Tia,Here is my recommendation:Sign up and take the CCPS Boot Camp as training.
Set up a discussion with your boss and understand the assignment and how it relates to your job duties now and potentially in the future. Ask lots of questions
Sign up for and review all the CCPS Monthly Process Safety Beacons.
Watch the US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) videos on Process Safety incidents. Read the final reports on any event somewhat related to your industry.
Find a PSM expert in your company and pick their brain at some regular frequency. Find out the hazards.
Read the OSHA law in Code of Federal Register (CFR-) 1910.119. Do all the requirements apply to your situation?
Check for any inspections by OSHA ( regulatory or VPP) or other agencies on your site and company. Ask the boss what needs improvement.
Later connect with PS experts in your industry. Find out how to prevent process safety incidents and make it happen.Once you get going with that, you will have started the process safety part of your career. Keep learning and implementing until you retire.PSM is all about saving lives! The law brings requirements that must be met but process safety is a moral obligation on us in the chemical engineering profession to prevent deaths and injuries.
