Participate in a hazard investigation of reactive chemical process safety conducted by the CSB.
The objectives of the special investigation will include:
Determine the frequency and severity of reactive chemical incidents.
Examine how industry, OSHA, and EPA are currently addressing reactive chemical hazards. Determine the differences, if any, between large/medium/small companies with regard to reactive chemical policies, practices, in-house reactivity research, testing, and process engineering.
Analyze the effectiveness of industry and OSHA use of the National Fire Protection Association Reactivity Rating system for process safety management purposes.
Develop recommendations for reducing the number and severity of reactive chemical
