CSB seeks to expand investigative capacity

29 August 2008

The CSB is seeking to recruit new chemical incident investigators to work in Denver, Colorado, in an effort to establish the agency's first regional presence outside of Washington, DC.

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 a new investigative team based in Denver that will deploy to accident sites primarily in the Western and Midwestern U.S. 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.”
