February USS Hornet Tour

On Tuesday, February 12th the San Francisco Chapter hosted a private tour of the USS Hornet. The tour was led by resident docent Thomas Burnt who served in the United States Airforce. Thomas provided a historical background about the USS Hornet and focused on safety related items on the ship. He also discussed many of the challenges that the sailors faced while manning the ship. Below are some photos from our tour!

Thank you to those who made it out on the gloomy day, we hope to see you at our next event in April!

Tawnee is nearing completion of the Occupational Safety and Health degree at Las Positas College and was excited to be awarded the Chapter’s scholarship. She is looking forward to learning more about safety and health as she completes her Associates in Science degree. Tawnee aspires to a career as an Operator or Safety professional at a refinery following completion of her degree. She believes the knowledge gained from the Occupational Safety and Health program at Las Positas will help her succeed in any position she may have at a refinery. The courses have provided her a much better understanding of safety and health issues and what make safety and health programs successful.
