SaRS London Branch events are currently only online meetings and webinars due to the Coronavirus restrictions. We hope to be able to present our normal evening presentation/networking events again later in the year.
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.
SaRS London Branch covers London and surrounding area with Central London at its heart and providing the location of many of the events organised by the branch. 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.
The branch events calendar year runs from September to June each year.
The Value of Safety Culture & Branch AGM
Our annual AGM will be held online due to current restrictions on Wednesday, 19th May 2021 at 5:00pm, ahead of our evening event. To register, click here. All registrants will receive a link to join the meeting shortly before the call.
Poor safety culture has contributed to many major incidents, and can be just as influential on safety outcomes as an organisation’s safety management system. Using examples from different sectors, this webinar, to be held at 6:00pm, will explore the value of a safety culture as an enabler to successful safety and risk management, and the extent to which safety culture can be assessed.
The webinar will be presented by Professor Patrick Hudson, Diane Chadwick-Jones, and Hesam Mehrabi Mahani.
Future events to watch out for:
- Tour of Air Accident Investigation Branch’s facilities in (AAIB) in Farnborough – postponed due to current pandemic – new date to be announced
- Accident Investigations Across Industries – What Can/Did We Learn
- Career Paths in Safety and Reliability
- Low Carbon
Details will be on our events page once they are confirmed.

This webinar covered what has happened since the 1999 Mont Blanc road tunnel fire incident and how tunnel safety is now assessed and managed.
This event explored how risk predictions in the oil and gas industries can be refined to address causes of hazardous releases without making QRA models unduly complex, and how the resulting information can be used to guide other methods such as HAZOP and Bowtie towards the most significant causes of release and methods to mitigate them.
This event introduced the work from the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) in using Bayesian Mathematics for forecasting reliability for the life of a product. This work has enabled the further development in AWE’s capability for managing uncertainty and quantifying potential risks in engineered components.
This was an event allowing our audience to hear from the experts on how smart motorways work, how safety is managed on Highways England’s projects, what the review into motorway safety found, and the proposed action plan.
An event which introduced the basic principles of Safety-II and the Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) as the most widely used Safety-II method, including application of FRAM in the maritime and healthcare sectors.
