Description
 
In April 2013, about 30 tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer detonated during a fire at a facility in Texas, killing at least 14 people and damaging nearby schools, homes, and a nursing home. This incident raised concerns about the risks posed by similar facilities across the country. The Occupational Safety and Health Admin. (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) play a central role in protecting workers and communities from chemical accidents, and the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) administers a chemical facility security program. This report addresses (1) how many facilities have ammonium nitrate in the U.S.; (2) how OSHA and EPA regulate and oversee facilities that have ammonium nitrate; and (3) what approaches selected other countries have adopted for regulating and overseeing facilities with ammonium nitrate. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
