    OSHA recently issued a directive (.pdf file) extending through September its National Emphasis Program on process safety management.

    According to the directive, OSHA will perform programmed inspections of facilities housing highly hazardous chemicals in Regions I, VII and X, as well as unprogrammed inspections in other regions. OSHA encouraged State Plan states to adopt the NEP, which does not include refineries.
