In August 2022 the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration stated that they intended to update their Process Safety Management standard (29 CFR 1910.119). At a Stakeholder Meeting held in October of that year they listed some of the areas that they would like to update. There were 24 proposed updates in total. We have a written a series of posts describing each of these updates and providing some commentary on them. An index for all of these posts is provided here.
