Presidents Message

Our Mission Welcome to the Central Ohio Certified Hazardous Materials Managers (COCHMM) organization, a chapter of the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals. Our members are professionals with diverse backgrounds in the environmental and occupational safety fields. We work in industry, consulting, and government, and are individuals interested in continuing education, professional development and networking opportunities. We hold membership meetings with engaging speakers and host educational events throughout the year with the intent of helping our members enhance their professional experience. Please visit the Events tab to learn more about upcoming meetings or to review previous presentations.

If you are not a member we encourage you to join. The membership fee is modest, and your involvement can enhance your career and the COCHMM organization. If you are interested in becoming a CHMM, we will be offering the Essentials of Hazardous Materials Management course in May. This course will assist you in preparing for the CHMM exam, but also provides a broad overview of various EPA, OSHA and DOT hazardous materials regulations.

On behalf of the 2015 Board of Directors and COCHMM, we look forward to meeting you at one of our events.

Jeff Bates, Ph.D.
President, COCHMM
