Membership Update

We had great weather for our spring Raritan River Cleanup day. A few of our members who participated show some of what they were able to fish from the river!

Our new slate of officers were sworn in during the December Holiday meeting.

The meeting also included two interesting topics. 

Blaine Rothauser, Senior Natural Resource Manager, GZA Environmental Inc. presented a discussion on the Biodiversity in New Jersey and amazed everyone with his photography of "NJ's Best Kept Secrets".





Ron Kurtz, CHMM, CSP, former Chapter President, and current AHMP Secretary provided an update on AHMP National's organization and transition planning.

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!
