U.S. Chemical Safety Board to hold public meeting on recommendations

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board is holding a public meeting on July 25 to discuss exclusively whether its recommendations have been successfully implemented, such as with several important recommendations made to OSHA. This is also the first time that the Board will consider selecting issues as “Most Wanted Safety Improvements,” such as an industry standard to prevent combustible dust explosions and fires. In a political atmosphere where movement on new safety standards is slow (to say the least), prioritizing which rules to push for may be a more strategic move.

The Federal Register announcement has the broad outline of the agenda for the meeting.  

Though the meeting will be held in person in Washington, D.C., people outside the District likely will be able to join, as well. Information is to come about how to hear a broadcast of the meeting and submit comments online. We will update as we get more information.
