OSHA has not concluded that all types of facilities commonly operated by pipeline companies are exempt from the process safety management (PSM) standard. In 2005, OSHA concluded that gas processing plants are appropriately covered by the standard. In addition, PHMSA at the time agreed that fire and explosion hazards at gas processing plants are generally not regulated by PHMSA and are therefore subject to OSHA PSM coverage.
