The long list of proposed changes to RMP have wide-ranging implications for chemical manufacturers and users. The new changes include requirements for the consideration of safer technologies and alternatives by including the assessment of Inherently Safer Technologies and Designs in the Process Hazard Assessment; Requiring third party audits and root cause analysis to identify process safety improvements for accident prevention; Enhancing emergency planning and preparedness requirements to help ensure coordination between facilities and local communities; Strengthening emergency response planning to help ensure emergency response capabilities are available to mitigate the effect of a chemical accident; Improving the ability of LEPCs (Local Emergency Planning Committees) and local emergency response officials to better prepare for emergencies both individually and with one another; and Improving access to information to help the public understand the risks at RMP facilities. We have an extensive history of working with all phases of RMP. We can help you in your determination of covered RMP chemicals, program development, implementation, evaluation, worst case determination, incident review, plan review and third party audits and root cause analysis.
