Senate Confirms Bresland as Chairman/CEO of Chemical Safety Board

Acting by unanimous consent today, the U.S. Senate confirmed John S. Bresland to a five-year term as chairman and chief executive officer of the U.S. Chemical Safety Board. Bresland, a process safety consultant and former Honeywell executive, previously served as a CSB board member from August 2002 until August 2007 after being nominated by President Bush in June 2002.

The CSB is an independent federal agency established in 1998 with the mission to protect workers, the public, and the environment by investigating and preventing chemical accidents. The agency determines the root causes of these accidents and makes safety recommendations to government agencies, companies, and other organizations. The CSB does not issue fines or citations or apportion responsibility for accidents.
