PSM Video Series

This UCLA LOSH video highlights the coalition that joined forces after the Chevron Richmond refinery fire to protect workers and communities. The efforts of labor, community, environmental justice and health activists ultimately led to a stronger Cal/OSHA Process Safety Management standard for refineries. (12 minutes)

This UCLA LOSH video defines process safety, explains some of the new elements in the standard, and gives examples of how it can make refineries safer through a greater emphasis on proactive maintenance and worker involvement. (6 minutes)

This UCLA LOSH video discusses the heart of California’s revised PSM Standard for refineries: it significantly increases the role of workers in a refinery’s PSM program and gives the union the right to pick the employees who will serve on various hazard investigation teams. It also explains the rights of workers to refuse to do an unsafe job and of qualified operators to shut down unsafe processes. (7 minutes)

This UCLA LOSH video explains two of the elements in the revised California PSM Standard for refineries. Management of Change applies to the planning process and review needed before making major physical changes in a unit or process. Management of Organizational Change requires a review of potential impacts before proposing major changes in staffing, work schedules, or increased job duties. The importance of mechanical integrity is also covered. (6 minutes)
