The CSB strategic plan interests look very narrow and but the recommendations should be kept within the CSB's Legislative Authority.
Frankly I've found their reports thorough and well done. One piece of the CSB process is implement a five or seven year review of the effectiveness of the report on the particular industry. Also studies should be undertaken between and within industries for which CSB reports have been written to learn if there is a higher level root cause of accidents.
My suggestions are not likely to have an immediate impact but the results could help to optimized CSB investigations and recommendations.
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!
