I do not have input for the two questions, but I would like to offer one observation.  The CSB does some very impressive investigations and highly informative reports for a remarkably reasonable cost (for a government agency) of about $12 million per year.  If other agencies were half as efficient and effective we might not have a budget problem.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] CSB Public Meetings - input?


Hi and Hello:


I’d like to hear input from the Division on the two questions (below) posed by the CSB for discussion at their upcoming public meeting(s).

Washington, DC, May 12, 2015 - Today the US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) announced that the board will host two public meetings in June 2015 in order to increase dialogue with CSB stakeholders.  

The first meeting will bring together stakeholders from industry, labor, trade, professional associations, and environmental organizations on Wednesday, June 10th -- location to be announced shortly. The meeting will begin at 9:00 am and will include discussion focusing on two main issues:

·         Emerging safety issues/what should the CSB be looking at in its strategic plan?

·         How can the CSB optimize its investigations and recommendations?

Tell me what you think!
