Yale-New Haven gets new hazardous materials coordinator

NEW HAVEN - Yale-New Haven Hospital has hired a hazardous materials coordinator so that it can meet stringent state and federal requirements for the proper handling and disposal of regulated hazardous materials and waste.
Alan Tuchmann, who owned and operated environmental service companies for more than 25 years, had been a consultant before being hired to the newly created position at the hospital, a hospital spokesman said. Tuchmann is responsible for managing the hazardous materials and waste, medical waste, and proper disposal, and for developing a recycling program for the hospital. Tuchmann also is responsible for educating employees about proper handling of materials and waste, including pharmaceuticals, the spokesman said.
A New Haven native who now lives in Cromwell, Tuchmann earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration at Southern Connecticut State University.
