The Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) welcomes Chris Harrison as Editor-in-Chief of the Safety and Reliability Journal, published by Taylor and Francis.
SaRS thanked Nicola Stacey for her time as Editor-in-Chief and for her development of the quarterly peer-reviewed journal, including several special issues.
Chris said, ‘I am looking forward to undertaking the position of Editor-in-Chief for the peer reviewed journal Safety and Reliability.’
Chris sits on the National Council of SaRS.

In 2003 he joined RSSB where he has worked extensively on the Safety Risk Model, the GB rail industry’s network wide model of safety risk. Whilst at RSSB he has undertaken a wide range of projects analysing and modelling risk for problems encompassing the full range of railway technology and operations, particularly in the area of train accident risk.
