Congratulations to the Dalton Scholarship Winner!

The winner if this year’s Dalton memorial Scholarship is Emily Fortier, daughter of long time member Alain Fortier.  Emily graduated from the University of Mississippi this May with a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology and plans to pursue a Master’s degree in public health concentrating in global health and epidemiology.  She received a glowing recommendation from one of her professors. We wish her successes in her continuing academic pursuits.

As always, the candidates for the Dalton Scholarship are chosen from applications and teacher recommendations that completely mask their names, the names of the chapter member and even their gender.  Again, congratulations to Emily.

The Tom Dalton Memorial Scholarship is given to a full time student pursuing a college or graduate degree. Applicants must be a family member of a New Jersey AHMP member in good standing.

Membership Update

Parker Trail Maintenance

AHMP-NJ members met up at High Point State Park on October 14th to clean-up part of the Parker Loop.  The full loop is an 11.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Montague, NJ.  Our team concentrated on about 1 mile of the trail.

We successfully cleared the trail of undergrowth and fallen logs and timber.  Along the way, we found some wildlife and collected 2 bags of garbage.  We accomplished the clean-up in around 4 ½ hours and had an exciting, entertaining and productive morning.

What are Hazardous Materials?

According to the IHMM, a hazardous material is any item or agent (biological, chemical, physical) which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals, or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors.

What is a “Hazardous Materials Professional”

Hazardous materials professionals are responsible for and properly qualified to manage such materials. This includes managing and/or advising other managers on such items at any point in their life-cycle, from process planning and development of new products; through manufacture, distribution and use; to disposal, cleanup and remediation.

Hazmat Professionals work for a variety of employers and in many different roles. Some of us work for governmental agencies, setting and enforcing standards. Some work for businesses, managing and assuring compliance, worker safety and health, environmental protection, hazmat security and sustainability in our particular operations. Some of us work in advocacy and education.

We are chemists, geologists, physicists, and engineers. We're managers, policy specialists, inspectors and investigators, emergency responders, and more.

Regardless of our employment or expertise, we share the common goal of keeping people and our planet safe and healthy; for current generations as well as those yet to come.

If you think this describes you, please join us!
