The SCSC is the UK's professional network for sharing knowledge about system safety. It brings together engineers and specialists from a range of disciplines and industries working in system safety, academics researching the arena of system safety, providers of the tools and services that are needed to develop the systems, and the regulators who oversee safety.
The SCSC provides seminars, workshops and tutorials throughout the year, with a three-day annual Safety-Critical Systems Symposium in February.

The 31st Safety-Critical Systems Symposium was held at the Principal Hotel in York UK from 7th to 9th February.
All of the papers from the proceedings, presentations and videos of the presentations are available now at SCSC.uk/SSS'23.
This was an extremely successful event with over 140 participants, most of whom were attending in person.
…thank you for a fantastic Symposium over the past three days - a really enlightening experience that has prompted a few different ways of thinking.
Thank you both for a very successful conference. Every year is getting better, and better!
It was great to attend a well-run SCSC symposium again.
On International Women's Day (IWD) 2023, the SCSC would like to recognise and say thank you to the women engineers currently or recently involved with the club. They work in a wide range of safety-related sectors, and we are very grateful to them and their employers for their time, expertise and contributions.
We intend to publish a more comprehensive article for INWED (International Women in Engineering Day), which will include historical and international contributors to the field.
International Women's Day is on 8th March. The SCSC is producing a Newsletter article all about women in systems safety, covering both historic contributors and those active in the field today. If you know of anyone who ought to be included please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The article will be published later in the year.
