In the last 10 years more than 1,500 incidents have happened at chemical plants, causing over $2 billion in property damages and nearly 60 deaths. In response, the Executive Order Working group from EO 13650 is proposing revisions to their Risk Management Program (RMP) in 2016. Their intention is to enhance chemical industry operations to better prevent accidents and to make sure that surrounding communities are prepared if a chemical plant accident happens.
