Branch information

Each year the branch organises a number of evening lectures, most of which are also broadcast as live webinars. Lectures address topics which are of relevance to Safety and Reliability Professionals and are an excellent method of keeping informed of current developments; additionally the meetings are an ideal networking opportunity.  In addition, the branch promotes a number of events organised by related organisations in the London area which might be of interest to members of the SaRS London Branch community.
