US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) Public Hearing - Richmond Chevron Refinery Explosion -
Friday, April 19, 6:00 p.m. at the Richmond Auditorium.
The CSB is an independent federal agency whose members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The CSB is expected to identify critical issues exposing Chevron's culture of profits v. safety that created the Chevron Richmond Toxic Explosion and Fire on August 6, 2012.
Most of the conditions that led to the fire still exist and continue to put workers and community members at risk of death and injury.

The CSB staff is also expected to make recommendations for the entire United States petrochemical industry on ensuring oil refinery safety.
We must be present to put pressure on the Board members to adopt the recommendations of the staff

It is critical for we as a community:
learn from their investigation the behavior that lead to the August 6, Toxic Explosion and Fire,
advocate for implementing all of the CSB's recommendations for refinery safety,
establish a management culture and regulatory regime of prevention not reaction,
Ensure the CSB votes to accept its staff recommendations.
