Efforts to recruit investigators in Colorado continued
05 January 2009
The US Chemical Safety Board (CSB) is continuing to recruit chemical incident investigators to work in Denver, Colorado, in an effort to establish the agency's first regional office outside of Washington, DC. The office will be located at the federal centre in Lakewood, just west of Denver.
The agency has announced multiple vacancies for investigators in Denver, ranging from the GS-11 to GS-14 grade levels. The investigators are expected to form the core of an investigative team based in Denver that will deploy to accident sites primarily in the Western and Midwestern US. The team will be headed by CSB Supervisory Investigator Don Holmstrom, who led the Board's investigation of the BP Texas City refinery explosion from 2005-2007, as well as numerous other significant investigations.
“Establishing a presence in the western states potentially will allow the CSB to recruit more effectively, to deploy investigators more quickly to accident sites, and to maintain important contacts with stakeholders throughout the country,” said CSB Chairman John Bresland. “Expanding into other locations will help us grow our capacity to investigate more of the serious chemical accidents that occur each year across the U.S.”
