IHMM Awards 15,000th CHMM Credential

The Institute of Hazardous Materials Management announced Tuesday that Erik P. Delaney, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, has become the industry's 15,000th individual to earn the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM) credential. According to IHMM, the CHMM certification recognizes environmental, health, safety, and security professionals who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge, expertise, and excellence in their field of work, a commitment to public safety and the environment, and a dedication to the highest professional and ethical standards.

"First and foremost, earning the CHMM certification is really a great honor when you consider the exclusivity of the certification and the company that I am now in also includes Lisa Jackson, the current Administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency," Delaney said, upon being told of his milestone certification. "I sought the CHMM certification to both demonstrate and maintain my professional competency, and I have truly 'stood on the shoulders of giants' getting to where I am!"

Delaney credits his family, senior managers, colleagues, Marine Corps experience, and education with making his achievements possible. Since late 2006, Delaney has served the Marine Corps as a civilian environmental protection specialist at Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, N.C. His specialty fields are EH&S management, hazmat management, EH&S auditing and inspections, and hazmat and safety management. He has trained military personnel, conducted audits and inspections, and supported 25 individual units at MCAS.

"Mr. Delaney's accomplishments, knowledge, and experience truly reflect the excellence embodied by the CHMM credential," said Elizabeth Pfeiffer, chair of the IHMM Board of Directors and environmental compliance officer with BMW of North America. "He has distinguished himself by the breadth and depth of his knowledge regarding the management of hazardous materials, and through the professionalism he exhibits in dealing with the public, his co-workers, and other industry professionals."

IHMM is a nonprofit organization that administers the credentials recognizing professionals in the government, private, and corporate sectors who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge, expertise, and excellence in the management of hazardous materials. Now in its 25th year, the organization also administers the Certified Hazardous Materials Practitioner (CHMP) credential and the Hazardous Materials Manager-in-Training (HMMT) program.
