IHMM Organizing Broader Government Affairs Activities – Call for Volunteers

In strategic planning on August 17, 2023 IHMM created a strategic imperative to create a broader government affairs operation on behalf of, and with the assistance of, all of IHMM’s certificants.

On August 29, 2023 IHMM’s Executive Director made a presentation of this strategic imperative to the AHMP annual conference. Here is what IHMM intends to organize over the next few months:

  • Federal Government  – Regulatory
    We need a group of people watching Federal regulatory developments to advise when taking action can be helpful and raise our visibility in the agencies.
  • Federal Government – Congress
    We need a group of people watching legislation to advise us when taking action can be helpful and raise our visibility in Congress.
  • State Governments – Regulatory
    We need a group of people watching state regulatory developments to advise when taking action can be helpful and raise our visibility in the agencies.
  • State Governments – Legislatures
    We need a group of people watching legislation to advise us when taking action can be helpful and raise our visibility in state legislatures.

If you want to make a difference in the recognition of your credentials and build on the successful record we have achieved thus far – we need you to volunteer. Learn more by visiting our Government Affairs Committee page, and get involved with government affairs. You can volunteer for one, two, three or all four of the segments of the committee’s work. That’s up to you!

IHMM GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

IHMM Proposes Changes in Government Recognition of Credentials

State of Maine Department of Environmental Protection is proposing to update Chapter 851, Standards for Generators of Hazardous Waste. In the current regulation work is required by a professional engineer. IHMM is proposing to include an environmental professional as defined by 40 CFR §312.10.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has a number of courses in occupational safety and health within which OSHA credits “A degree in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation.” IHMM will propose including the CHMM, CSHM, and CSMP.

Beltway Buzz, Ogletree Deakins

Congress: New Year, Same Shenanigans. Federal lawmakers returned to Washington, D.C., this week to kick off the second session of the 118th Congress. Unfortunately, not much has changed from 2023—at least not in the U.S. House of Representatives. With government funding for agriculture, energy and water, military construction and veterans affairs, and transportation expiring on January 19, 2024—one week from today—legislators are already scrambling to avoid a partial government shutdown next week. As a result, leadership in both chambers is taking steps to pass a continuing resolution to avoid such a scenario (and those discussions are off to a rocky start). Of course, while trying to resolve this immediate crisis, Congress hasn’t even started to address funding for the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which expires on February 2, 2024. At this time, it is unclear whether the continuing resolution that is being negotiated will cover this second batch of spending bills.

House Votes to Rescind NLRB’s Joint-Employer Rule. Earlier today, the House passed H.J. Res. 98 to rescind the NLRB’s joint-employer rule. The vote was 206–177, with eight Democrats voting in favor of the resolution. No word yet on when the Senate might vote on a companion measure, which has been introduced by Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA). (For more on Senator Cassidy’s recent scrutiny of the NLRB, please see “Senator Cassidy Blasts NLRB” below.) The White House has stated that President Biden will veto the measure if it arrives on his desk.

DOL Finalizes Independent Contractor Rule. On Wednesday, January 10, 2024, the DOL published in the Federal Register its final rule, “Employee or Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act.” The rule repeals and replaces the current independent contractor regulation promulgated during the Trump administration, which established a commonsense test that focused on an individual’s control over his or her work, and his or her opportunity for profit or loss. In contrast, the new rule sets forth a complicated and confusing “totality-of-the-circumstances analysis of the economic reality test” that will likely lead to more workers being classified as employees. Margaret SantenWilliam E. Collins Jr., and Taylor E. Gillan have the details. Even before the final rule was officially published in the Federal Register, Senator Cassidy, the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), announced that he would introduce a Congressional Review Act resolution to rescind the rule. The rule will go into effect on March 11, 2024.

Inching Closer to Paid Leave? This week, the bipartisan Paid Family Leave Working Group in the House of Representatives released a framework for potential paid leave legislation. The framework focuses on the following four pillars:

  1. Public-private partnership pilot. The working group is considering legislative options establishing public-private partnerships “to facilitate standing up and operating state-run programs … [for] states that have existing paid leave programs and those seeking to establish a new one.”
  2. Coordination and harmonization of paid leave benefits across states. This pillar introduces the concept of an “Interstate Paid Leave Action Network (I-PLAN)” that would convene, in part, to develop “equivalency standards so that multi-state employers can design paid uniform, nationwide leave programs that will satisfy the quantitative benefit elements of each state’s employer-based plan requirements and help employees better navigate and access available benefits.”
  3. Small employer pooling for paid leave insurance. This concept would “authorize small employers to join association-style insurance pooling plans, with the goal of pooling risk and lowering the cost of providing paid family leave.”
  4. Improvements to paid leave tax credits for small businesses and working families. The working group will explore ways to “improve the reach and accessibility” of paid family and medical leave tax credits.

The debate over paid leave still has a long way to go, but it has been making incremental progress, particularly following the federal emergency leave programs that were established during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Su Renominated. This week, President Biden renominated Julie Su—currently serving as both acting secretary of labor and deputy secretary of labor—to be secretary of labor. Su was originally nominated on February 28, 2023, following the departure of then-secretary of labor Martin Walsh. The full Senate never voted on her nomination, as Senator Manchin publicly opposed Su, and her nomination was returned to the White House upon the conclusion of the first session of the 118th Congress. At the moment, it is not clear whether the situation in the Senate will improve for Su this time around.

Senator Cassidy Blasts NLRB. This week, Senate HELP Committee Ranking Member Bill Cassidy (R-LA) released a report titled “The Biden Administration: Politicizing National Labor Law to Help Their Union Bosses.” The report focuses on allegations of election mismanagement by the Board in favor of unions, as well as the Board’s recent changes to its election rules and its decision that aligns with unions’ card check strategies. The report concludes by noting that “the minority staff for the HELP Committee will continue to investigate the NLRB’s politicized conduct to ensure that the Board, General Counsel Abruzzo, and all regions make every reasonable effort to maintain neutrality and carry out their statutory mission of promoting all employee choice, and not just a choice for unions.”

Resources for Schools Amidst Recent Threats

This week hundreds of schools across the country reported receiving bomb threats. The safety and security of students, teachers, and staff are of utmost importance, and it is disheartening to witness the disruption and fear caused by these threats. We understand that such incidents not only pose immediate concerns for physical safety but can also have a lasting emotional effect on the communities involved and beyond.

To support our communities and schools, we have compiled a list of resources that may be helpful. Please stay informed, follow guidance from local authorities, and reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

EPA Issues Final SNUR to Prevent Inactive PFAS from Reentering Commerce

On January 11, 2024, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final significant new use rule (SNUR) to prevent companies from starting or resuming the manufacture (including import) or processing of 329 per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that are designated as inactive on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Chemical Substance Inventory. 89 Fed. Reg. 1822. The final rule notes that persons subject to the final SNUR are required to notify EPA at least 90 days before commencing any manufacture (including import) or processing of the chemical substance for a significant new use. Once EPA receives a significant new use notification (SNUN), EPA must review and make an affirmative determination on the SNUN and take such action as is required by any such determination before the manufacture (including import) or processing for the significant new use can commence. EPA states that such a review “will assess whether the new use may present unreasonable risk to health or the environment and ensure that EPA takes appropriate action as required to protect health or the environment.” The SNUR will take effect March 11, 2024. For more information, please read the full memorandum.

DOL Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustments for 2024

The U.S. Department of Labor has issued a final rule announcing adjustments to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) civil penalty amounts. The final rule is effective January 15, 2024.

On November 2, 2015, the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 was enacted, which required agencies to: (1) adjust the level of civil monetary penalties with an initial “catch-up” adjustment through an interim final rule and (2) make subsequent annual adjustments for inflation, no later than January 15 of each year.

Visit the OSHA Penalties page and the final rule  for more information.

Congress Faces Time Crunch on Government Funding

Congress may need to pass a short-term government funding bill to prevent a partial shutdown next week, despite an announced spending deal by House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) last Sunday.

Johnson and Schumer have agreed to spend $1.66 trillion in the 2024 fiscal year, which ends in September. But that agreement leaves just days before funding for roughly 20 percent of the federal government expires on Jan. 19. Money for the rest of the government runs out two weeks after that, on Feb. 2.

Johnson is encountering opposition from some conservatives in his caucus who have demanded budget cuts and called his deal with Schumer a “total failure.” While House Republicans are adamantly against a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government, Senate leaders of both parties are cautioning that a CR is likely to be needed.

“We are all working nonstop right now to get this done, but we are obviously crunched for time,” Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, told reporters this week.

“They have a top-line agreement, Schumer and the speaker,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). “In the meantime, we need to prevent a government shutdown. The obvious question is how long the CR needs to be. That will be up to the majority leader and the speaker, to determine the length of the CR.”

Johnson told reporters this week that the House’s work on passing the necessary appropriations bills before Jan. 19 is “pedal to the metal.” But realistically, pacing is slower in the Senate, where four spending bills will need to be drafted and members will need time to review the legislative texts. In the Senate, each bill needs support from at least 60 members to avoid a filibuster.

DOL – Employee or Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act

The U.S. Department of Labor (the Department) is modifying Wage and Hour Division regulations to replace its analysis for determining employee or independent contractor classification under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or Act) with an analysis that is more consistent with judicial precedent and the Act’s text and purpose.

DATES:

This final rule is effective on March 11, 2024.

Executive Summary

This final rule addresses how to determine whether a worker is properly classified as an employee or independent contractor under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or Act). Congress enacted the FLSA in 1938 to eliminate “labor conditions detrimental to the maintenance of the minimum standard of living necessary for health, efficiency, and general well-being of workers.” [1To this end, the FLSA generally requires covered employers to pay nonexempt employees at least the Federal minimum wage for all hours worked and at least one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay for every hour worked over 40 in a workweek. The Act also requires covered employers to maintain certain records regarding employees and prohibits retaliation against employees who are discharged or discriminated against after, for example, filing a complaint regarding their pay. However, the FLSA’s protections do not apply to independent contractors.

Security Requirements and Considerations for Hazardous Materials Transportation

Millions of tons of hazardous materials transported each day, but not all shipments carry the same level of risk. Certain quantities and types of hazmat require security plans due to the elevated risks that they pose.

This brochure outlines the Safety and Security Plan requirements found in 49 CFR Part 172, Subpart I, including when a security plan is required, what should be included in the plan, and what additional training is necessary for those who fall under the security plan requirements. It also offers suggested security measures, per PHMSA’s Risk Management Self-Evaluation Framework, to help develop of these plans.

January 23, 2024
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

REGISTER NOW

2024 will be exciting, in a good sense. There is an exceptional level of uncertainty in Washington for the New Year, even in comparison to past election years. Two wars tugging at the national attention and the federal budget, a divided government now referring to just the House of Representatives alone, and an election year with one of the presumptive Presidential candidates under 91 indictments for crimes in multiple jurisdictions. Other than that, for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it will definitely not just be “another day at the office.” As an example, the new House Speaker marshaled a House budget bill that would cut EPA funding by almost 40 percent!

We invite you to join Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®); James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant, B&C; and Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Director of Chemistry, B&C for a lively, timely, and focused discussion on the state of play and how we expect things will shake out in 2024. Registration is open now. 

Topics Covered:

  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in 2024:
    • Final/proposed existing chemical rules;
    • TSCA Section 4 test rules;
    • Final fees rule;
    • Updated existing chemical framework rule;
    • Prioritization of additional substances;
    • Chemical Data Reporting;
  • Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) in 2024:
    • EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) activities expected as election year 2024 priorities;
    • EPA’s development of policies and strategies for implementation of the Endangered Species Act (ESA); and
    • OPP’s implementation of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2022 (PRIA 5) requirements.

New OSHA Electronic Injury and Illness Reporting Requirements for 2024 – Pillsbury Law

As 2023 is swiftly coming to a close, certain employers should begin preparing for electronic submission of injury and illness information to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 2024.

In July 2023, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) finalized its “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses” rule, which requires establishments with 100 or more employees in certain designated high-hazard industries (including agricultural, food production, manufacturing, retail, wholesale, transportation, medical and entertainment) to electronically submit information from their OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) once a year. Specifically, employers must submit detailed information about each recordable injury and illness, including the date, physical location and severity of the injury or illness; details about the worker who was injured; and details about how the injury or illness occurred. The rule is effective on January 1, 2024, and annual reporting is due March 2, 2024, through OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).

OSHA – New Injury Tracking Application

Please be aware that the updated Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Injury Tracking Application (ITA) is now available from osha.gov/injuryreporting. This page provides requirements and guidance about electronically submitting your establishments’ injury and illness data from the OSHA Form 300A: Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, OSHA Form 300: Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, and OSHA Form 301: Injury and Illness Incident Report.   These data help employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards -preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses.

As a reminder, establishments that meet certain size and industry criteria are required to electronically submit injury and illness data from their OSHA Form 300A, 300, and 301 (or equivalent forms) once per year to OSHA via the ITA. Employers should visit the ITA Coverage Application to determine whether they are required to submit this data. Data collection for CY 2023 will begin January 2, 2024, and must be submitted by March 2, 2024.

Linking Risk Characterization and Risk Management: How to Optimize Tools for a Safer Workplace

AIHA and the Foundation for Chemistry Research and Initiatives (FCRI) hosted a series of workshops on occupational risk assessment. The fifth and final webinar in the Many Paths – One Goal series, which was held on Dec. 7, brought together a panel of experts to discuss approaches for characterizing and managing risks in the workplace. The experts presented an overview of risk characterization, the application of the hierarchy of controls, risk management in the context of regulations (for example, EPA’s implementation of the Toxic Substances Control Act), and emerging hazard control technologies and practices.

EPA Updates

Fox Announces Departure From EPA, Casting Doubt On Water Office Agenda

In a surprise to key observers, EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water Radhika Fox is departing the agency at the end of next month, raising doubts on her office’s regulatory agenda, including high-profile drinking water rules governing lead and PFAS, and highlighting the limited number of Senate-confirmed officials running program offices.

EPA Moves To Codify Narrow Approach To Title V Air Permit Reviews

In a blow to environmentalists, EPA is planning to codify its current narrow view of what “applicable requirements” may be examined during review of Clean Air Act Title V air operating permits, seeking to entrench a more-restrictive approach first taken by the Trump administration that largely excludes consideration of underlying air permitting decisions.

EPA Finalizes TSCA Rule Limiting Resumed Use Of Over 300 ‘Inactive’ PFAS

EPA is finalizing a rule requiring industry to seek review from the agency before resuming almost any uses of 329 PFAS registered as “inactive,” rejecting both industry arguments that the rule exceeds its authority and environmentalists’ push to greatly expand both its scope and mandatory disclosures on the targeted chemicals.

EPA Offers OB/OD Alternatives But Continues to Stall RCRA Rule Revisions

EPA has quietly published a compendium of alternatives to open burning/open detonation (OB/OD) technologies for addressing spent munitions and other explosives even as it delays release of a proposed Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) rule that is expected to bar its use in some cases while generally encouraging alternatives.

Biden Officials Face Fierce Environmental Opposition As They Defend CCS

The Biden administration is continuing to defend its support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) part of its multi-pronged climate mitigation strategy, even as it faces mounting pushback from many environmentalists due to concerns about the technology’s safety and efficacy.

Pending Suits Tee Up New Precedents On Major Aspects Of Reformed TSCA

Courts are poised to decide two cases early in 2024 that could reshape how EPA implements key elements of the reformed TSCA, as industry groups seek limits on the agency’s powers to order toxicity testing and regulate new chemical uses.

Professional Certification Coalition

IHMM is a member of the PCC. The PCC monitors state and federal legislative and regulatory activity affecting professional certification on an ongoing basis. The PCC has compiled several “Watchlists” identifying and analyzing provisions in pending legislation at both the state and federal level that, under applicable rules, may still be enacted in the current legislative session.  Depending on the carry-over rules in the relevant legislature, the charts listing current legislation may include bills introduced in a prior year.  In addition, the PCC compiles each year a chart of enacted legislation that affects certification. The charts include hyperlinks to every bill or executive order. Note that the Watchlist and the Enacted Legislation document do not include profession-specific legislation and do not include regulatory initiatives. The charts will be updated as needed based on new developments.

IHMM Credential Recognition

The highest priority of IHMM’s Government Affairs Committee is the recognition of IHMM’s credentials by government. We have made substantial progress in the two years we have undertaken this endeavor, as outlined in detail here > https://ihmm.org/credential-recognition/

In this project we have 45-in-5, increasing the number of states that recognize IHMM credentials.

  • We have already succeeded in 13 states – New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Indiana, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, Arkansas, Oklahoma. Ohio, North Dakota, and Georgia. [Red states in the map above]. These are states where IHMM credentials are cited or 40 CFR 312.10 is cited by reference.
  • We have partially succeeded in another 16 states – Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Arizona, Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Florida, Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. [Orange/Black Stripe states in the map above] These are states where the requirements of an “environmental professional” or QEP are cited that coincide with an IHMM credential so that relatively little work would need to be done to clarify the desired outcome.
  • We have 21 states where no reference to an IHMM credential is made in either statute or regulation, nor is there anything defined in the area of an environmental professional. These states will require legislation or regulatory work. [Yellow states in the map above].

in January 2022 Gene Guilford released the 40 CFR § 312.10 EPA regulation that states a private certification that meets or exceeds the requirements of the regulation is an Environmental Professional under the regulation. Here is the crosswalk between the 40 CFR § 312.10 EPA regulation and the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager [CHMM] blueprint. The CHMM meets or exceeds the requirements of an Environmental Professional. 

Here’s what we ask each volunteer to do:

  • Watch legislative and regulatory developments in your state that provide an opportunity for us to create amendments or other interventions
  • Be willing to speak with regulators and legislators in your area about the recognition efforts we craft together

IHMM  – 26 Fellows Are Mentors 

IHMM Fellows Committee Chair Atanu Das, CHMM, is leading the effort within the IHMM Collaboration networking platform to engage both 26 IHMM Fellows as Mentors and anyone who seeks some assistance as Mentees.

Given the extraordinary experience Fellows have, this is a unique opportunity for IHMM Fellows to help guide more recent certificants in their professional development activities. This article from ASAE magazine outlines how a mentoring program can become more successful – engagement!

IHMM’s Collaboration platform contains a “Mentor Match” module [see below at right] that allows mentors to signup designating the hours, number of mentees, subject areas, and length of time they wish to mentor – as well as allowing mentees to signup requesting assistance in specified areas. The mentor match module does the rest by matching mentors and mentees.

IHMM is pleased to release two YouTube instructional videos about navigating the IHMM recertification process. These step-by-step videos easily enable IHMM certificants to start and complete a recertification application.

While the full recertification cycle is 5 years, IHMM encourages all certificants to start a recertification application and add certification maintenance points as they are earned to make the final submission quick and easy to accomplish.

Retiring? IHMM Invites You to Become an Emeritus

You may have decided, after a long and successful career, to retire from active daily duty. Congratulations. That doesn’t mean you have to completely disengage from your profession. IHMM is pleased to offer Emeritus status to all certificants who will no longer be actively engaged in their communities of practice but who still want to stay in touch. Please let us know when you’re approaching that decision and we will assist you in the credential transition.

Please contact Jimmy Nguyen at [email protected] and he’ll be happy to help you.

American Society of Safety Professionals

IHMM is a member of the American Society of Safety Professionals and is pleased to bring this important information to all of our certificants.

Easily Find Courses to Help You Pass IHMM Credential Exams

A core mission of HMS is education and training. Part of that mission includes assembling the best and most effective courses to assist IHMM applicants in passing their IHMM credential exams.

IHMM and HMS Tie Exam Preparation Together for Applicants

Every IHMM certification that requires an examination has a section of its website entitled Examination Preparation.

Connected to the Examination Preparation panel is a companion panel that is Find a Course to Prepare for the Exam.

You see the Find a Course to Prepare for the Exam panel from the CHMM site at left.

When you click on the Find a Course to Prepare for the Exam panel it takes the applicant directly to the HMS site where all CHMM prep courses may be found and chosen.

For the 399 CHMM applicants IHMM had on January 9, 2024, all 399 applicants looking for CHMM prep courses could see and choose their favored CHMM exam prep course. If your course is not on the HMS platform, none of the 399 CHMM applicants could find you.

If you want your CHMM prep course on the HMS platform so it can be found by IHMM CHMM applicants, contact Gene Guilford at [email protected]

HMS Makes Finding Courses to Earn CMPs Easy

Every year more than 1,600 IHMM certificants have to recertify their credentials, evidenced their continuing commitment to improvement and learning to elevate their professional credential.

Earning Certification Maintenance Points [CMPs] is illustrated under Recertification of Your Credential, that includes the Recertification Claims Manual – Appendix A, that details all of the ways a certificant may earn CMPs > https://ihmm.org/recertification-claims/

Having mastered that manual, how does an IHMM certificant find courses to earn CMPs?

HMS has made that simple and easy.

  1. Go to https://hazmatsociety.org/education-training/
  2. Scroll down until you see a row of buttons…click on the CMPs button

The system will then generate all of the courses on the HMS E&T platform with IHMM CMPs already attached.

The next developments by the HMS E&T committee will refine available courses’ CMPs by individual credential!

HMS Certified Dangerous Goods Professional [CDGP] Exam Prep

The Columbia Southern University/HMS CDGP prep course is found here on the Hazardous Materials Society [HMS] education and training website > https://hazmatsociety.org/training/ce-1112-cdgp-exam-prep/2022-02-02/

The CSU CDGP exam prep course is delivered entirely online and may be initiated by any CDGP applicant at any time. The CDGP applicant has up to 10 weeks to complete the prep course, though an extension of the 10 weeks may be requested from CSU directly. The CSU CDGP exam prep course contains 8 modules covering the 4 principle texts involved in the CDGP exam, as follows:

  • UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, and
  • International Civil Aviation Organization’s Technical Instructions (ICAO TI), and
  • International Air Transport Association’s Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR), and the
  • International Maritime Organization’s Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code).

Donate to HMS

One of the most important projects of the Hazardous Materials Society is our Scholarship Program.

HMS wants to make it as easy as possible for those who cannot always afford to participate in pursuing certification, or keeping up with professional development, or attending great conferences and receiving outstanding training. HMS does not solicit contributions from the general public. HMS does ask IHMM’s certificants and their companies and our education and training vendors to consider a contribution.

Here, through your generosity, you can make a difference in promoting the ability of those who can afford it least to become participants in our communities of practice.

It’s never too late to make a difference, so don’t let this opportunity to make a difference pass you by. Please consider a tax-deductible donation of $250, $500 or what you can to help build HMS’s effort to help others in our communities of practice.

RCM&D Professional Liability Insurance

HMS is proud to have partnered with RCM&D to be able to offer an outstanding comprehensive professional liability insurance program to IHMM certificants. Here, you will find information about this important program offering Environmental Consultants and Engineers Professional Liability coverage. This coverage is intended to add protection for loss stemming from actual or alleged negligent acts, errors and omissions in performing professional services.

For more information see > https://hazmatsociety.org/professional-liability-insurance/
