CSB Safety Videos Viewed More than 1 Million Times

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board has released an analysis presenting comments from individuals who have requested and used the agency's computer-animated safety videos, ranging from industry safety managers to emergency responders to union officials. CSB said it interviewed people around the country and overseas who use its 14 safety videos, which present the findings and recommendations from CSB accident investigations.

Since the launch of the program in December 2005, CSB safety videos have been viewed more than one million times over the Internet, it said. More than 75,000 DVDs have been distributed to industry and labor groups, government agencies, safety trainers, educators, emergency responders, and individual requesters throughout the world.

"The intent of the CSB's safety video program is to provide concise, accurate, and compelling information on the findings and recommendations from CSB investigations," said CSB Chairman John Bresland. "Based on the thousands of positive comments we have received--and the huge number of people in industry using these videos--we believe this to be a worthwhile and effective means of promoting awareness of serious chemical hazards. The feedback from a whole range of important stakeholders confirms that the program is working and is, we hope, helping to prevent future accidents."

CSB is an independent federal agency charged with investigating industrial chemical accidents. CSB investigations look into all aspects of chemical accidents, including physical causes such as equipment failure as well as inadequacies in regulations, industry standards, and safety management systems. The agency does not issue citations or fines but does make safety recommendations to plants, industry organizations, labor groups, and regulatory agencies such as OSHA and EPA.
