Reliability UK comes to Manchester Reliability UK, geared to asset management, maintenance and reliability leaders, takes place in Old Trafford on 26 September 2018.
Mark Gallagher of Formula 1 fame is the keynote speaker. The full technical agenda will address maintenance and reliability topics, including big data analysis; vibration, thermal and ultrasound monitoring; laser alignment and best practice lubrication. Speakers will also explore reliability from the perspectives of the team and human elements, Lean, business performance, health & safety and CSR.

The event offer ample opportunities to network with industry peers during the optional tour of Old Trafford stadium and to showcase your driving skills with a simulated F1 experience. Meanwhile, an exhibition area will be dedicated to suppliers, showcasing their latest products and services, designed to help you optimise asset lifetime and uptime. See

ALARP 2018: Risk Management for Engineering
18 September 2018, Birmingham

It is critical in the UK for the engineering industry to keep risk ‘As Low As Reasonably Practicable’, especially given the risks that can be posed by mechanical engineering components across sectors. Against this backdrop, don’t miss the opportunity to hear thought-leaders from cross-sector major engineering companies and infrastructure projects speak about best practice, regulation, compliance and the latest ALARP applications.

Crane Safety 2018: Raising Safety Standards for Crane and Lifting Operations

12 September 2018, London
Hear insights from leading construction companies about recent projects and practical guidance from the industry regulator. Join breakout sessions that will explore the key issues being faced in major construction projects and identify methods to overcome them. This is a unique opportunity to learn industry best practice and how your organisation can address the challenges of risk and incident reduction, cost savings vs maintenance and compliance with safety legislation.

Simulation and Modelling 2018
18-19 September 2018, Birmingham
Simulation and Modelling 2018 will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the latest developments being made with computer aided and virtual engineering. Explore the advances being made with integration, optimisation and validation from design stage right through to manufacturing to reduce cost, enhance safety and increase performance.

Nuclear Materials: Avoiding Structural Integrity Failures
3 October 2018, Manchester United Football Ground, Manchester, UK
This one-day seminar sets out to discuss in-operation materials challenges experienced by the current UK generating fleet and how to effectively manage them. Gain key insights into the best ways to assess and investigate problems and take home effective solutions to prevent accidents throughout plants’ life-cycle.

Nuclear Lifting 2018
Manchester United Football Ground, Manchester, UK
Discover engineering solutions to the technical and environmental challenges facing those conducting high risk lifting at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ 7th Nuclear Lifting Seminar – the only event of its kind dedicated to lifting projects in the nuclear industry. Attend this event to explore long term strategies, unique safety cases and cost-effective design that meet regulated standards. Furthermore, understand how best to conduct complex and high risk lifts on decommissioning, operational and new build nuclear sites.

Steam Turbine and Generator User Group 2019
13-14 March 2019, Manchester United Football Ground, Manchester, UK
Organised by engineers representing the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the annual Steam Turbine and Generator User Group in March offers attendees two days of high level technical content and knowledge sharing to support all engineers involved with steam turbine and generator assets.

SSCS 2018: System Safety and Cyber Security

29 – 31 October 2018 | IET London: Savoy Place

Call for Contributions deadline: 15 June 2018

The call for contributions is open until 15 June, and we are seeking contributions on these key themes:

  • Integrating safety and cyber security
  • Vulnerabilities, threats and solutions to cyber security in safety-critical systems
  • The human factors of cyber security and safety
  • Interactions between safety and cyber security systems

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences organises the 3rd edition of the International Cross-industry Safety Conference (ICSC) together with the 6th edition of the European STAMP Workshop & Conference (ESWC), both events dedicated to practical and theoretical aspects of safety. The events will take place in Amsterdam, 31 October (workshop/tutorials) and 1-2 November (presentations and plenary discussions) and will offer professionals and researchers a platform to disseminate and share knowledge and experience about safety within and between industry and academia. At the end of this message, I describe the scope of the ICSC and ESWC briefly.

At this stage, we are looking for practitioners and researchers/academics who want to share their relevant knowledge, experience, work and research through various types of contributions (oral presentations, delivery of tutorials/workshops, posters and full papers).  Therefore, I cordially invite you to contribute to the continuity and success of these events by considering to submit a proposal and spread the word across your relevant network. We are convinced that there are much experience and knowledge that is of merit and importance to be communicated and exchanged. The respective weblinks are as follows:


For all industry sectors safety is one of the main focal points. Organizations have recognised that safety improvements contribute to the achievement of broader business goals. The ICSC is a unique opportunity to bring together the various industry sectors and academia. The event aims to function as a platform for disseminating and sharing knowledge and experience about safety and intends to grow further and become a hub for discussing current and future safety challenges and ways to deal with those.


Traditional system safety approaches are being challenged by the introduction of new technology and the increasing complexity of the systems we design, manufacture and operate. STAMP and its associated tools deal with the complexity of systems and provide systematic ways to analyse and assess existing and conceptual systems proactively or detect and illustrate deficiencies revealed through investigations. The ESWC brings together researchers and practitioners who use or want to get familiar with, STAMP that is widely used in different sectors such as space, aviation, healthcare, defence, nuclear, railways, infrastructure and automotive
