RSO (Refinery Safety Overview)

RSO has developed standards for a training program designed to educate workers on the health and safety hazards associated with working in the petrochemical industry. The program offers an overview of safe work practices and health regulations, providing guidelines for maintaining a safe working environment for employees, contract employers, and plant owners. It also furnishes the basic training necessary to prevent work-related injuries and illness.

OSCA administers the RSO program, including data and records management, with convenient access to registration, course and test schedules, and status via the Internet.

RSO is not a substitute for an employer's safety programs or job specific training. Employers are responsible for establishing health and safety programs relevant to each job, in accordance with industry standards, and in compliance with current state and federal regulations.
