Your Organization Is Talking, Is Anybody Listening?

Join this 60-minute sponsored webinar to focus on communicating the hazard—one of the Five PSM Mindsets™ and a theme which is threaded throughout all 14 of OSHA’s PSM elements. If your work groups are simply imparting information and not exchanging ideas, chances are you’re missing the mark on communication. Examine how to improve the way you and your team share critical information while improving your safety culture. Critique your current level and methods of communication and connection to other teams. Plus, find out how to generate meaningful pathways for sharing critical PSM information. Don’t miss this opportunity to move beyond simply following Key Performance Indicators, managing changes and reviewing findings from audits, PHA’s and incidents and start creating meaningful conversations and solutions.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • How the theme of “communication” is threaded throughout OSHA’s 14 PSM Elements
  • Contrast and compare various methods of sharing PSM information and ideas
  • How to differentiate between the needs of multiple audiences
  • Assessing your current level of communication

Jurisdictional Boundaries in Midstream

Where is the Line?

Account Director Lauren Mercer presented her whitepaper “Jurisdictional Boundaries in Midstream: Where is the Line?” at the 2018 AIChE Spring Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Mercer has a skill for taking complex and nuanced topics and making them manageable and consumable for the audience. The AIChE committee chose to record her presentation, and it will be made available in the archived AIChE meeting database, available to AIChE members and conference attendees.

Paper Abstract

Where is the Line?

This paper discusses the gray area between OSHA and DOT jurisdiction, including coverage of terminal operations, railcars/trucks, and underground storage applicability. The nuances of PSM applicability, including interconnectivity and colocation, hydrocarbon used as a fuel, atmospheric tanks, and safety systems will be presented.

Furthermore, this paper will provide a history of jurisdictional boundary and PSM applicability cases/interpretations and will present examples of determining PSM jurisdiction and applicability. The intent is to pull all aspects of each regulations together in a single location to be used as a reference when evaluating the jurisdictional boundaries at a midstream facility.
