Industrial Refrigeration Technical College (IRTC), a high-tech, industrial ammonia refrigeration training facility, is pleased to offer ePSM, an Internet-based Process Safety Management/ Risk Management (PSM) program designed to help facilities comply with Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Act and Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines through powerful analytic tools and reporting capabilities. “This is a robust organizational tool that will allow facility managers comply with industry regulations through a suite of online reports and alerts,” said IRTC’s Lead Instructor, Jay Voissem, P.E. “Users can input all relevant information through customized online inspection reports, as well as upload supporting documents, to ensure that accurate records are available.” Reminders are sent when an action is necessary to meet compliance requirements, as well as upcoming schedules of inspections and audits. In addition, the IRTC Service Department audits ePSM records and alerts clients of any missing information necessary to complete inspections. All of this information is available for users in one consolidated, secure application that is easily edited and searched. Additional ePSM program features include executive summary; employee participation/committee notes; process safety information; process hazard analysis; contractor safety; safety review; mechanical integrity; hot work permit; change management; incident investigation; emergency planning and response; compliance audits; hazard assessment; and management programs.
