Hazardous Materials Society

The Hazardous Materials Society was created by the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management as a separate, 501[c][3] non-profit organization with its own Board. No one who participates in any IHMM credential committee also participates in an HMS activity, the two are kept strictly separate as HMS respects the ANSI accredited credentials of IHMM.

HMS is established to provide excellence in education, training, advocacy, information services, meetings and networking in the fields of hazardous materials management, health and safety to raise the level of performance and professionalism among those individuals whose services to their communities create a safer and more sustainable environment.
