20 Years of Driving Chemical Safety Change
In 2018, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) celebrates its 20th year of driving chemical safety change in the United States. From 1998 to 2018, the CSB addressed critical chemical safety gaps and deficiencies through its investigative reports and issued recommendations to companies, standards-developing organizations, academia, industry associations, emergency responders, labor groups and Federal and state government agencies. CSB recommendations continue to drive safety changes to help protect workers, the public, and the environment.
To highlight the CSB's investigative work over the past 20 years, the CSB will focus on a specific chemical safety theme each month in 2018 where the agency has made a significant impact by sharing lessons learned, issuing recommendations, advocating for safety change and collaborating with stakeholders. Every month, the CSB will add new resources to its website to help stakeholders benefit from the agency's 20 years of safety experience.
