The London Branch meetings will begin at 1730, for a 1800 start.
As with all SaRS branches, the branch covers a wide range of industries and organisations which include marine classification, railway design, assurance and operators.
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.
Each year the branch organises a number of evening lectures. 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.
If you wish to be included in the London Branch distribution list please e-mail the branch co-ordinator and we will arrange for your to receive information from the branch.
