Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS)


Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS)

The Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) was formed in the UK in 1980, and now has approximately 600 members in the UK, mainland Europe, the Middle East, USA and the Asia Pacific region. The address of the Society is Clayton House, 59 Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 2AQ.

The Society also has an Affiliate membership scheme for academic institutions, industrial companies, and other organisations with interests in safety and reliability and engineering risk management and there are currently around 40 such affiliate members.

Membership of the Society provides a recognised professional status for safety, reliability and engineering risk management practitioners, at all ages and levels of experience. Through its publications and meetings the Society keeps its members up to date on the latest developments in the field of safety engineering, both in the UK and internationally. It also provides a mechanism to comment upon and input to developing codes and standards.

Through its external representation, the Society works to maintain and improve the status and reputation of safety, reliability and engineering risk management practitioners. It provides a forum for technical discussion and debate, cross fertilisation of ideas, and propagation of best practice amongst its members. The Society is a Professional Affiliate of the Engineering Council UK and a route to registration is available for members.
