Crisis Is Over at Texas Plant, but Chemical Safety Flaws Remain - The New York Times

'The Chemical Safety Board is hobbled by a tiny staff and budget, and its recommendations are often ignored by federal agencies. '

'The United States Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board said it was opening an investigation into the Arkema fires. '

'For years, chemical safety experts, including the Chemical Safety Board, have urged the E.P.A. to regulate chemicals that may not be highly toxic, but may cause violent explosions or fires — like the organic peroxides that caused the explosions in Crosby. '

'In 2006, the plant faced state penalties for improper storage of the chemicals, which triggered a fire at the site. '

'OSHA has few inspectors trained to examine chemical facilities, and rarely inspects chemical facilities unless there is an accident or particular complaint. '
