OSHA Refinery Process Safety
Process Safety Management Compliance in the Gulf Coast
Oil refineries in Texas, on the Gulf Coast and nationwide must comply with all applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, including comprehensive, site-specific safety management systems to reduce the risk of fatal and catastrophic injuries. OSHA expects employers to know their workplaces, including whether employees are exposed to hazards, employees are qualified and proper safety features are in place.

Employers must assess their workplaces to determine if hazards are present and take appropriate actions to protect employees.
