CSB Board Votes Unanimously on Status of 15 Safety Recommendations

U.S. Chemical Safety Board, June 30, 2015

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) has recently voted unanimously to update the status of fifteen safety recommendations resulting from nine accident investigations; including key safety improvements resulting from the 2010 Texas Tech University Laboratory accident, the fatal accident that occurred at the DuPont facility in Belle, WV in 2009, and the 2005 BP Texas City refinery fire and explosion.

The effective development and tracking of recommendations, designed to correct safety deficiencies, are key to the CSB's chemical accident prevention efforts. Recommendations developed by CSB staff are approved by majority vote of the Board, as are formal designations of responses to action taken. Additional information is available from www.CSB.gov.
