OSHA’s Expanding Reach

A recent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission ruling could have wide implications for companies dealing with highly hazardous chemicals, likely expanding the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s reach.

Clients in oil and gas and manufacturing could be affected by what many deem as OSHA’s expansion of what is included in the process when it comes to handling highly hazardous chemicals. Any facility that has highly hazardous chemicals needs to pay attention to this matter.

What’s troubling for businesses such as refineries is that the decision put a refinery out of compliance without the refinery even knowing that OSHA would expand PSM to utilities unrelated to the chemicals used in other processes. This creates a catch-22 situation without providing notice in a manner to let companies know what is expected of them.
