Following 2012 Chevron fire, California to consider new regulations on refineries
from The Mercury News
Four years after a massive fire at the Chevron refinery sent thousands of people to area hospitals, California is considering new regulations for oil refineries that, if enacted, could be among the toughest in the country. Proposed changes include adopting safer designs and systems, giving refinery employees authority to shut down operations if they feel there are unsafe conditions, and requiring all incidents to be investigated, not just those the refinery chooses.
