In the United States, the performance of a PSSR is mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for new facilities and for modified facilities when the modification is significant enough to require a change in the process safety information.
A PSSR is a safety review conducted prior to startup (commissioning) of a new or modified processing/manufacturing plant or facility to ensure that installations meet the original design or operating intent, to catch and re-assess any potential hazard due to changes during the detailed engineering and construction phase of a project.
The completion of a thorough PSSR is essential to ensuring that newly constructed or modified facilities will safely perform as designed and the more complex the project, the greater the need to perform a PSSR prior to introducing hydrocarbons or highly hazardous chemicals. Many large projects tend to fall behind schedule so that as the time for commissioning approaches there is frequently intense pressure to cut corners to make up time with the schedule. IFO Group can provide experienced facilitators that understand the critical need for effective PSSR and can bring an independent and pragmatic voice to the table to aid in timely and effective reviews.
