[SCOTTSDALE, AZ] – At the opening ceremony of the 37th Annual SESHA International Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona, EORM’s Executive Vice President, Managing Principal and Co-Founder Andy McIntyre was recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication and contributions to significantly advancing the fields of environmental health and safety in the semiconductor and related high technology industries.

"Through his vast expertise, tireless efforts and deep, life-long commitment to workplace health and safety and the environment, Andy has made a lasting impact not just on the technology industry, but on the lives of millions of people around the globe," observes EORM President, CEO and Co-Founder Glenn Fishler. "This recognition for Lifetime Achievement is truly well-earned and all of us at EORM are extremely proud."

Andy's SESHA involvement dates back to 1982 when he attended his first SSA international conference while supporting the growth of a newly formed SESHA chapter in Southern California. After joining HP's Components Group operations in Silicon Valley in 1984, he became very active in the Northern California Chapter, taking on the role of Regional Director in 1987 and subsequently elected to the Board of Directors in 1989. Andy served on the Board from 1989 to 1996, including a term as President from 1995 to 1996.

He received the SESHA Presidents’ Award in 1999 and was elected in 2001 as a Fellow by Association. SESHA Fellowship Status is given to uniquely qualified individuals who have significantly distinguished themselves in the eyes of the SESHA Board of Directors by academic accomplishments, technical achievement, or meritorious service in the disciplines of environmental health and safety within the semiconductor industry.

Andy has thirty years of experience as an EHS and sustainability professional supporting a range of process intensive industries. Following a decade of experience with Xerox Corporation’s Electronics Division and Hewlett Packard, he co-founded Environmental and Occupational Risk Management, Inc. (EORM®) in 1990. His technical and management consulting experience has focused on assisting hundreds of EORM clients to optimize their environmental, health, safety and sustainability initiatives, in the US and around the world, and he leads EORM’s international Responsible Supply Chain services.

Most recently Andy, together with fellow EORM consultants, has provided leadership and support to the International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative to help develop Semiconductor and Materials International (SEMI®) Guidelines for use of reactive, hazardous, energetics materials in semiconductor R&D and manufacturing processes. The guideline development project builds upon the SEMATECH draft Best Known Methods (BKM) for energetics use, authored in 2013 by McIntyre, Nick Filipp, Ph.D., CIH, and SEMATECH’s Steve Trammell, PE.

Over the last twenty five years, Andy has authored numerous articles and been invited to present at international conferences and symposiums – including many SESHA events – in both North America and Asia. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Toxicology from the University of California, Davis and a Master's Degree in Environmental and Occupational Health/Industrial Hygiene from California State University, Northridge.

SESHA (Semiconductor Environmental Safety and Health Association) is an international organization dedicated to the prevention of workplace injuries and accidents through the sharing of safety and health information and the promotion of technological advances in high technology, safety and health. Since its founding in 1978 as the Semiconductor Safety Association, SESHA has established itself as the premier international organization promoting the effective communication of safety, health and environmental information to the electronics and related high technology industries.
