Chemical Accident Prevention: How to Ensure Ongoing Compliance and Avoid Being Targeted for Enforcement - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid common mistakes related to your RMP, and develop a general duty clause compliance plan that reduces the risk of enforcement actions related to chemical accident prevention at your facility.



Twenty years after the regulations went into effect, facilities are continuing to struggle to comply with EPA’s chemical accident prevention regulations, more commonly referred to as the risk management program. In the first six months of 2019 the EPA issued almost $600,000 in fines for failure to comply with various chemical accident prevention provisions. Not only are facilities failing to comply with the regulations under 40 CFR 68, but smaller facilities are getting cited for general duty clause violations.

The EPA has taken note, and has identified reducing risks of accidental releases at industrial and chemical facilities as a national compliance initiative, so that facilities and communities are not left at risk.

Use this on-demand webinar with Steve Arendt of ABS Group who will teach you how to identify the risk management requirements that apply to your facility and help you stay in compliance, avoiding costly fines.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify the risk management requirements that apply to your facility
  • Recognize common areas of non-compliance with EPA’s Risk Management Program regulations
  • Troubleshoot your RMP and make the necessary corrections to avoid enforcement actions
  • Develop a plan for general duty clause compliance, where needed
  • Correctly answer questions such:
    • What do I have to do if I have an RMP-listed chemical present below the regulatory threshold?
    • What accident prevention program elements should I have in place to comply with the general duty clause?
    • How do I determine how frequently I need to conduct a process hazard analysis? 

And, as a bonus for attending, you’ll get BLR’s Chemical Accident Prevention: General Duty Compliance Checklist!
