The Safety and Reliability Society’s vision is that all its activities support equality, diversity and inclusion and that the Society will:

  • Support a diverse and inclusive profession that inspires, attracts and retains people from different backgrounds, reflecting our increasingly diverse society
    How do we do this? Through a strong Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedure, a published Diversity and Inclusion Policy and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion guidance for employees and members

  • Identify and address any perceived barriers within SaRS
    How do we do this? SaRS provides equality, diversity and inclusion guidance for employees and members including how to identify discrimination and what to do if discriminatory barriers are perceived

  • Tender advice and make recommendations to the Trustee Board concerning Safety and Reliability Society direction and strategy  in relation to diversity and inclusion
    How do we do this? SaRS Trustees, Board and Council meet four-monthly and equality, diversity and inclusion is a fixed agenda item.

  • Develop and support the implementation of the Safety and Reliability Society’s equality, diversity and inclusion programme in line with the Institution’s strategic objectives and develop a diversity and inclusion benchmark and gain best practice
    How do we do this? SaRS has signed up to the Royal Academy of Engineering Progression Framework and committed to benchmarking a progressive implementation of equality, diversity and inclusion objectives

  • Engage and collaborate with other relevant bodies and Engineering Council Licensees as appropriate to share equality, diversity and inclusion knowledge and practice
    How do we do this? SaRS representatives attend Royal Academy of Engineering and Engineering Council meeting with other Licensees to share knowledge and experience about equality, diversity and inclusion and related matters

SaRS works hard to provide equality, diversity and inclusion in all its activities.
