Hello Todd,

Currently, I'm also assisting one of the PIs to write SOP for the pressure vessel (>15 PSI). Pressure vessels are regulated by state law if the pressure is greater than 15 psi (for most states). Your state fire marshal (division of boilers and pressure vessel) is the best resource in this case.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Question for posting on DCHAS List


Good Afternoon,


My name is Todd Numan and I am an EHS Safety Officer at MIT.  I am in the process of updating some of our program guidance documents on pressure vessel use and was hoping that I could have a question posted on the DCHAS list for comments.  We have current list members on my team so I will have access to any comments or conversations.


The following question is what I was hoping to have posted;


-      We are currently in the process of updating our pressure vessel program guidance documents and would like to benchmark against best practices from other universities.  For those of you that have a pressure vessel program, what techniques do you use to track and monitor researcher built systems, and what is your criteria for categorizing low/medium/high hazard potentials?

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
