Is PSSR mandatory?

PSSR regulations, specifically, are discussed in OSHA 29 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) 1910.119(I):


  • The employer shall perform a pre-startup safety review for new facilities and for modified facilities when the modification is significant enough to require a change in the process safety information.
  • The pre-startup safety review shall confirm that prior to the introduction of hazardous chemicals to a process:
  • Construction and equipment are in accordance with design specifications;
  • Safety, operating, maintenance, and emergency procedures are in place and are adequate;
  • For new facilities, a process hazard analysis has been performed and recommendations have been resolved or implemented before startup; and modified facilities meet the requirements contained in management of change, paragraph (l).
  • Training of each employee involved in operating a process has been completed.
