IHMM Certified School Safety Manager® [CSSM®] Credential

Mike Howe, CSSM, Chair of the CSSM-CSSS Committee, is pleased to announce that the committee now releases its credential blueprint. When IHMM took over the CSSM credential in 2019 it had no blueprint or examination. Thanks to the outstanding leadership of Mike Howe leading his committee not only do we have a credential blueprint, we are almost ready to begin finalizing the CSSM examination as well.

Identifying all of the threats and vulnerabilities likely to impact a K-12 school district or post-secondary schools is a critical part of the emergency operations planning process for all schools. One only has to look at the day’s news to understand the importance of having professional, certified school safety managers in place guiding the planning and execution of sound safety programs. Colonel Chris Owens, a CSSM committee member, is already at work with the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association and the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency on how what IHMM is creating can be incorporated into the operations of Georgia schools.

This IHMM committee is making the CSSM credential real, and is starting to engage their communities with efforts to make schools safer using professionally certified school safety managers. Look for the new CSSM examination before the end of 2022.

The new CSSM credential blueprint is found here.

IHMM Certified Pandemic Preparedness Specialist® [CPPS®] Credential

Dan Blankfeld, CSHM, CSMP, Chair of the Microcredential Task Force, is pleased to announce the release of the IHMM Certified Pandemic Preparedness Specialist [CPPS] credential blueprint. The Task Force received more than 200 suggestions for microcredentials that could be used in conjunction with existing IHMM credentials to add depth to specific knowledge and experience areas. Microcredentials are short, focused credentials designed to provide in-demand skills, know-how and experience.

A Certified Pandemic Preparedness Specialist® (CPPS®) Microcredential holder is first a CHMM or CSHM credentialed professional who has demonstrated, through education, experience, and examination, the ability to identify and assess the risks associated with pathogens and their effect on public health, commerce, industry, and/or government operation. The focus of the CPPS microcredential is to: assess and provide guidance concerning the preparedness levels of different entities, and develop and implement risk-reduction strategies.

The Task Force is making progress on the construction of the CPPS examination at this writing. We look forward to the completion of the examination and launch of the credential to the IHMM community and then begin working with federal officials from the CDC, NIH, and White House Pandemic Innovation Task Force on being better prepared for the next pandemic. Read the March, 2022 release from the White House here.

The new CPPS credential blueprint is found here.

IHMM-AHMP 45 in 5 Credential Recognition During Its First 18 Months

Mark Bruce and Gene Guilford launched 45 in 5 in January 2021, so about 18 months ago. The “45” was a target to add 45 states recognizing our credentials, as we had 5 at the time, and the “5” was for 5 years. How are we doing after the first 18 months?  Note: IHMM intends on engaging in this work on behalf of ALL of our credentials. 

Our progress is here > https://ihmm.org/credential-recognition/

After having Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Indiana, we added Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ohio, California, and Georgia.  By the fall of 2021, the group wanted us to focus on federal agencies, so we embarked on some research to add to the 9 federal agencies that already recognized the CHMM.

The states highlighted in yellow in the map above are where we have legal research being conducted now. Last week IHMM began working with Alaska, Arizona, and Puerto Rico as well.

EPA’s Industrial Stormwater Sector-Specific Fact Sheet Stakeholder Meetings

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting a series of public meetings in Fall 2022 to inform updates to EPA’s industrial stormwater fact sheet series. Last updated in 2006, EPA developed a fact sheet to provide guidance to each of the 29 industrial sectors covered under the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP), which authorizes stormwater discharges from industrial activity in areas where EPA is the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting authority. Each fact sheet describes the types of facilities included in the sector, typical pollutants associated with the sector, and types of stormwater control measures used to minimize the discharge of the pollutants. These resources are an important part of EPA’s industrial stormwater program to assist facilities in managing their stormwater discharges. The industrial stormwater fact sheet series is used by a variety of other stakeholders, including facilities covered under state industrial stormwater permits and other industry groups.

Since industries and stormwater control measures may evolve over time, EPA is undertaking an effort to review and update the fact sheets. In January 2022, the Agency published a Federal Register Notice seeking written comments on the fact sheets. EPA received many valuable comments, as well as input that highlighted areas in need of further clarification and interest in continuing the dialogue with EPA on these resources. In response to this request, the Agency will be hosting a series of public meetings focused on certain industrial sectors to hear more about stakeholders’ individual real-life experiences with industrial stormwater management. Through these meetings, EPA would also like to engage those stakeholders who may not have had the chance to submit comments to attend and share their thoughts.

 EPA is particularly focused on hearing stakeholder’s input on: common activities, pollutant sources, and associated pollutants at facilities in these sectors; and stormwater control measures or best management practices, including source control and good housekeeping/pollution prevention measures for potential pollutant sources at facilities in the sector.

Environmental, Social, and
Governance Issues:
A Business Imperative

October 11, 2022
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. (EDT)

REGISTER NOW

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance is more than an aspiration, and realizing it in real time is not easy. A well-designed ESG strategy can achieve meaningful improvements in corporate performance and provide real value to stakeholders through specific commitments to corporate responsibility. Any such approach, however, must be measurable, transparent, and accountable. Join experts from FTI Consulting, Christine DiBartolo and Ken Ditzel, and Lynn L. Bergeson, for a Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) sponsored webinar, “Environmental, Social, and Governance Issues: A Business Imperative.”

Topics Covered:

  • Undertaking an ESG assessment — conducting an assessment of supply chain realities is key to a successful ESG program;
  • Building an effective ESG program — learning the essential elements and how to use them will help to implement a well-designed ESG program; and
  • Building credible sustainability reporting systems — developing data-driven systems capable of delivering credible ESG disclosures takes careful analysis and planning and must be communicated clearly and effectively.

Beltway Buzz – Ogletree Deakins

OSHA Broadens Criteria for “Severe Violators.” On September 15, 2022, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced updates to its Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP) to “broaden the program’s scope with the possibility that additional industries will fall within its parameters.” According to OSHA’s announcement, the SVEP focuses “enforcement and inspection resources on employers who either willfully or repeatedly violate federal health and safety laws or demonstrate a refusal to correct previous violations.” OSHA also maintains a public inspection list of employers that are included in the program. The expanded SVEP criteria now includes violations of all OSHA hazards and standards. (The previous criteria were limited to incidents involving fatalities, multiple hospitalizations, etc.) According to a blog post by Assistant Secretary of Labor Douglas L. Parker, “Employers will be placed in the program if OSHA finds at least two willful or repeated violations or issues failure-to-abate notices based on the presence of high gravity serious violations.” The changes are effective immediately. David B. Walston and Lauren E. Lenhart have the details.

FTC Outlines Gig Work Enforcement. The Buzz previously discussed the July 19, 2022, memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Following on the MOU, on September 15, 2022, the FTC issued its “Policy Statement on Enforcement Related to Gig Work.” According to the statement, “The Commission will use the full portfolio of laws it enforces to prevent unfair, deceptive, anticompetitive, and otherwise unlawful practices affecting gig workers.” The statement outlines particular ways that the FTC could enforce its laws and regulations relating to gig work, such as by combating “deceptive earnings claims and opaque compensation criteria,” scrutinizing noncompete agreements, and ensuring that algorithmic tools are used lawfully.

Vote on Administration Nominees Postponed. The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions was scheduled to vote this week on the nominations of Karla Gilbride to be general counsel of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Jessica Looman to be administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. That vote has been rescheduled for next week. The delayed vote is an example of the challenge the Biden administration has in moving its nominees through an evenly divided Senate.

EEOC Holds Meeting on Enforcement Priorities. On September 22, 2022, the EEOC held a public meeting on “Shaping the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Priorities.” The meeting was the third in a series of sessions designed to gather feedback from stakeholders to inform the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan (SEP) for fiscal years 2022–2026. According to an agency announcement, “The SEP will set forth long term priorities for the federal civil rights agency.”

Congress Wants Report on Immigrant Employment Opportunities. The Buzz hopes you all find someone who loves you as much as the U.S. Congress loves reports and studies. This week, Congress passed the Bridging the Gap for New Americans Act (S. 3157), which would require the secretary of labor to “conduct a study of the factors affecting employment opportunities in the United States for applicable immigrants and refugees who have professional credentials that were obtained in a country other than the United States.” The legislation would require the secretary of labor to complete a report within eighteen months that also includes “policy recommendations for better enabling applicable immigrants and refugees who have professional experience and qualifications obtained outside of the United States to obtain skill-appropriate employment in the United States.” President Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill.
