The Hazardous Materials Program is responsible for the removal, transportation, segregation, consolidation and storage of potentially hazardous materials and chemicals in compliance with state and federal regulations.
The Hazardous Material Program handles a vast array of hazardous materials but specializes in dealing with asbestos, lead, mercury contaminated material, and PCB containing caulk. The HMP also provides trained personnel for sterilization of the University’s BSL-3 labs using vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP). Below is a breakout of some of what we do:
HMP is composed of an abatement group and a consultation group. We handle all size of projects ranging from small clean ups to $750,000 abatement jobs. We have a crew of 8-10 abatement workers and six in-house consultants. If a job is too large for us to handle in-house we will bid it out to a contractor and manage the project. HMP also strives to have annual contracts for abatement contractors and environmental consultants so that we can always respond in a timely manner.
