Chemical Facility Safety: RMP Updates And New Compliance Action Items

Webinar: ID# 1023244
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
In response to high profile industrial incidents like the 2013 explosion at the West Fertilizer Facility in Texas, the EPA is looking to impose significant new requirements on a wide range of facilities that use or maintain on-site certain chemicals.

By December 2016, the EPA intends to release its final Risk Management Plan (RMP) Rule revisions. The new requirements are expected to reduce the likelihood of accidental releases at chemical facilities and improve emergency responses when releases do occur.

Join us for an in-depth webinar when experienced environmental, health and safety lawyer Judah Prero will discuss the changes that lie ahead. He’ll provide you with the knowledge to help you and your organization plan for a significant new compliance requirement.

Learning Objectives:
  • What the EPA’s RMP program is intended to address
  • What changes are being proposed by the EPA
  • How those changes will affect industry as a whole
  • What industry organizations should do before the rule is finalized
  • How to best leverage existing compliance and safety initiatives for RMP purposes
