HAZARDOUS MATERIALS SERVICE OPERATION MANAGER
at 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne)
Eglin Air Force Base, FL September 2011 – Present
Established the HMSO program for 7th SFG by creating an Issue Point which has the following responsibilities: to receive, store, maintain, issue, track, provide and share knowledge of hazardous materials used by our customers. In this endeavor I administrated the transition to EESOH-MIS from HMMS for logistical tracking and requisition of hazardous materials, management of 105 hazardous waste sites with 95 being unique waste streams; including safety and health metrics for employees and personnel exposed to hazardous materials and waste.
This program requires the unique ability to adhere to regulations required by ARMY, Air Force, and NAVY – due to being an ARMY Special Operations asset hosted on Air Force property, while having a Maritime Operations attachment that falls under NAVY regulations.
Directly filed and petitioned Eglin’s multi-tiered environmental governing body for approval for training operations conducted by 7th SFG.
This operation has never received an infraction, having never failed nine random annual inspections by the Environmental Protection Agency. This operation received best “Issue Point of All” after ESOH-CAMP inspection by the host base – Eglin Air Force Base.
As of February 2020, my program has saved the U.S. Government $1.8 million in material expenses by reusing material, replacing hazardous materials with “green” products, allowing for the reduction of waste.
This position includes the responsibility for training thousands of personnel of best practices within the field of hazardous materials and waste handling, tracking of health and safety, bi-annual employee evaluation, as well as the formidable understanding of program management principles.
