GCAP “CoolCast” Episode 27: Ammonia NEP Citations

by on Sep.01, 2011, under Podcast


Ammonia NEP Citations

Jeremy Williams and Brian Chapin of Garden City Ammonia Program discuss part two of the chemical and refinery NEP.  This episode focuses on actual documented citations received by companies throughout the US based on the National Emphasis Program.   We highly recommend  listening to the first episode of explaining the NEP before this one.  It was titled “OSHA’s National Emphasis Program: NEP”.  We have added also some EPA citations regarding failure to report releases of ammonia.

Emphasis on Implementation over Documentation:  “Based on past OSHA inspection history at refineries and large chemical plants, OSHA has typically found that these employers have extensive written documentation related to process safety management, but the implementation of the written documentation has been inadequate.   Therefore, CSHO’s should focus on the implementation of the various PSM elements and ensure that employers do what they have committed to do in their PSM documentation.” Osha.gov
