GLRPPR Sector Resource: Risk Management Planning Assistance

Risk Management Planning Assistance

Many businesses handle chemicals that could pose a risk to the surrounding community if an accident were to occur. As of June 1999, the chemical accident prevention rule from the U.S. EPA affects businesses and facilities that use hazardous chemicals. This Illinois Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC) fact sheet provides information on the Risk Management Plan (RMP) rule, the reasons behind the rule, information on how to comply and contact information for assistance.
