Chemical Safety and Security Initiative

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The Central Massachusetts Business Environmental Network (CMBEN) organized a presentation on Current Chemical Safety and Security Initiatives. The meeting took place on September 11, 2007 at the Abbott Bioresearch Center in Worcester, Massachusetts and focused on the recent efforts of the MassDEP, State Fire Marshall’s Office, and U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Ed Kunce, MassDEP Deputy Commissioner spoke about the inspections that the Department and the State Fire Marshall’s Office are undertaking in the wake of response actions at industrial facilities in South Hadley and Danvers, Massachusetts. John Farrell of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) spoke about the new rules by USDHS to have companies register, if their storage of listed chemicals exceeds threshold quantities, through the use of the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). These initiatives are not just about “chemical plants” but target a wide-range of facilities under a broad definition of chemical usage.
