New Process Safety Management Standard (CSA Z767-17) now available

The Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) is pleased to announce that the CSA Z767-17 standard on Process Safety Management (PSM) was published on February 20, 2017 by the CSA Group.

The purpose of this Standard is to identify the performance requirements for organizations that plan to implement, or have implemented, a PSM system. PSM is the application of management principles and systems for the identification, understanding, avoidance, and control of process hazards to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from process-related incidents. The Standard was prepared by the Technical Committee on Standards for PSM, which has representation from different Canadian industrial sectors, regulators, academics and government. Its development was made possible, in part, by the financial support of CIAC.

The French translation is in progress, and it is expected that this standard will become a National Standard of Canada by Q4 2017.

CIAC congratulates all those involved in making this happen for their great work.
