Background

These are the group pages for the SCSC Covid-19 Working Group. The group is involved with discussion, analysis and assistance related to the Coronavirus.

This group meets remotely to see what a systems and assurance view of the situation brings. We will also start a discussion group on the SCSC website for thoughts and ideas related to what we do.

We are all experienced engineers, used to making reasoned arguments about safety. We can use our considerable technical expertise to the problem and find and assure appropriate solutions.

Please keep monitoring the SCSC website (scsc.uk) and the SCSC LinkedIn group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3752227/) for more information.

Systems Safety in the Time of Coronavirus

The Safety Critical Systems Club continues in these difficult times. Events have been postponed but these will be re-instated as soon as possible. The Working Groups, including new groups for Ontology, Multicore and Safety Culture, are using remote working (see scsc.uk/events). The Club web site (scsc.uk) and newsletter continue as normal.

We should consider helping the international effort against the virus. We are all experienced engineers, used to dealing with safety risk. Some of us may be called upon to help with medical equipment such as ventilators. Others may be involved in assessing new safety-related situations. We can bring our expert technical expertise to the problem and find and assure appropriate solutions. 

The SCSC is starting a new Working Group for Covid-19 discussion, analysis and assistance. If you are interested please contact mike.parsons@scsc.uk. This group will meet remotely and see what a systems and assurance view of the situation can bring, and what assistance can be provided to others. We will also start a discussion group on the SCSC website.

Please keep monitoring the SCSC website (scsc.uk). See also: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6645266900311961600
