IHMM UPDATES

IHMM Announces New CHMP® Test Specification (Blueprint) Effective March 2021

The Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) conducts a Job Task Analysis (JTA) to validate all certification examinations every five years, or more often if circumstances warrant.  The job analysis identifies the performance areas and associated knowledge, tasks, skills, and abilities relating to the credential.  During the JTA process, a new blueprint based on the consensus of the profession validated by survey participants.  The blueprint provides the areas of competency that a minimally qualified candidate must have to be deemed competent.

 U.S. Technical Advisory Group [TAG] on ISO 45000

Tom Slavin, CSHM, is our representative on the US technical advisory group (TAG) to ISO 45000.  The primary activity of the committee was the development of the ISO 45001 standard on safety and health management systems.  That standard activity is quiet now until it comes up for revision/reapproval in a couple of years.  In the meantime, there are several other committee activities that we thought you should be aware of:

  • An implementation guide for ISO 45001 is being developed.
  • A small business guide for ISO 45001 is being developed.
  • ISO 45003 on the management of psychosocial stress is under development.  
  • This new activity on safe work in pandemics is being introduced.

IHMM Thanks Tom and the TAG for all of its work developing this technical advisory group and everyone may learn more about this important effort here.

IHMM GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

Senate Grapples With COVID-19 Relief

Last week IHMM wrote that it would be a miracle if the Senate and House finished the next iteration of COVID-19 legislation in the first week of August. Unfortunately, we were correct. House, Senate, and White House negotiators are still far apart in their efforts to complete legislation. Below is a graphic from the Center for a Responsible Federal Budget that fairly describes the status of the differences that exist as of this past weekend.
