I noticed the US Chemical Safety Board has redesigned their website. Their
videos are very well done.
CSB Launches Redesigned Agency Website and Releases New Video 

May 26, 2009
Washington, DC, May 26, 2009 - The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) today
unveiled a redesigned website,  that includes imbedded flash
videos, a photo gallery, and a new accident news feed.
The redesigned home page features a newly released 14-minute video, "About
the CSB," describing the agency's investigations, recommendations, and
outreach programs. The new video includes interviews with CSB Chairman John
Bresland, CSB managers and staff, and outside stakeholders together with
footage of chemical accidents, investigative activities, and hearings.
The new website provides easier access to investigation information,
including the ability to download high-resolution photos from CSB
investigations, and an improved search capability. The CSB's widely viewed
safety videos and safety messages are embedded throughout the site.
Chairman Bresland said, "The CSB strives to be a leader in the online
communication of safety information and recommendations. The web site
redesign reflects our ongoing commitment to effective outreach to
businesses, workers, and communities who share our goal of preventing
chemical accidents and saving lives."
The new homepage includes an improved news feed of recent
chemical accidents throughout the country as well as direct access to the
CSB's most frequently viewed safety videos.
"The CSB's new website has been an extensive undertaking," said Public
Affairs Specialist Hillary Cohen, who led the year-long redesign project.
"Our objective is make access to vital safety information as easy as
possible for thousands of stakeholders and web visitors."
Comments or suggestions about the new site are welcome and should be
directed to webmaster**At_Symbol_Here**
The CSB is an independent federal agency charged with investigating
industrial chemical accidents. The agency's board members are appointed by
the president and confirmed by the Senate. CSB investigations look into all
aspects of chemical accidents, including physical causes such as equipment
failure as well as inadequacies in regulations, industry standards, and
safety management systems.
The Board does not issue citations or fines but does make safety
recommendations to plants, industry organizations, labor groups, and
regulatory agencies such as OSHA and EPA. Visit our website,
