Lead EHS Consultant Bringing Decades of Technical Expertise to the Team
Shirley Parsons would like to welcome Tony Militello into our North American Project Services division! Tony has joined the team as a Lead EHS Consultant with the remit of providing expert guidance and tailored EHS consulting solutions to our clients.
Tony will be leveraging over 25 years of technical EHS expertise and insights, which he gained during his service in key EHS leadership positions within the United States Department of the Navy, General Services Administration and The Boeing Company.
Now a registered Professional Engineer (PE) and Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Tony started his career as a fire protection engineer and has helped ensure the protection of people and property through the facility and infrastructure lifecycle. His decade of engineering experience was evenly divided between the Washington, D.C. metropolitan military installations and the U.S. and NATO nation facilities in Europe, Northern Africa and Southwest Asia.
During his time with Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Tony led a team of 125 EHS professionals that were responsible for the safety of 19,000 employees working across $11B of annual global contracts. Tony completed his federal civil service as the most-senior Occupational Safety & Health professional within the US Dept. of the Navy, advocating for a workforce of 800,000 military and civilian personnel, and operating as a key advisor to the Office of the Secretary of the Navy. In these roles Tony developed, audited, and matured safety management systems, led and supported highly technical mishap investigations, conducted programmatic gap analyses, developed programmatic documentation and served as the owner’s representative overseeing in-house and contractor compliance and performance.
Tony worked for 18 months as a Director of EHS at Boeing, leading a team of 80 EHS professionals that were responsible for the health and safety of tens of thousands of skilled workers who manufacture, paint, store, and deliver hundreds of 737-MAX and other commercial aircraft. He infused best practices and global trends learned from collaboration with international leaders into initiatives consistent with the long-term interests of organizational risk reduction, including: developing a comprehensive plan and investment strategy to reduce ergonomic injuries, creating Life Saving Rules, designing real-time program performance dashboards, and strengthening overall assurance program to clearly articulate corporate risk profiles.
Tony is embedded within the EHS community and is an active member of multiple industry groups, including National Safety Council, American Society of Safety Professionals, Associated General Contractors of America and Board of Certified Safety Professionals Foundation.
