About the Safety and Reliability Group

The Safety and Reliability Group promotes the development of safety and reliability requirements for products, such as equipment, systems or services.

The group provides best practice guides and information to engineers associated with designing, manufacturing, operating or maintaining products.

It aims to educate engineers working in the process, manufacturing, utility and public service industries. The group works across all industry sectors covering safety regulations, reliability and performance, assessment and maintenance and human factors.

The Board includes four working groups:

The Safety and Reliability Group represents us on the Hazards Forum which provides an interdisciplinary focus for the study of disasters. It also increases the public understanding of risk, while continuing to work on the assessment of hazardous events, dissemination of lessons learned and the promotion of risk reduction strategies.
