In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation “Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals” (29 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Part 1910.119) forms the basis for process hazards management in refineries. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “Risk Management Program” (RMP) rule (40 CFR Part 68) also applies to process hazards management for facilities in the United States. Similar process hazards and risk management regulations are in place in many countries. In other countries, API RP 750 Management of Process Hazards, a historical reference which is no longer being maintained by API, continues to provide the basis for refinery process hazards management.
Process hazards management applies to hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation units. These units handle liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and HF which, if released in quantity, may cause significant fire and toxic hazards. Each operating HF alkylation unit should have a process hazards management plan.
Process hazards management plans used for HF alkylation units must comply with federal, state, and local regulations. As noted above, these regulations may have requirements that supersede the recommendations of API RP 750.
