Research shows that there is a very strong correlation between safety and the level of collaboration you have within your teams. No matter what organizations you are a part of, or what initiative or project you endeavor to complete, collaboration and safety go hand in hand. This session will share four specific tips for improving your team collaboration. We will use San Francisco International Airport (SFO) as an example of an organization fully committed to both collaboration and safety. We hope the audience will get a deeper understanding of how to collaborate in the interest of safety. Sue Dyer, MBA, MPF, MDRF is president of OrgMetrics LLC, a partnering facilitation firm dedicated to helping construction organizations and project teams develop collaborative cultures. Sue has become the thought leader on collaboration in construction. She has worked for over 30 years to perfect the model of structured Collaborative Partnering and her One Team System. Sue has been leading the Partnering Program at SFO for the past 24 years.

Proposed Amendments to Chapter Bylaws
Posted - Jan 05, 2018

This past August, ASSE members made the historic decision to change the organization’s name to the American Society of Safety Professionals.

ASSE members voted to amend Society bylaws to reflect the new name. As a separately incorporated entity, our chapter needs to hold a separate chapter member vote to change the name in our bylaws, as well.

To learn more about these proposed changes:

We will hold a member vote on these proposed changes at an upcoming meeting of the chapter.
