Process Safety Information
iSi can help you determine the hazards involved with the process with industrial hygiene evaluations, process chemistry and arranging for equipment engineering safety determinations.
Process Hazard Analysis
iSi can work with your onsite teams to conduct and document a process hazard analysis.
iSi’s safety professionals can work with your plants to develop written operating procedures for your normal and turnaround operations, shutdowns, safety systems and safe work practices.
iSi can help you develop PSM-specific presentations, online modules or videos as well as provide trainers to conduct the training.

iSi can coordinate with engineers on mechanical integrity written procedures and deficiency corrections.

iSi can be your third-party incident investigation team, or help you develop an incident investigation process.
Emergency Planning and Audits
An Emergency Action Plan, and likely a HAZWOPER Emergency Response Plan will need to be developed for your facility. iSi’s safety team, can help you prepare both.
iSi can conduct your required 3-year compliance evaluation to verify PSM practices are adequate and being followed.
iSi can help you determine the best way to communicate what you’re required to communicate to your employees and investigators.
PSM Audits and Required Evaluations
If you are a PSM facility, you’re required to evaluate your compliance every 3 years. The audit should make sure all PSM requirements are being followed, identify elements that need special attention, review pertinent documentation, including an onsite inspection of the physical facilities, include interviews of plant personnel to determine awareness/knowledge of PSM requirements, safety procedures, and emergency procedures, and then include a mechanism to record deficiencies.
iSi is ready to help you with the following assistance:
Audit Team and Team Members
iSi’s safety team can conduct the entire audit, providing an independent evaluation of your PSM compliance, or we can provide auditors to supplement your own in-house team to give an additional outside perspective.
Pre and Post-Audit Assistance
If your corporate offices conduct the audit or bring in another auditor, we can help you get prepared before that audit by taking a look at any gaps or deficienicies or help you fix any findings post-audit.
