Analysis of the EPA RMP* Info Database
MetadataShow full item record
EPA’s risk management program requires regulated facilities to submit a risk management plan, which includes the 5-year accident history of the facility. EPA has compiled the risk management plan in the RMP*Info database. This paper presents an analysis of the RMP*Info database in order to determine the most significant chemicals released and other trends. According to this analysis, 85% of the releases in the chemical industry are due to twelve chemicals. The sources of those releases and their consequences are presented. In addition, the effects of the chemical type, toxic or flammable, and the number of full time employees in the facilities are discussed.
