CSB Sets Houston Meeting on DuPont La Porte Release

CSB investigators will present their findings and suggested recommendations and will include an animation depicting the events that led to the deaths.

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board will hold a public meeting Sept. 30 in Houston to consider recommendations following the methyl mercaptan gas release that killed four workers at the DuPont La Porte facility on Nov. 15, 2014, ultimately causing OSHA to place the company in its Severe Violator Enforcement Program. Three other workers were injured.

"The meeting in Houston will be my first public meeting since commencing my tenure in August as chairperson. I believe it will be an extremely informative and productive evening. I am eager to meet with and hear from members of the community," CSB Chairperson Vanessa Allen Sutherland said. "It is important that the CSB's recommendations are made public, as their intent is to prevent a similar accident from occurring at the DuPont facility and at other sites across the country."

CSB investigators will present their findings and suggested recommendations and will include an animation depicting the events that led to the deaths. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at a downtown Houston hotel yet to be determined and is expected to end around 9 p.m. Pre-registration is not required, but to ensure adequate seating, attendees are asked to pre-register by emailing their names and affiliations to meeting@csb.gov.
