Hazardous Materials Safety
Research and Development (R&D) is an investment in shaping the future of an organization. An effective, efficient, and aggressive R&D strategic plan is necessary to focus on initiatives that produce the best return on investment. The Office of Hazardous Materials Safety's (OHMS) R&D program directs basic and applied research for the purpose of minimizing risks associated with the transportation of hazardous materials (HM).
Pipeline Safety
PHMSA's Pipeline Safety R&D Program conducts and supports research to support regulatory and enforcement activities and to provide the technical and analytical foundation necessary for planning, evaluating, and implementing the pipeline safety program. This program is sponsoring research and development projects focused on providing near-term solutions that will increase the safety, cleanliness, and reliability of the nation's pipeline system.
