PNWC-AHMP is a local chapter of the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals, which supports the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM) credential and other EHS&S credentials, the standards they represent, and the professionals who uphold them. In 2016, we were presented with the 25-Year Milestone Award for our contributions that have had an exceptional impact on the AHMP organization!
Location: Ivar's Salmon House, 401 NE Northlake Way, Seattle
6:00 PM - No Host Social Hour 7:00 PM - Dinner ($35) 7:30 PM - Speaker: Mr. Ray Carveth of Purple Ink Solutions and past president of the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association (NAHMMA). Mr. Carveth will discuss his experience coordinating volunteers involved in responding to the Oso landslide disaster. He will show a real-life example of how the lines of the mission and authority can be challenged and blurred during a disaster. Each disaster encounters unique variables depending on the type of event, its location, and the time of year. For example: Who is allowed in the area? Who will handle hazmat? How has hazmat been affected and changed by the disaster? Are weapons and ammunition hazmat? Those involved in disaster response must be able to adapt and the make the best decisions possible for each situation. Mr. Carveth will offer hints on how to prepare for those challenges.
