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.

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
I really enjoy your workshops. Thank you for such a great program and all the help Lion has provided me over the years!
