API Process Safety Site Assessment Program (PSSAP)

American Petroleum Institute (API), August 21, 2023

As part of the industry’s ongoing commitment to continuous process safety improvements, API, in collaboration with industry partners, has developed a Process Safety Site Assessment Program (PSSAP). This program will primarily involve the assessment of a site’s process safety systems by independent, credible, third-party teams of industry-qualified process safety expert assessors.

Through the use of industry-developed protocols, the process safety site assessments will evaluate both the quality of the written programs and the effectiveness of field implementation. The following is the list of the process safety areas that will be evaluated:

  • Process Safety Leadership
  • Operating Practices
  • Mechanical Integrity (focused on fixed equipment)
  • Safe Work Practices
  • Management of Change (MOC)
  • Process Hazards Analysis (PHA)
  • Facility Siting
  • Product Storage & Transfer
  • Incident Learning
  • Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) Alkylation/API RP-751
  • NEW: Safeguards (available if completing PHA protocol)
