CHEMICAL SAFETY AND HAZARD INVESTIGATION BOARD


Sunshine Act Meeting

TIME AND DATE: July 22, 2015, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. EDT.

PLACE: U.S. Chemical Safety Board, 2175 K St. NW., 4th Floor Conference 
Room, Washington, DC 20037.

STATUS: Open to the public.

MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED: The Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation 
Board (CSB) will convene a public meeting on July 22, 2015, starting at 
9:30 a.m. at the CSB's headquarters, located at 2175 K St. NW., 4th 
Floor Conference Room, Washington, DC 20037. The meeting will focus on 
the status of several current CSB investigations. The Board will 
discuss the final report, recommendations, and public comments received 
on the report of the Caribbean Petroleum incident. The Board may then 
vote on the Caribbean Petroleum report. The Board will then hear a 
staff presentation and receive public comments on a recommendation to 
the BP Global Executive Board of Directors to implement an incident 
reporting program. In 2012, a CSB staff evaluation of BP's actions 
taken in response to that recommendation was calendared for discussion 
in a public setting. The recommendation was issued as part of the 
investigation report of the BP America Refinery explosion in Texas 
City, Texas, in March 2005. The Board will also hear staff reports on 
recommendations related to California's Process Safety Management rules 
and laboratory safety guidelines from the American Chemical Society. 
The Board will hear public comments on these recommendations, current 
investigations, and other matters of concern to the agency in person or 
via telephone. Please read ``Additional Information'' for phone 
participation instructions.
