HOUSTON (ICIS)--The US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) will meet on 25 July to consider whether the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has adequately implemented several regulatory recommendations made by the CSB, the board announced on Monday.
The CSB also will consider selecting the agency’s first “Most Wanted Chemical Safety Improvement” issue, on which the CSB would place special emphasis in advocating for upgrades.
According to the CSB, it is considering giving the designation of “Open-Unacceptable Response” to OSHA’s actions regarding the following CSB recommendations issued earlier:
“Open-Unacceptable Response” means that the CSB disagrees with OSHA’s actions and is asking for the organisation to reconsider.
The CSB also will consider designating a combustible dust standard as the agency’s “Most Wanted Safety Improvement”. Such a designation would be a first for the board.
