Risk Management Program Introduction

About the Course

Public awareness of the potential danger from accidental releases of hazardous chemicals has increased over the years, due to serious releases that have occurred worldwide. These disasters suggest the need for enhanced risk management regulatory controls to eliminate or minimize potential dangers in the future. The Environmental Protection Agency's Risk Management Program (RMP) rule was created to prevent serious chemical releases that could affect public health and the environment, and to improve the response to any accidents that do occur. This online course introduces the Risk Management Program (RMP) series designed to support RMP rule compliance. The eLearning course is the basis for training in regulatory compliance.
