CHILWORTH TECHNOLOGY EXPECTS INCREASED SCRUTINY AND TARGETED OSHA INSPECTIONS AT THE NATION’S 13,000+ CHEMICAL FACILITIES

Princeton, NJ, September 16, 2013 – Chilworth Technology, Inc. (Chilworth) announced today that it expects increased scrutiny including targeted OSHA inspections at the nation’s 13,000+ chemical facilities in light of the April ammonium nitrate explosion in West, Texas that killed 15 people and injured 200 more, and the August 1 presidential executive order to improve safety at chemical facilities nationwide.

“We expect a greater number of OSHA inspections as the new presidential order is implemented,” said Vahid Ebadat, CEO of Chilworth North America. He continued, “In a facility handling or storing reactive chemicals, the population at risk often extends beyond the walls of the facility and includes emergency responders and the surrounding community. The Texas explosion was a stark reminder that the handling and storage of reactive chemicals presents serious risks that are not always properly addressed.”
