Pressure relief design: the right plan, the right protection

Protect your employees, your assets, your environment and comply with government regulations. 

Pressure vessels can fail catastrphically, causing employee fatalities and property damage. The Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require employers to provider a safe workplace.

Javan Engineering’s program for conducting pressure relief device design basis evaluations (PRDs) offers employers access to a team of chemical, industrial, and pharmaceutical processes, equipment and emergency pressure relief protecting devices. 

Stay Ahead of Regulations and Confidently Meet Compliance

With Javan Engineering’s PSM Consulting Solutions, you’ll gain access to professionals who offer comprehensive compliance and engineering solutions designed to help develop and maintain your PSM and other compliance programs. You’ll stay ahead of regulations, reallocate limited resources and focus on core business while ensuring the safety of your employees.

Safety & Compliance History

Many manufacturers at the turn of the 20th century enacted regulations for the manufacture of boilers and pressure vessels following catastrophic failures resulting in large losses of life and property. ASME was called upon to unify these regulations in what would later become the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). Other local and national professional engineering groups, which as the American Petroleum Institute and the National Fire and Protection Agency, have contributed additional guidelines to ensure pressurized vessel safety, forming a complex system of compliance rules.

Business Challenge

You’re responsible for maintaining your company’s process safety management (PSM) program and ensuring it’s compliant with federal and state regulations. But the landscape — internal procedures and external requirements — is constantly changing and it’s becoming nearly impossible to know exactly where you stand.

The number of processes and compliance schedules under your management is increasing and, despite the growing complexity of your program, you have limited resources to fully understand the requirements, evaluate your risk and take corrective action. The safety of your employees is paramount — not to mention the reputation of the company — but you realize it’s only a matter of time before your luck runs out. An existing metal alloy and fabrication plant was acquired by a larger company. A complete site review was needed to ensure compliance with corporate and OSHA regulations.
