Your Opportunity To Learn What Local Companies and Utilities Are Doing To Prevent Accidents


The California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP) Program requires companies with regulated chemicals to submit a Risk Management Plan (RMP). The Risk Management Plan gives:

  • A description of the hazardous materials present,
  • The prevention programs in place at the facility,
  • The facility’s emergency response program,
  • And the management systems in place to implement the overall program.

The CalARP Program requires Contra Costa Health Services to perform document reviews and audits to ensure companies are in compliance with the CalARP Program regulations and are following their RMP. A forty-five day public comment period for the RMPs and Preliminary Audit Findings listed below begins June 28, 2006 and will end on August 12, 2006. These and other RMPs and Preliminary Audit Findings may be reviewed at the Contra Costa Health Services Hazardous Materials Programs Office located at 4333 Pacheco Blvd. in Martinez. Call 925-646-2286 to schedule an appointment. The RMPs and Preliminary Audit Findings may also be reviewed at the libraries listed below.
