Newsletter

The club has published its newsletter Safety Systems three times a year since 1991.
The newsletter is distributed to paid-up members and can be made available in electronic form for inclusion on corporate members' intranet sites.

An archive of Newsletters since January 1998 is available on this page. Note this does not include the latest three issues which are only available to Club members.

Symposium proceedings

The proceedings of the annual symposium, held each February since 1993, are published in book form. Copies can be purchased from the publisher and for SSS'13 and later are available on Amazon.
Details of all Symposium proceedings are available on this page. A selection of sample papers are available from recent publications.
