To simplify your process, the authors provide detailed examples of materials used in compliance audits, extensive examples of compliant programs, and relevant sample documents. PSM/RMP Auditing Handbook

The PSM checklists examine such issues as employee participation, process-safety information, process-hazards analysis, operating procedures, training, contractors, pre-startup safety reviews, hot work permits, incident investigation, and trade secrets. The RMP checklists include worst-case analysis, five-year accident history, management responsibility, document management, safety information, hazard review, operating procedures, training, maintenance, and incident investigations.
