Have you ever wondered what the protocol is for investigating chemical leaks (Elk River in Charleston, WV), fires, & explosions (West, TX)? The event is investigated by the Chemical Safety Board. Once the investigation is complete, the board passes their recommendation on to the appropriate regulatory agency such as the EPA or OSHA. The board’s open & closed investigations with recommendations are available for public viewing on their website. We’re pretty sure all chemistry lab teachers know about the board, but just in case, please view & bookmark the After the Rainbow video safety message.
