Several public listening sessions will be held this month regarding Executive Order 13650: Improving Chemical Storage Facility Safety and Security, which was issued following the West, Texas, incident, and aimed squarely at the agricultural retail industry.

ARA urges you to register, attend and speak at the public sessions (ARA's talking points and additional background). Below are the dates, locations and registration information for each session.

Although the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other federal agencies recognize existing regulations on retailers, they continue to push for more regulations as the solution to preventing another accident like the one in West.

During the listening sessions, OSHA is seeking comments on potential revisions to its Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals Standard (PSM).

The revisions recommend stricter requirements for handling ammonia, ammonium nitrate and other agricultural chemicals.
