The Chemical Safety Board: An Agency at a Crossroads

Published in Bloomberg BNA Insights
Article | June 22, 2016

The article examines recent turmoil surrounding the US Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB), a small, independent federal agency tasked with conducting root-cause investigations of chemical accidents at fixed industrial facilities. The agency underwent significant change in 2015, with the resignation of the board’s former chairman shortly before the end of his five-year term, the placing of two staffers on administrative leave, and the confirmation of four new board members, including a new chairwoman. The article also offers recommendations for how the CSB can restore confidence in its mission and become more effective as it moves forward under new leadership.
