InstructionsOSHA issued the Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Standard (PSM) (29 CFR 1910.119) which contains requirements for the safe
management of chemicals for companies that exceed OSHA’s threshold quantities
for highly hazardous substances. This standard requires the establishment of a
management program that includes conducting process hazard analyses,
establishing detailed operating procedures, and includes other important
requirements to mitigate the possibility of a serious, chemical related
incident occurring at the facility.For this assignment, suppose you are a safety manager at a chemical
manufacturing facility that manufactures concentrated nitric acid. You have
heard that employees who load nitric acid into rail tank cars have been
checking the pre-inspection checklist from the rail shipping office instead of
actually inspecting the vehicles with the checklist in hand as required by
the operating procedure. This has not been the first time the shipping crew
has been lax about process safety related work rules. Based on this
scenario, please compose a research paper which includes the following
Identify the chemical properties, uses, and primary hazards associated
with common oxidizers including concentrated nitric acid.
Identify important occupational exposure limits (OELs) associated with at
least 3 common oxidizers.
Identify PSM requirements that would be useful for preventing or
minimizing the consequences of a significant oxidizer related incident.
Using the OSHA Standard and your own experience, justify and validate the
importance of the PSM standard to your facility (if it stores and
processes highly hazardous materials) or a facility that may impact your
community or a near-by community. Examples might include a water
treatment facility that utilizes liquefied chlorine gas, a coal fired
power plant that utilizes liquefied chlorine gas for water treatment,
a food processing plant with a large ammonia refrigeration system, a
fertilizer manufacturing or storage facility, a chemical
manufacturing facility, etc..Your research paper must be at least two pages in length. You are required to
cite the OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.119 in your response as well as at least two
other sources, one of which must come from the CSU Online Library. All sources
used, including the textbook, must be referenced. Paraphrased and/or quoted
materials must have accompanying citations in APA format.
