Washington, D.C. – National Association of Manufacturers Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg released the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a final rule that strengthens manufacturing facility safety and security.
Manufacturers believe strongly in safety as part of an ongoing commitment to the communities around them and those they serve. This is why NAM members make security investments and prudently engage in risk management planning, and that’s why we support the action the EPA is taking now, said Eisenberg. By further strengthening the integrity of the Risk Management Program, the EPA can help guarantee safety and security for facilities and communities by ensuring manufacturers are able to continue making safe, innovative and sustainable products while protecting human health and the environment.
The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing employs more than 12.8 million men and women, contributes $2.38 trillion to the U.S. economy annually, has the largest economic multiplier of any major sector and accounts for more than three-quarters of private-sector research and development. The NAM is the powerful voice of the manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers compete in the global economy and create jobs across the United States.
