Contractor Safety

In this episode, I was back with Wesley Carter, CCPSC on the Amplify Your Process Safety Podcast for another collaboration where we talk about both occupational safety and process safety, and this time we cover contractor management. We talk about what OSHA says about contractor management for the general industry, and what's required for PSM-covered facilities, how contractor management relates to both occupational and process safety, and why you should care.

Find OSHA's Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs, Communication and Coordination for Host Employers, Contractors, and Staffing Agencies, here.

* CORRECTION: While we regularly recommend videos from the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) and think they make excellent training material, in this episode we mistakenly said that there was a CSB animation video for the Phillips disaster of 1989 in Pasadena, TX. No such video exists, but you may learn more about the incident on its Wikipedia page, on Youtube, or from ABC13 Houston.
