CSB Shares Chemical Release Incident Data
Any accidental release that results in death, serious injury, or substantial property damage must be reported to CSB within eight hours of the release. The regulation is found at 40 CFR 1604.3.
Under US EPA regulations (40 CFR 302.6), releases of hazardous substances at or above the substance’s Reportable Quantity (RQ) must be reported immediately to the National Response Center (NRC). For releases reported to the NRC, a facility can satisfy CSB’s reporting requirement by providing the NRC identification number to CSB within 30 minutes of submitting the report to NRC.
153 Releases ReportedCSB lists 153 reportable releases between March 23, 2020 and May 9, 2022. 24 of the releases caused fatalities, 90 caused serious injury, and 62 caused substantial property damage.
The list of reported releases is available for download from CSB’s website. CSB will update the database quarterly.

The course was very well structured and covered the material in a clear, concise manner.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
