Risk Management Program Database Analysis

EPA Region 10, Office of Environmental Cleanup, Emergency Management Program

The mission of the Emergency Management Program is to prepare, prevent and respond to chemical releases toxic or flammable in protecting human health and the environment from significant risks.

The fellow will have an opportunity to participate in many aspects of the Clean Air Act Risk Management Program. The Risk Management Program was created to prevent and prepare for releases of toxic and flammable substances that have the potential for catastrophic consequences. The Risk Management Program requires facilities that produce, handle, process, distribute or store greater than a threshold quantity of any listed toxic or flammable, extremely hazardous substance to develop a Risk Management Program, prepare a Risk Management Plan (RMP) and submit the RMP to the EPA. The Risk Management Program monitors and inspects the compliance of facilities with an RMP.

During this project, the fellow will conduct analysis using the following two data systems: (1) the Risk Management Program database, which collects facility monitoring information, and (2) the national database. The fellow will interact with representatives (or staff) of other federal, state and local government agencies and also will learn about the broader mission of the Emergency Management Program.

The fellow will gain knowledge of the EPA's Risk Management Program, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), and emergency response programs concerning the prevention of chemical releases that could affect the environment and members of the public. The fellow will enhance his or her writing, communication, and presentation skills and participate in briefings, meetings and field work.

Final Product:
The fellow will develop a report and present his or her findings on the project.
