Both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) under regulation 29 CFR 1910.119 (Process Safety Management), as well as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under its Clean Air Act (CAA) regulation, Risk Management Program, Section 112 (r) (1) (Risk Management Program), require a Mechanical Integrity program to be included as a part of a facility’s chemical safety management program. In addition, under the OSHA General Duty Clause (GDC), owners/operators of facilities with regulated hazardous substances are responsible for managing chemicals safely.
