Helping our customers to operate under the safest conditions is a core value of our company. We work hard to assess the unique risks of an industrial environment and create a safety management system that will help reduce that risk and allow you achieve the highest level of success.
Following the codes, standards, and best practices set forth by the appropriate agencies is a key part of this process. Thats why its important that these entities are too being monitored. Should an accident occur someone needs to investigate the cause and recommend a corrective course of action.
The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) is an independent federal agency whose board members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. They investigate industrial chemical hazards and accidents and make recommendations that are issued to government agencies, companies, trade associations, labor unions, and other groups. While some recommendations may be adopted immediately, others require extensive effort and advocacy to achieve implementation. In many cases, the lessons from CSB investigations are applicable to many organizations beyond the company investigated. Many CSB recommendations have been implemented in industry, leading to safer plants, workers, and communities.
