5/4/18 - 10:47 - INFORMATION FROM US CHEMICAL SAFETY AND HAZARD INVESTIGATION BOARD
A four-person investigative team from the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) is investigating the scene of the April 26, 2018, explosion at the Husky Energy oil refinery in Superior, Wisconsin. The refinery was shutting down in preparation for a five-week maintenance turnaround when the incident occurred. Several workers sought medical attention and thousands of residents near the refinery were asked to evacuate due to heavy smoke.
 
The investigative team arrived in Superior the evening of April 26. To-date they are conducting interviews and reviewing evidence, including incident photos and documents. The initial, onsite phase of the investigation is expected to take several weeks. During this stage, the investigative team will focus on the following tasks:
 
  • Documenting and collecting physical evidence.
  • Photographing the refinery and the incident scene.
  • Interviewing Husky employees and contract employees involved in activities potentially pertaining to the incident.
  • Obtaining documents related to the tasks being performed at the refinery around the time of the incident, including work plans, site safety plans, hazard analyses, and job safety analyses.
  • Obtaining construction, maintenance, and inspection records of equipment suspected to be involved in the incident.
  • Reviewing the effectiveness of emergency response to the incident including evacuation efforts.
Review of the preliminary investigation results will determine the need for additional materials testing or interviews with employees. 
 
The CSB will continue to provide updates to the public as the investigation unfolds.
 
The CSB is an independent, non-regulatory federal agency charged with investigating serious chemical incidents. The agency's board members are appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. CSB investigations look into all aspects of chemical accidents, including physical causes such as equipment failure as well as inadequacies in regulations, industry standards, and safety management systems.
 
The Board does not issue citations or fines but does make safety recommendations to facility management, industry organizations, labor groups, and regulatory agencies such as OSHA and EPA. Visit our website, www.csb.gov.

INFORMATION FROM GHD AND HUSKY SUPERIOR REFINERY 
On behalf of GHD and Husky Superior Refinery, please find attached a summary of site perimeter air monitoring results from 5/1/18. Figure 1 in this report is a simple map showing monitoring locations. According to GHD “There were no exceedances of community action levels during the April 30 community monitoring. There were some low level TSP results above the community action levels on May 1; it was determined that these results were not related to the site and therefore they are not considered exceedances per the Air Monitoring Plan.”

INFORMATION FROM SUPERIOR WATER LIGHT AND POWER 
Superior Water, Light and Power operates its water treatment plant under the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act. These requirements and the associated testing protocol give us confidence that our water source, Lake Superior, is as safe today as it was prior to the Husky event.

PRESS RELEASE FROM CITY OF SUPERIOR MAYOR JIM PAINE
I just spoke with the officers of Husky Energy including the Rob Peabody, President and CEO, and Rob Symonds, COO. We discussed the use of Hydrogen Fluoride at the refinery and I forwarded many of the concerns that our community has expressed about the use of this dangerous chemical in the community. I asked them to discontinue its use and convert to a safer chemical process and to report back to me on any and all cost and infrastructure challenges that might prevent them from doing so. In the meantime, I asked them to disclose all of the safety measures they had and still have in place that prevent this chemical from harming the public as well as any other relevant facts regarding HF so that the public can remain informed during this debate.

I have asked Husky to commit to full transparency during their own and the several independent investigations and they have agreed. They have also committed to providing counseling and mental health services to those members of the community that may have been affected by the incident, especially children and the Husky employees and contractors.

I asked them to confirm a working number for any person to submit claims related to the incident including, but not limited to, transportation, lodging, and lost wages. That number is: 1-855-527-5002.

I asked if citizens would be required to sign a release of liability and how long they would be required to wait for reimbursement. They are not asking for release of liability and in many cases, reimbursement can take place immediately via direct deposit.

Most importantly, Husky Energy and its officers committed to an open and ongoing relationship with the people of Superior. They intend to rebuild and operate the Superior Refinery. They intend to make whole any person or property damaged by the incident. They intend to discover and report what happened and prevent any similar incident from happening again. I will take them at their word but I will also follow up with your questions and concerns as well as my own in the coming days, weeks, and months.

PRESS RELEASE FROM CITY OF SUPERIOR MAYOR JIM PAINE
I just met with U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB). This is an independent, non-regulatory, non-cabinet federal agency. They arrived in Superior last Thursday night and their investigation was underway within 18 hours of the start of the refinery fire. Their mission is to determine the probable cause of the explosion and resulting fire. In addition, they will also investigate any environmental impacts as well as our emergency response.

t the conclusion of their investigation, they may issue recommendations to relevant agencies including, Husky, the City of Superior, Douglas County, or state and federal agencies. In other words, they are here to find out what happened and how we prevent it in the future.

While their final report could take up to a year to complete, the CSB will issue interim factual updates as they begin to collect analyze the facts on the ground. They have assured me that if they discover any potential adverse effect on human or environmental health, that they will release that information to my office and the public immediately. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________
