CSB Receives European Process Safety Award for Videos
CSB Chairman John Bresland said, “The CSB is pleased and honored to be the recipient of this coveted award in recognition of our safety video program. We are proud of the videos and the fact that they are used to promote chemical process safety around the world. We are doubly honored to know we are the first organization in the United States to receive the EPSC award.”
The EPSC was founded by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering and has a membership that includes chemical companies, manufacturers, contractors, consultants and academic institutions representing a significant part of the process safety community in Europe.
CSB’s videos provide in-depth examinations of major chemical accidents investigated by the federal agency. They include computer animations that depict the chain of events leading to explosions, fires, leaks, loss of life, and serious injury. They typically include commentary by agency investigators, board members, outside experts, accident victims and eyewitnesses.
Dr. Daniel Horowitz, the director of congressional, public and board affairs for the CSB, oversees the production of the videos. He will accept the award during a presentation in Bruges, Belgium, in June.
