Education and outreach

The HMMS conducts education and outreach activities, to educate members of the regulated community and the general public, about how to protect workers, the public and the environment, and about environmental laws and regulations. The HMMS also conducts enforcement activities, including issuing notices of violation and referring cases to the Office of the District Attorney, for violations of environmental laws and regulations.


North & South County Workshops

The Hazardous Materials Management Service sponsors two education and outreach workshops per year. In the fall, we host a north County workshop tailored to address the needs of hazardous materials handling and hazardous waste generating businesses. In the spring, our second workshop in the south County, expands that knowledge base to include issues related to the agricultural industry.

Keep an eye out for our second workshop of the year, tentatively scheduled for September (North County).
