programs ranging from structure to implementation. With extensive hands-on experience and knowledge, our compliance audit practices rely on the most up-to-date Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP). We conduct compliance audits utilizing detailed protocols designed for specific industries allowing our auditors to be precise and efficient; ultimately lowering costs to our clients.
First, we perform a comprehensive review of your management programs, policies and procedures. Assero then determines how your facility is implementing each facet to maintain compliance. Next, we compile the findings and recommendations into an easy-to-understand report so you can make the necessary changes to maintain compliance. In addition to regulatory compliance recommendations, we also provide our clients with industry best practices suggestions.
