IHMM RECENT NEWS

INSIDE IHMM

First Student CHMMs Become CHMMs

IHMM initiated a Student CHMM credential a few years ago, affording college students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to learn about professional credentials and develop their skills to eventually become CHMMs. IHMM is pleased to announce the first two Student CHMMs who have passed their CHMM examinations and become CHMMs! Learn more about Ian James Marano and Mark Gregory below. Congratulations to them both.

Ian James Marano, CHMM

I have recently accepted an offer of employment at one the National Laboratories (Fermilab) in Batavia, IL. I am an EHS Specialist III/Trainer.  My career path into EHS evolved from over 25-years of military service in the Army Reserves, 20+years as a career Indianapolis Fire Depart (IFD) Firefighter/Paramedic/Public Safety Diver/HAZMAT Technician.

I retired from IFD and relocated to Chicago whereby I completed my educational pursuits with five Associate degrees (General Studies, Environmental Health & Safety, Fire Science, Paramedic Science, and Homeland Security) and Bachelor’s of Science in Occupational Safety & Health. Since retirement, I was fortunate to get an EHS internship at AbbVie (bio pharmaceutical), and work my way through several EHS positions. My career path adjusted from employer to employer focusing on my strengths and continued interests; generally helping to make the world a better place.

In summary, I transitioned as an accomplished public safety retiree into the EHS profession; capitalizing upon my experience, education, and knowledge in an all-hazards. I recognized the IHMM-CHMM early in my new career path and made the CHMM a key objective in my goal to become a true EHS professional.

Mark Gregory, CHMM

At the time I was a Student CHMM I had gone back to school to get another degree (Bachelors in Environmental Management).  But as you can see I may be a bit older than your average student LOL.  Just a little background, I have 35 years of experience in the HSE field and I am currently employed as a Sr. Manager in the Corporate Health, Safety, Security, & Environmental (HSSE) group for KBR, Inc.  I specialize in Industrial Hygiene and Environmental Science helping to guide KBR’s industry leading Zero Harm safety culture.

KBR, Inc. (formerly Kellogg Brown & Root) is a U.S. based company operating in the fields of science, technology and engineering.  We deliver science, technology and engineering solutions to governments and companies around the world. KBR employs approximately 33,000 people performing diverse, complex and mission-critical roles in 33 countries.

IHMM GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS

Beltway Buzz – Ogletree Deakins

DOL Proposes Changes to Overtime Regulations. On August 30, 2023, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced that it would issue a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend the regulations implementing the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The effort represents another swing of the partisan pendulum, as this is the third administration in a row to propose changes to these regulations. In 2016, the Obama administration increased the salary basis threshold to $47,476 per year, but the regulation was enjoined and then struck down by a federal court as contrary to congressional intent. The Trump administration followed with its own overtime rule changes, which set the salary threshold at the current $35,568 per year. This week’s proposal:

  • Sets the salary basis to the 35th percentile of weekly earnings of full-time salaried workers in the lowest-wage census region. This translates to a salary basis of $55,068 per year ($1,059 per week)—a 55 percent increase. However, because this is not a firm numerical figure but is instead based on evolving data, the proposal notes that this threshold level could change, and perhaps climb as high as $60,209 per year ($1,158 per week) in just the first quarter of 2024.
  • Increases the total annual compensation requirement for highly compensated employees from $107,432 per year to $143,988 per year, based on annualized weekly earnings amount of the 85th percentile of full-time salaried workers nationally.
  • Automatically updates the salary basis threshold every three years.

The DOL is not proposing to change the duties test.

Comments are due sixty days after the proposed rule is published in the Federal Register. Any final rule likely will not issue until 2024 and will undoubtedly be subject to multiple legal challenges. Keith E. Kopplin and Lee E. Tankle have the details.

OSHA Looks to Resuscitate Failed “Walkaround” Effort. On August 30, 2023, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration published a  proposed rule, titled, “Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process.” The proposal attempts to codify a controversial interpretation set forth in a 2013 letter that was subsequently withdrawn. Under this week’s proposal, outside third-party employee representatives may accompany OSHA compliance safety and health officers during workplace inspections if they have “relevant knowledge, skills, or experience with hazards or conditions in the workplace or similar workplaces.” According to the proposal, third parties may include a “representative from a worker advocacy group, community organization, or labor union.” Comments are due on October 30, 2023. John D. Surma and Savannah M. Selvaggio have the details.

NLRB Update. So much for a sleepy August at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), as decisions continue to pour out of the agency with the expiration of Member Gwynne Wilcox’s term. Here is the latest:

  • Card checkThomas M. Stanek and Zachary V. Zagger have the details on the Board decision last week that dramatically tilts the workplace representation process in favor of labor unions. The new test requires an employer to recognize a union when presented with authorization cards unless the employer affirmatively asks the Board to conduct a secret-ballot election. If the employer asks for an election and subsequently commits an unfair labor practice, the Board can order the employer to recognize the union. When combined with the return of both “ambush” elections and the “federal employee-handbook police” (as the dissent put it in a 2022 Board decision), it is clear that the new representation process is designed to boost unions’ sagging membership numbers in the wake of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act’s failure in the U.S. Congress.
  • Adverse employment actions and union animus. In a decision released on August 28, 2023, the Board clarified its Wright Line standard for determining whether an adverse employment action was motivated by an employee’s protected activity. In dissent, Member Marvin Kaplan argued that it was unnecessary for the majority to revisit Wright Line, and he noted that “general hostility toward a union is insufficient to demonstrate that employee protected activity was a ‘motivating factor’ in a specific adverse action taken by an employer.”
  • Expanded protected concerted activity. In another case, the Board expanded the definition of “concerted,” indicating that actions by a single employee may be “concerted” when the “employee’s conduct sought to initiate, induce, or prepare for group action, or was related to group action.” Member Kaplan disagreed with the majority’s assertion that “concerted activity can be established by protected activity taken without the requisite intent toward group action.”
  • Wilcox departs, but senator wants assurances. As the Buzz mentioned last week, Gwynne Wilcox ended her term as a member of the NLRB on August 27, 2023. The Board is now down to three members: Chair Lauren McFerran and David Prouty are the remaining Democrats, while Marvin Kaplan continues to serve as the sole Republican. But due to the fact that Wilcox’s renomination has been teed up for a post-Labor Day vote in the U.S. Senate, Senator Bill Cassidy, ranking member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), wants to ensure that Wilcox is no longer on the Board. In a letter dated August 28, 2023, Senator Cassidy wrote to Chair McFerran seeking “assurances the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) has terminated [Wilcox’s] employment appropriately and is following all separation protocols for a federal appointee whose term has expired.” The letter goes on to ask McFerran whether Wilcox has been inappropriately moved to an advisory position at the Board, and whether she still has access to Board facilities, computers, emails systems, and the like. The letter is indicative of the political importance of the Board.

EPA Amending Waters of the United States Rule

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers are amending the “Revised Definition of ‘Waters of the United States’” rule from January 2023 to conform with the Supreme Court decision in its 2023 case, Sackett v. EPA. The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Clean Water Act in Sackett rendered portions of the January 2023 rule invalid. This rule amends portions of the January 2023 rule to make the rule consistent with the Supreme Court’s decision. See fact sheet for more details. Effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

Read the EPA amendments here.

Labor Department Proposes New Overtime Salary Threshold

More than 3 million workers would be newly eligible for overtime pay when they work more than 40 hours a week, under a new proposal from the U.S. Department of Labor. However, the suggested change is likely to face legal challenges.

On August 30, the Biden administration issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking from the Department of Labor to extend overtime pay eligibility to more than 3 million workers.

The initiative comes following a similar attempt by the Obama administration over eight years ago to revise overtime eligibility regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under the new proposal, employers would be required to provide time-and-a-half pay for eligible workers who work beyond 40 hours per week. The previous threshold for this requirement set in 2019 by the Trump administration—$35,568—would be increased to $55,000.

National Preparedness Month and Worker Safety and Health Resources

Following the catastrophic impact of the Maui wildfires and natural disasters that have occurred in other parts of the U.S., we want to remind everyone that September is National Preparedness Month and that OSHA has an Emergency Preparedness and Response webpage that provides information to protect workers responding to hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and other natural disasters.  For you convenience, I’ve attached OSHA’s Worker Safety and Health Resources for Hurricane and Flood Cleanup and Recovery and OSHA’s Fact Sheet:  Keeping Workers Safe During Disaster Cleanup and Recovery (both found on OSHA’s webpage here).  Please note that many of the OSHA materials are available in Spanish, along with a few Public Service Announcements that have been recorded and transcribed.  Please share this information, as appropriate, with your stakeholders, including those who may be cleanup and recovery employers, workers, and volunteers.

For questions about these resources, please contact Christopher Lawver [(202) 693-1985 or [email protected]] or Bill Matarazzo [(202) 693-2160 or [email protected]].

EPA Issues Third TSCA Test Order for PFAS

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on August 15, 2023, that it issued the third Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) test order requiring testing on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) under EPA’s National PFAS Testing Strategy. EPA has ordered the Chemours Company FC LLC, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, and 3M Company to conduct and submit testing on 2,3,3,3-Tetrafluoro-2-(heptafluoropropoxy)propanoyl fluoride (HFPO-DAF), “a substance used as a reactant in organic chemical manufacturing.” EPA states that HFPO-DAF is known to be used to make the chemical hexafluoropropylene oxide dimer acid (HFPO-DA) (Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number® (CAS RN®) 13252-13-6), also known by the trade name GenX. According to EPA, HFPO-DA is used in the production of nonstick coatings, stain repellent, and other consumer and industrial products and was widely used to replace perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). EPA notes that more than one million pounds of HFPO-DAF are manufactured each year, according to TSCA Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule reports. For more information, please read the full memorandum.

Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process Notice of Proposed Rule Making

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today posted for public inspection a  Notice of Proposed Rule Making  (NPRM) on Worker Walkaround Representative Designation  Process, that will officially be published on August 30, 2023, which proposes OSHA to amend its representatives of Employers and Employees regulation to clarify that the representative(s) authorized by employees may be an employee of employer or third party.

OSHA has preliminarily determined that the proposed changes will add OSHA’s workplace inspections by enabling employees to select a representative of their choice to accompany the CSHO during a physical workplace inspection. Employee representative during the inspection is important to ensuring OSHA obtain the necessary information about worksite condition and hazards.

Individuals may submit comments identified by Docket No. OSHA-2023-0008, electronically at https://www.regulations.gov, which is the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal. The deadline for submitting comments is 60 days from the official publication of the Federal Register Notice. For more information, please see  Federal Register Notice  and the OSHA’s New Release.

Industry Lawyers Hope Chevron Rollback Bolsters CERCLA Challenges

Industry lawyers are suggesting that any rollback of the Chevron doctrine as a result of pending Supreme Court litigation could bolster challenges to EPA actions under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), which have long been granted significant deference under the doctrine.

As a result, the lawyers told an Aug. 23 webinar that any rollback of the Chevron doctrine and other high court rulings mark a “sea change” in imposing new limits on EPA authority and improving liable parties’ negotiating leverage in settlement discussions.

Among the items that courts could reconsider, they said, is the constitutionality of the law’s long-time bar on pre-enforcement judicial review of agency cleanup decisions.

“I’m interested in seeing what happens with this because whether there’s a rollback of the Chevron deference doctrine — generally there’s been a really high bar regarding challenges to EPA decisions, and, you know, courts defer to what the EPA decided,” Denise Fellers, partner at the Morgan Lewis law firm, told the webinar, which was hosted by the legal education firm Strafford and titled “Resolving Superfund Liability and Protecting PRP Interests: Settling and Preserving CERCLA Claims.”

If Chevron is “going to go away, I think there’s going to be a lot more challenges” to EPA cleanup decisions, Fellers added.

EPA Finalizes Revised TSCA Rules For PCB Cleanup, Adding RCRA Options

EPA has finalized its rule expanding methods for cleanup and disposal of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), providing authorization to send some PCB waste to landfills subject to Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) standards instead of TSCA-regulated sites along with other changes in how the chemicals must be addressed.

The final rule, published in the Aug. 29 Federal Register, aims to expand available options for extraction of PCB waste and determinative methods used to characterize and verify cleanup of the material under Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulations.

It is broadly in line with a 2021 proposal, but with changes to address industry concerns that the earlier version could have curtailed certain disposal options rather than speed them.

It will take effect Feb. 26, 2024.

EPA says its “expanded set of extraction and determinative methods that can be used to characterize and verify the cleanup of [PCB] waste . . . are expected to greatly reduce the amount of solvent used in PCB extraction processes, thereby conserving resources and reducing waste. In addition, the changes are expected to result in quicker, more efficient, and less costly cleanups, due to greater flexibility in the cleanup and disposal of PCB waste, while still being equally protective of human health and the environment.”

National Environmental Policy Act Implementing Regulations Revisions Phase 2

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is proposing this “Bipartisan Permitting Reform Implementation Rule” to revise its regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), including to implement the Fiscal Responsibility Act’s amendments to NEPA. CEQ proposes the revisions to provide for an effective environmental review process that promotes better decision making; ensure full and fair public involvement; provide for an efficient process and regulatory certainty; and provide for sound decision making grounded in science, including consideration of relevant environmental, climate change, and environmental justice effects. CEQ proposes these changes to better align the provisions with CEQ’s extensive experience implementing NEPA; CEQ’s perspective on how NEPA can best inform agency decision making; longstanding Federal agency experience and practice; NEPA’s statutory text and purpose, including making decisions informed by science; and case law interpreting NEPA’s requirements. CEQ invites comments on the proposed revisions.

EPA Selects Final National Enforcement and Compliance Initiatives

After proposing new National Enforcement and Compliance Initiatives (NECI) in January and considering comments from states, tribes, NGOs and other parties, newly confirmed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enforcement chief David Uhlmann announced Thursday the adoption of three new NECIs and one modified NECI for the 2023-2027 cycle.

The EPA selects NECIs to guide the EPA and delegated states’ deployment of criminal and civil enforcement resources. The initiatives are selected based on the need to address serious and widespread environmental issues and significant violations impacting human health and the environment, particularly in overburdened and vulnerable communities. The agency also considers where federal enforcement authorities, resources, and expertise are needed and ensures the initiatives are consistent with the EPA’s strategic plan.

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 Organizing Broader Government Affairs Activities

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, 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.
The full presentation may be viewed here.

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

Regulatory Updates

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 Recertification Videos

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.

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 365 CHMM applicants IHMM had on June 27, 2023, all 365 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 365 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!

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.
