Title: ●Process Safety Management And Flammable Liquids 
Abstract: OSHA is considering revising its Process Safety Management (PSM) standard, 29 CFR 1910.119, to address gaps in safety coverage; or updating its Flammable Liquids standard, 29 CFR 1910.106, and Spray Finishing standard, 29 CFR 1910.107, based on the latest consensus standards. The following options are being considered: clarifying the PSM exemption for atmospheric storage tanks; expanding coverage and requirements for reactivity hazards; expanding the scope of paragraph (j) to cover the mechanical integrity of any safety-critical equipment; expanding the scope of paragraph (l) to require greater organizational management of change from employers; and updating ยงยง1910.106 and 1910.107 based on the latest consensus standards.
