Building customized programs to drive safety and business value

Process safety management (PSM) is a systematic analytical tool for preventing the release of highly hazardous chemicals and focuses on preventing incidents, increasing employee safety, and defining parameters for the safe operation of your process. HCG Associates focuses on assisting businesses with managing these inherent hazards by implementing industry best practices.

Process safety management (PSM) is a regulation by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It was designed to help companies prevent highly hazardous chemicals (HHCs) from being mishandled or released.

HCG Associates specializes in developing and managing customized client programs, ensuring that the regulatory requirements under OSHA’s Process Safety Management Program, General Duty Clause, and the EPA’s Risk Management Program are fully satisfied.
