WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 21, 1998) --- In one of its last acts 
before adjourning, the United States Senate today (Wednesday) 
confirmed by unanimous consent President Clinton's nominations 
of Dr. Isadore Rosenthal and Dr. Andrea Taylor as members 
of the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB).  
The action by the Senate fills two of three vacant seats on the 
five-member board that began operation in January of this year. 

Dr. Rosenthal , of Levittown, Pennsylvania, has been a Senior 
Fellow at the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Process 
Center at the University of Pennsylvania.  He holds a Ph.D. in  
Physical Chemistry from Pennsylvania  State University.

Dr. Taylor, of Detroit, Michigan, has been an Occupational Health 
Policy Consultant/Industrial Hygienist for the United Automobile, Aerospace 
and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW). She holds 
a Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and 
Public Health.

The Chemical Safety Board is an independent federal agency charged 
with ensuring the safety of workers and the public by preventing 
or minimizing the effects of industrial and commercial chemical 
incidents. Congress modeled it after the National Transportation 
Safety Board (NTSB), which investigates aircraft and other 
transportation accidents for the purpose of improving safety. 

Like the NTSB, the CSB is a scientific investigatory organization. 
CSB is responsible for finding ways to prevent or minimize the 
effects of chemical accidents at industrial facilities and in transport; 
the Board is not an enforcement or regulatory body.
