Todd "Marty" Werdebaugh currently serves as the Chief of Safety & Occupational Health Office in Mobile District. He assists district personnel with a number of safety/ health related issues regarding civil works facilities, in addition to flood risk management, construction activities (including MILCON), and floating plant work. 

Mr. Werdebaugh has spent most of his professional career in the St. Louis, MO area, starting as a Safety & Health Technician at the ConocoPhillips Refinery in Wood River, IL in 2001. He later transitioned to the risk management field as a Loss Control Consultant for an insurance third party administrator company for over five years.

Marty switched from private industry to civil service in 2009, joining USACE in the St. Louis District Safety & Occupational Health Office as an Industrial Hygienist. In 2014, Mr. Werdebaugh departed USACE for the Department of Labor/ OSHA, where he functioned as an Industrial Hygienist for over a year. His role at OSHA was to conduct field inspections at various employer facilities within the eastern half of Missouri. He returned at the end of the year to serve as the SOH Manager for St. Louis District for the next three years.  

Marty is originally from Oakland, MD.  He has a bachelor’s of science in occupational safety & health, as well as a master’s of science degree in industrial hygiene. Both were completed at Murray State University in western Kentucky. Mr. Werdebaugh currently holds professional certifications as a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and Project Management Professional (PMP), and is a certified OSHA outreach trainer in construction safety.  He has been a part of the Corps of Engineers Safety & Occupational Health Management System (CESOHMS) Working Group, as well as several other CoP initiatives. 

He has been married to his wife Linda (also a USACE employee in the Emergency Operations Community of Practice) since 2006. While they do not have any children, their dog Saige keeps them plenty busy. His hobbies include camping, boating, hanging out at the beach, and most sporting events.
