Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction, and mechanical services worldwide, has published a new e-book about the critical elements of a process safety management (PSM) training program for facilities operating an ammonia refrigeration system.
The e-book, titled “7 Keys to a Compliant PSM Training Program for Ammonia Refrigeration,” outlines important questions a facility’s program should address and questions that trained plant personnel should be able to answer.
Topics covered include:
● Safety hazards and health considerations
● Emergency shutdown procedures
● Addressing deviations from system operating limits
● Risks and costs of noncompliance with regulatory standards
“Unfortunately, ammonia leaks make the headlines too often,” says Ken Philo, director of PSM compliance at Stellar. “Industrial ammonia refrigeration is a matter of public safety, and facility owners are responsible for ensuring compliance training on their systems. However, some priorities may have taken a backseat these past two years, possibly leaving some plants unsure if their training even meets OSHA’s latest standards—and that can be costly on a number of levels.”
Stellar has unparalleled background and expertise in ammonia refrigeration, serving as a single-source solution for compliance with leading regulatory agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The company’s NH360 PSM software removes the ambiguity and uncertainty about compliance with real-time access to industry-leading PSM resources.
