CDI-T Auditing

The Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) provides the chemical industry with an independent organization for auditing, qualification, and accreditation of inspectors and a web site database on which inspection reports can be listed, managed, and assessed. The CDI-T audit is composed of more than 1800 questions and consists of a management section and a technical section. On average, an audit requires three to four days for completion. The CDI-T/RCMS audit conducted by CDI-T inspectors is designed to:

• Improve the Safety & Quality Performance of Bulk Liquid Storage for the Chemical Industry
• Provide Chemical Companies with a Cost Effective System for Risk Assessment, Thus Assisting in the Commitment to Responsible Care
• Provide a Single Set of Accurate, Reliable & Consistent Inspection Data Which Chemical Companies Can Use with Confidence

Process Safety Management (PSM)

OSHA's Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals (HHC) standard requires certain companies to design appropriate programs to prevent or minimize the consequences of catastrophic releases of HHC's. LAAP can conduct a gap analysis of your PSM program and facility to determine shortcomings and inconsistencies that could result in major fines from OSHA and worse, catastrophic events. Once the gap analysis is completed, we can assist by tailoring your PSM program to suit your unique needs.
