September Technical Meeting

We kicked off the chapter year at our September meeting, hosted by Cal Service Tool in Hayward, CA. Dr. Lambert spoke to us about Fault Tree/Event Tree Analysis and its use investigating NASA Accidents–Apollo 13, The Challenger Space Shuttle, and the Columbia Space Shuttle. You can find a copy of his presentation and more studies on his website: https://ftaassociates.com/

At our September meeting, we also recognized David Paoletta, past president (2017-2018) of the SF Chapter. Under his leadership, the SF Chapter attained Platinum Level Status. The platinum chapter designation is awarded to chapters that meet rigorous standards of excellence as established by ASSP. They are considered to be strong role models for other chapters to emulate.

SF Chapter Starts a WISE Section

We are pleased to announce that the SF Chapter has started a WISE section. For those of you that do not know, WISE stands for Women in Safety Excellence. WISE is a Common Interest Group that advances ASSP members and the safety profession through education, mentorship, networking, collaboration, research and innovation. If you haven’t already done so, please support and join the Women in Safety Excellence member community to connect with like-minded safety professionals and support the inclusion and advancement of women within the safety industry.
