What we do

Each year the branch organises a number of evening lectures, most of which are also broadcast as live webinars. As with all SaRS branches, the branch covers a wide range of industries and organisations which include marine classification, railway design, assurance and operators. 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.
