Pre-Start Up Safety Review

A PSSR is a safety review conducted prior to commissioning of a plant to ensure that the plant meets the requirements of safety as specified in the operating or design document. A PSSR must also be conducted if there is a modification in the original design or there is any introduction of new chemicals in the process or the plant is re-starting after being under shutdown for more than one week. A PSSR not only cover equipment and processes but also training.

How is a PSSR carried out?

As per OSHA 1910.119 a Pre-Start up Safety Review must be carried out “for new facilities and for modified facilities when the modification is significant enough to require a change in the process safety information”.

  1. 1The consultancy starts with a sample review of the Process Safety information to check if it is current and whether all employees have access to the information. Thereafter a review of the Process Hazard analysis for completeness and adequacy is checked.

  3. 3If new construction has been installed a review is conducted to confirm that the Construction and equipment are in accordance with the design specifications.
