Confused on Chemical Risk Management? How to Navigate the Complex World of Chemical Risk Management

Join us in October for a discussion on how to comply with chemical risk management requirements in light of changing regulatory frameworks under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”), and U.S. Department of Transportation (“DOT”). Our discussion will focus on EPA and OSHA’s concurrent jurisdiction over chemical management and the complications that can arise when EPA’s requirements for a Risk Management Plan (“RMP”) and OSHA’s Process Safety Management (“PSM”) Standard apply to the same chemical processes. We’ll also address how the differences in chemical safety regulations can impact companies’ emergency preparedness, hazard communication, chemical labeling, and incident management during chemical manufacturing, supply, distribution, processing, or end use.

This presentation is ideal for in-house counsel and legal department members, human resources personnel, safety supervisors, plant managers, and managers.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
