HPM* Inventory Specialist. URS Corporation. Manassas, VA. 2005 – 2006. [at MICRON TECHNOLOGY, INC.]
*Hazardous production material (HPM) is a term used within the semiconductor and microelectronics manufacturing industry to refer to any material that has a degree-of-hazard rating of 3 or 4 (the highest ratings) according to the NFPA 704 standard.
HPMs may be rated as hazardous according to their flammability, instability, water reactivity, or health effects, and they refer to materials in solid, liquid, or gaseous form. Although the word “production” is used in the term, HPMs also refer to materials used as part of research and laboratory processes, not just production lines, as long as the end product of that work is the production of a non-hazardous material.
The central purposes of the HPM classification are to ensure the safe storage, communication, and handling of HPMs within a given work environment.
Responsibilities: (1) Manage, expedite and coordinate critical vendor accounts and deliverables in national and international marketplace within tight production deadlines using proprietary software, spreadsheets, and proposals/reports for documentation, and (2) Maintain, monitor and manage critical Life Safety Systems inventory, parts and materials, as well as performing routine safety inspections according to electronically generated work orders.
