The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) is highlighting the important role of individual state governments in driving critical chemical safety change. A number of state governments have made significant safety improvements following a chemical disaster within their state. They make them to protect their residents and the environment with the common goal of preventing future similar incidents.

The CSB has issued 80 safety recommendations to 22 different state governments stemming from 27 CSB investigations. Currently, only six of these investigations still have open recommendations issued to state governments. These CSB recommendations range from identifying risks and increasing safety inspections to developing and adopting significant, state-level chemical safety legislation. Several states have taken significant steps to implement positive safety changes in light of chemical disasters.
