MA Pollution Prevention & Environmental Security

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description While chemical security has always been of prime importance to public health and welfare, it has become even more important now that emergency preparedness must also contemplate potential terrorist activities. Relying on existing and known methods for improving chemical efficiencies, managing chemicals safely, preventing chemical emergencies, and reducing the risk of accidental releases of chemicals is now central to the national effort to improve domestic safety. The EPA has developed outreach materials on chemical management. Through a grant from the EPA Region 1-New England, the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance (MA OTA) is incorporating these outreach materials into its workshops and routine technical assistance activities.

To strengthen industry's ability to reduce the risks of storing dangerous chemicals at their facilities, OTA is soliciting and assessing feedback from workshop participants on the effectiveness of these outreach activities and materials. Further, at all upcoming events that OTA sponsors or in which it participates, several industry sectors will be provided with information that clearly links pollution prevention with site security, as well as the business advantages of reducing risks. It is anticipated that the results of this project will enable both Massachusetts and EPA Region 1-New England to refine programs in this critical area and deliver a model approach to reducing chemical risk associated with various industry sectors for the nation.
