In a move to create a safer and more secure chemical industry, a “Chemical Facility Security and Safety Working Group Charter” was signed by federal agencies.
The Department of Labor, Department of Homeland Security, and the Environmental Protection Agency created and signed the Charter.
The working group, which includes other federal agency representatives, was established by an Executive Order in response to several chemical facility catastrophes.
The charter reaffirms the group’s commitment to work with stakeholders to address safety and security at chemical facilities, and reduce risks associated with hazardous chemicals to workers and communities.
