On February 24, 1992, OSHA implemented the Final Rule for Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals. Officially adopted in 1996, OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.119 established uniform policies, procedures, standard clarifications, and compliance guidance for enforcement of the standard for process safety management (PSM) of highly hazardous chemicals.
OSHA required all PSM covered processes to have their initial Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) done by May 1997. Since PHAs are to be revalidated every five years, all PHA’s completed in 1997 (which is most) are due to be revalidated in 2022.
