The Process Safety Management Rule
SUBPART NUMBER: H (Hazardous Materials)
Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Purpose. This section contains requirements for preventing or minimizing the consequences of
catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals. These releases may
result in toxic, fire or explosion hazards.
(a) Application.
(1) This section applies to the following:
(i) A process which involves a chemical at or above the specified threshold
quantities listed in Appendix A to this section;
(ii) A process which involves a flammable liquid or gas (as defined in
1910.1200(c) of this part) on site in one location, in a quantity of 10,000 pounds
(4535.9 kg) or more except for:
(A) Hydrocarbon fuels used solely for workplace consumption as a fuel
(e.g., propane used for comfort heating, gasoline for vehicle
refueling), if such fuels are not a part of a process containing another
highly hazardous chemical covered by this standard;
(B) Flammable liquids stored in atmospheric tanks or transferred which
are kept below their normal boiling point without benefit of chilling
or refrigeration.
(2) This section does not apply to:
(i) Retail facilities;
(ii) Oil or gas well drilling or servicing operations; or,
(iii) Normally unoccupied remote facilities.
(b) Definitions.
Atmospheric tank means a storage tank which has been designed to operate at pressures from
atmospheric through 0.5 p.s.i.g. (pounds per square inch gauge, 3.45 Kpa).
Boiling point means the boiling point of a liquid at a pressure of 14.7 pounds per square inch
absolute (p.s.i.a.) (760 mm.). For the purposes of this section, where an accurate boiling point is
unavailable for the material in question, or for mixtures which do not have a constant boiling
point, the 10 percent point of a distillation performed in accordance with the Standard Method of
Test for Distillation of Petroleum Products, ASTM D-86-62, may be used as the boiling point of
the liquid.
