Help us receive the Platinum Level Chapter award at Safety 2017 Chapter Awards Luncheon!
Posted - Jun 09, 2017

Our chapter was awarded Platinum Level Chapter for the 2015-2016 year, the highest level of accomplishment for a chapter, thanks to many dedicated San Francisco Chapter volunteers. Only 22 chapters out of 153 in the world achieved Platinum status. Platinum-Level chapters meet the most rigorous standard of excellence and are considered to be strong role models for other chapters to emulate.
Chapter awards will be given out at the Chapter Recognition Luncheon on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, at the Four Seasons 2/3 room in the Colorado Convention Center.

Fun Had by All at May Meeting @ 21st Amendment Brewery!
Posted - Jun 05, 2017

ASSE SF Chapter Members at 21st Amendment Brewery in San Leandro, CA.

The guided tour of 21st Amendment Brewery in San Leandro was interesting and informative – breweries face many safety issues including: confined space, machine guarding, material handling, & slip and falls.  It was also a fun way to socialize and network with other safety professionals in the area while enjoying a sampler of their beers.  The executive committee is already planning some fun monthly meetings for the new chapter year next fall.  If you have an idea and contacts for a good meeting/tour, please contact Jonathan Scruggs, our newly elected VP Programs, jonathan.scruggs@clorox.com or Tami Galt, President at president@sanfrancisco.asse.org .
