ILTA Hosts Successful March EHSS Committee Meeting
ILTA's held its annual spring Environment, Health & Safety and Security Committee virtually on March 29-April 1, featuring four days of fantastic discussion on significant matters affecting the tank terminals industry. Nearly 120 members attended the full committee meeting on day one, where they learned about the national and state efforts to ban or limit the use of PFAS chemicals and discuss how the industry should position itself to deal with the potential loss of PFAS-based firefighting foams. The full committee also received a preview of ILTA's new communications toolkit, designed for use by ILTA membership to educate the community and policymakers on the importance of bulk liquid storage.
Over the next three days, the individual committee meetings covered a wide variety of issues, including: the early stages of an ILTA-wide environment, social & governance initiative; OSHA workplace regulations pertaining to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; ILTA's continuing engagement with the U.S. Coast Guard on the coming TWIC Reader rules; and a presentation on CFATS regulations. In total, more than 170 people registered for the multi-day event, making it one of ILTA's most successful EHSS Committee meetings to date. Because ILTA’s conference and trade show is moving to October this year, the next EHSS meeting, usually held in September, will likely be held either in the summer or in late fall.
