Feds critical of portable trailer safety plan

So the brain surgeons at the Chemical Safety Board are critical of the American Petroleum Institute's suggestion regarding portable trailers in chemical plants. I have not found nor read BP's procedure, but it appears to me that this is something else that needs proper risk assessment rather than a blanket, Eva Rowe, 1000 foot rule. I'd rather have engineers making the assessment rather than people who don't know the difference between the TNRCC and TCEQ. But this is just me talking here (who, by the way, has a chemical engineering degree and 15 years experience in the chemical industry).
