October Networking Tour – De Young Museum Behind-The-Scene Tour with Al Barna

De Young Museum, located in Golden Gate Park, is one of the preeminent fine arts museum in San Francisco. It is a state-of-the -art facility that integrates art, architecture, and natural landscape in one multi-faceted public space that inspire audiences from around the world. We are very fortunate to get an opportunity to go on a behind-the-scene tour of this incredible space  with Al Barna, the Occupational Health and Safety Officer at the De Young.

Al has been the Occupational, Health and Safety Officer at the De Young since 1992. In addition to his position at the De Young Museum, he is also a renown fine arts photographer who has shown his work at the de Young as well. He is also the co-author of the SF Neon Book about preservations of Neon signs in San Francisco.

After the tour, we’ll be stopping by the award-winning craft brewery, Social Kitchen and Brewery, for cold one. Located just a few blocks away from the De Young, this brewery is known for its brew and contemporary comfort food.

Come join the ASSP-SF Chapter for a tour of this famous San Francisco institution. We look forward to grabbing a cold one after to get to know you better.

Wednesday, October 16th webinar, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PDT

Register now. Are We Speaking the Same Language? Multicultural Considerations With Our Safety Communications and Initiatives.  Eldeen Pozniak, CRSP, speaker.

With the increase of globalization in the world, cultural diversity or multiculturalism in the workplace has grown as a trend. It is either as a result of immigration or migration, or as a result of expanding organizational reach, as we are becoming an increasingly global community, we will come across people from different cultures, either when working abroad or at home. It is important to look at how we plan and develop our program inclusions, communications and training with considerations for multicultural influence. Having cultural intelligence is important to the success of your safety systems.

This webinar will give some insight to cultural differences that exist, explore the concept of cultural intelligence and demonstrate the application of 5 cultural scales to be considered.
