Several hundred thousand facilities in the United States use, manufacture, and store chemicals, encompassing everything from petroleum refineries to pharmaceutical manufacturers to hardware stores. The U.S. chemical industry manufactures over 70,000 unique products, many of which are critical to the health, security, and economy of the Nation. However, the handling and storage of chemicals at facilities present security and safety risks that can be reduced or mitigated by industry, with federal, state and local governments providing the necessary regulatory oversight and compliance assistance.

To address these issues, the Department of Labor, Department of Homeland Security, and the Environmental Protection Agency created and signed the Chemical Facility Security and Safety Working Group Charter. The working group, which includes other federal agency representatives, has oversight of chemical facility security and safety and is committed to working with stakeholders to address security and safety at chemical facilities, and reducing risks associated with hazardous chemicals to workers and communities.
