Start Supplemental Information
On August 1, 2013, President Obama issued EO 13650 to improve chemical facility safety and security. The Working Group charged with implementing the EO is co-chaired by DHS, DOL, and EPA, and includes participation from the Departments of Justice, Agriculture, and Transportation, all of whom play a role in chemical facility safety measures. The Working Group gathered concerns, comments, feedback, suggestions, and best practices from stakeholders over the course of several Webinars and listening sessions which culminated in a Report to the President released in May 2014, as well as an Action Plan contained therein.
The Working Group has made significant progress on the implementation of the Action Plan since the release of the report by initiating community planning preparedness measures, increasing Federal coordination, improving data management techniques and technology, revising regulations, issuing guidance and advisory documents, and creating a best practices repository, among other initiatives.
II. Scope of Webinar
The purpose of this Webinar is to update stakeholders and the public on progress made on action items since the June 6, 2014 release of “Executive Order [EO] 13650: Actions to Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security—A Shared Commitment”, and to raise awareness of the EO 13650 Working Group Web site, located at: www.osha.gov/chemicalexecutiveorder/.
We encourage participation from the broad range of stakeholders who have an interest in chemical facility safety and security to include, but not limited to, chemical producers, chemical storage companies, agricultural supply companies, State and local regulators, chemical critical infrastructure owners and operators, first responders, labor organizations representing affected workers, environmental and community groups, and consensus standards organizations.
III. Public Participation
This Webinar will accommodate over 600 participants. As time permits, participants will be able to ask questions on a first-come first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate all persons who wish to ask questions during the session. We request that participants refrain from making statements, and use this time to ask questions.
