Course 200-143

Facility Siting

Course Length:
2 Days
1.6 CEUs / 16 PDHs
$1,750 USD
Course Description:

Facilities  covered by the OSHA Process Safety Management Standard, 29 CFR 1910.119 must evaluate facility siting as part of Process Hazard Analysis (PHA). To meet this requirement, the recommended  practices from the American Petroleum Institute (API 752 – Permanent Buildings; API 753 – Portable Buildings) and guidelines from the Center for Chemical Process Safety

(CCPS) are typically referenced when evaluating the potential impacts and risk to onsite occupied buildings. While these references provide an overview for conducting a siting analysis, they are not prescriptive, as such a range of techniques ranging from simple checklists, screening analysis, consequence modeling to full Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) are used to meet the intent of the PSM requirement.

  • Overview of the OSHA PSM facility siting requirements
  • Overview of API 752, API 753 and CCPS facility siting guidelines
  • Facility siting techniques
  • Benefits and weaknesses of qualitative and quantitative facility siting assessments
  • Identification and selection of occupied buildings
