WORKPLACE SAFETY IN THE CHEMICAL PROCESSING INDUSTRY -- (Senate - October 17, 2002)
[Page: S10665]    The investigation by the independent, non-regulatory board points out significant deficiencies in federal safety regulations that are meant to control the dangers from chemical processes. As the result of these inadequacies, more than half of the serious accidents caused by reactive chemicals occurred in processes that were exempt from the major Federal process safety rules.    The tragic results of these omissions now seem apparent.
