Hazardous Management Services, Inc.Since 1984
The HMS, Inc. Story
Hazard Management Services, Inc. (HMS) has been in operation since its establishment by founders Jim & Barbara Sharp in 1984. While working for Cal/OSHA’s Consultation branch in the early 1980’s, Jim saw the need to help school districts and other building owners with the asbestos-containing materials existing in their buildings. He originally founded HMS, Inc. as an asbestos consulting and removal company, however in 1987, when the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) was issued – splitting the asbestos industry into consultants and contractors – HMS, Inc. chose to pursue consulting only.
HMS, Inc. has since been providing exceptional environmental, industrial hygiene, indoor air quality, workplace health & safety, and regulatory compliance consulting services. They have expanded their clientele to include hospitals, municipal utility districts, universities, refineries, shopping malls, theaters, federal government facilities, large and small private building owners, construction management firms, general contractors, and architects.
Credentials & Specialties
Jim Sharp was one of the initial AHERA instructors at UC Berkeley and helped design the original course materials. Mike Sharp acquired the company in 2001 & served as director of UC Berkeley’s asbestos and lead training programs in 2015 & 2016. Currently HMS, Inc. is accredited by Cal/OSHA, the California Department of Public Health, and the Federal EPA to provide courses for professional asbestos and lead certifications. The team has added expertise in mold, PCBs, and various other hazardous materials to its consulting services since it’s inception. They regularly provide asbestos training at conferences & private classes throughout California, Nevada, New Mexico & occasionally other states & countries. “Our expertise and the special care we take with our clients has lead numerous cities, counties, school and utility districts, and public agencies to choose us as their primary environmental consulting firm,” the team commented.
Establishing A New Look
When the HMS team was ready to refresh their online presence, they called on Rare Digital. We worked hand in hand with their team to redesign their current website – implementing a new layout that was equally informative, responsive & aesthetically pleasing. Individuals & businesses alike can easily learn about the history of HMS, Inc., their current offerings & even register for classes with a quick visit to the site! “Rare Digital made the process of taking our new design and implementing it as painless as it could be,” they noted. We are happy to have created the perfect space for their exceptional business!
