The new blueprint for the IHMM Certified Safety and Health Manager credential is here.

IHMM Board Nominations Open

Heather Waldmann, CHMM, Chair of the IHMM Nominating Committee [https://ihmm.org/nominating-committee/], is pleased to announce the opening of the Board nominating season for 2022.

In 2022 the IHMM Nominating Committee solicits candidates for three [3] director positions that will be open on January 1, 2021. [1] Certified Dangerous Goods Professional [CDGP], [1] Certified Safety and Health Manager [CSHM], and [1] At-Large, that can be either a CHMM, CDGP, CHMP, CSHM, or CSMP.

The documents describing the nominations and elections process and forms for submitting nominations are here:

IHMM-AHMP 45 in 5 Adds Minnesota

IHMM is pleased to announce that the State of Minnesota has been added to our 45 in 5 program’s list of states recognizing IHMM credentials.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation uses CHMMs for its Regulated Materials Management program, handling regulated materials for the DOT and its projects. Minnesota becomes the 8th state in the nation with specific recognition of the IHMM CHMM.

In January 2021 Mark Bruce at AHMP and Gene Guilford at IHMM launched 45 in 5, getting 45 states [now 42 states] to recognize our credentials in 5 years. If we can find a volunteer like Mark in 42 other states we can work with those volunteers on crafting the right message to the right agencies in state governments across the country. If we find enough volunteers we can get this done in less than 5 years.

in January 2021 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. 

IHMM is also working with the U.S. Small Business Administration on SBA SOP 50 10 6, Lender and Development Company Loan Programs, and the definition of an “Environmental Professional” drawn from 40 CFR § 312.10. The SBA in SOP 50 10 6 provides guidance to its participating lending institutions regarding those eligible to perform Phase One environmental site assessments.

IHMM GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS


Beltway Buzz – Ogletree Deakins

Trump-Era Independent Contractor Rule Reinstated. In a decision issued on March 15, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas reinstated the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) rule, “Independent Contractor Status Under the Fair Labor Standards Act,” which was originally scheduled to take effect on March 8, 2021. The Trump-era rule, which focused on workers’ control over the work and their opportunity for profit and loss, never went into effect as it was quickly paused and then rescinded altogether by the Biden administration. Business groups subsequently filed a legal challenge over the administration’s pause and rescission of the Trump-era rule. In this ruling, the court focused on process—a frequent agency rulemaking slip-up, no matter the administration—holding that the DOL violated the Administrative Procedure Act when rescinding the rule because it did not provide a meaningful opportunity for the public to comment on its proposals and also “refused to ‘meaningfully consider more limited policies’ than the total withdrawal of the Independent Contractor Rule.” The judge reinstated the rule as of its original effective date (March 8, 2021), and it remains in effect. The DOL has not yet stated whether it will appeal the decision.

DOL Proposes Prevailing Wage Changes. With passage of the $1.5 trillion infrastructure law, the administration continues to make policy changes that will impact the implementation of the law. First, President Biden issued his executive order on project labor agreements. Then, late last week, the DOL announced that it is proposing changes to its regulations implementing the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA)—the 1931 law that requires the payment of government-set prevailing wage rates to workers performing work on covered federally funded construction projects. Currently, the prevailing wage is identified as such if it is paid to a majority of workers in the area, otherwise, a weighted average rate is used. The proposal would scrap this formulation in favor of a pre-1983 definition of “prevailing wage” that allows such wage to be set if it is paid to only 30 percent of workers in the area. The proposal also contains new anti-retaliation clauses for covered contracts that are “intended to ensure that workers who raise concerns about payment practices or assist agencies or the Department in investigations are protected from termination or other adverse employment actions.” Finally, the proposal would strengthen agency withholding procedures to aid in backpay recovery when a violation occurs. The proposed changes would also impact the seventy-one other “related acts” that use the DBA prevailing wage calculation.

Federal Contractor Agency Issues New Pay Equity Directive. On March 15, 2022, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issued a directive that “explains how OFCCP reviews contractors’ compliance with their obligations to conduct an in-depth compensation analysis” and “clarifies OFCCP’s authority to access and review contractors’ pay equity audits.” Of particular note, the directive claims that OFCCP has the authority to order the production of pay equity audits conducted with the assistance of counsel. Leigh M. Nason has the details.

EEOC Issues COVID-19 Caregiver Guidance. This week the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a technical assistance document that provides guidance relating to discrimination against applicants and employees who have COVID-19–related caregiving responsibilities. For example, the guidance reminds employers that it is unlawful to refuse to hire a female applicant, or take an adverse action against a female employee, based on the assumption that she is focused on COVID-19–related caregiving responsibilities (e.g., such as staying home with children who are participating in remote learning). Similarly, it would be unlawful to prohibit a male employee from working a flexible schedule to care for a family member with COVID-19, if similarly situated female employees are granted such permission. The guidance also provides other examples relating to other protected categories—such as race, age, LGBTQI+ status—and COVID-19–related caregiving responsibilities.

House Bans Arbitration. Following the recent enactment of the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act of 2021, congressional opponents of alternative dispute resolution are looking to strike while the iron is hot. On March 17, 2022, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act by a vote of 222-209. The bill prohibits predispute arbitration agreements in employment, consumer, antitrust, and civil rights disputes. Due to its broad scope, the bill faces an uphill climb in the U.S. Senate.

Time of the Season. Because the Buzz has previously reported on national efforts to set certain uniform time policies, we feel duty bound to report that the U.S. Senate this week passed—by unanimous consent—the Sunshine Protection Act, a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent. Of course, this is not the first time we have tried permanent daylight saving time. As a result of a similar act of the U.S. Congress, beginning in January 1974, the United States switched to permanent daylight saving time on a two-year trial basis. However, the switch was so unpopular, it lasted less than a year. By August 1974, Congress voted to return to our current system (the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives was an overwhelming 383 to 16), and then-president Gerald Ford signed the legislation in October 1974. No word yet on how the House of Representatives will respond to the bill.


EPA Publishes Final Scope of D4 Risk Evaluation, Seeks Comment on Draft Revision to PV29 Risk Determination

On March 7, 2022, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of the final scope of the risk evaluation to be conducted for octamethylcyclotetra-siloxane (D4), a chemical substance for which EPA received a manufacturer request for risk evaluation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 87 Fed. Reg. 12696. The scope document includes the conditions of use (COU), hazards, exposures, and the potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations (PESS) that EPA plans to consider in conducting the risk evaluation for this chemical substance. EPA also published a separate notice announcing the availability of and requesting public comment on a draft revision to the risk determination for the Colour Index Pigment Violet 29 (PV29) risk evaluation. 87 Fed. Reg. 12690. EPA states that the draft revision finds that PV29, as a whole chemical substance, presents an unreasonable risk of injury to health when evaluated under its COUs. The draft revision would supersede the COU-specific no unreasonable risk determinations in the January 2021 PV29 risk evaluation, would withdraw the associated order, and would make a revised determination of unreasonable risk for PV29 as a whole chemical substance. EPA notes that in addition, the draft revised risk determination does not reflect an assumption that workers always appropriately wear personal protective equipment (PPE). Comments on the draft revision to the PV29 risk determination are due April 21, 2022. For more information, please read the full memorandum.

EPA Seeks Public Input on  Industrial Stormwater Fact Sheet Series

On January 25, 2022, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a Federal Register Notice to seek public input for 60 days on the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Industrial Stormwater Fact Sheet Series. EPA’s industrial stormwater program has 29 fact sheets currently posted online for each sector covered under the 2021 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for stormwater discharges from industrial activity. Each fact sheet describes the types of facilities included in the sector, typical stormwater pollutants associated with the sector, and types of stormwater control measures (SCMs) that may be used to minimize the discharge of the pollutants.

EPA is particularly focused on updating: common activities, pollutant sources, and associated pollutants at facilities in each sector; and SCMs or best management practices (BMPs), including source control and good housekeeping/pollution prevention measures for potential pollutant sources at facilities in each sector. In updating the fact sheets, EPA will consider input received in response to this notice as well as any relevant comments related to the content of the fact sheets that the Agency received during the public comment period for the proposed 2021 MSGP. The fact sheets can be found in the docket (Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2022-0097) and at https://www.epa.gov/​npdes/​stormwater-discharges-industrial-activities-fact-sheets-and-guidance.

The comment period closes on March 28, 2022. The Federal Register Notice can be found here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2022/01/25/2022-01382/national-pollutant-discharge-elimination-system-npdes-industrial-stormwater-fact-sheet-series.
