About Us

ESReDA is a European Association provides a forum for the exchange of information, data and current research in Safety and Reliability and a focus for specialist expertise. The Safety and Reliability of processes and products are topics which are the focus of increasing interest Europe wide. Safety and Reliability Engineering is viewed as being an important component in the design of a system. However the discipline and its tools and methods are still evolving and expertise and knowledge dispersed throughout Europe. There is a need to pool the resources and knowledge within Europe and ESReDA provides the means to achieve this.

Upcoming Events

50th ESReDA Seminar on 25 years of ESReDA Seminars:

This is the 50th ESReDA seminar on RAMS related topic. As it conducts 2 seminars per year, it implies it has conducted seminars for 25 years. World has changed a lot in the past 25 years. It is an exceptional opportunity to review the status of reliability and safety engineering disciplines by comparing the past learnings to today ones  in order to predict the trends of the future.

49th ESReDA Seminar

Several research projects and programs on system safety engineering and Quantitative Risk Analysis in the last 40 years offered very strong evidence of the crucial role that human and organizational factors (HOFs) play in major accidents. According to this increasing concern toward the relevance of HOFs in limiting safety performance of complex socio-technical systems, considerable research effort has been spent worldwide in the last couple of decades. This resulted in a quite rich literature covering areas from theoretical bases, to accident investigation methods and application to major disasters, to very sophisticated modelling approaches and techniques of HOFs in Quantitative Risk Analysis. Nevertheless, many of the models and applications described in scientific literature demonstrated a limited impact and a lack of integration with the standard procedures and the technical standards applied for the evaluation of the safety of critical equipment and infrastructures, resulting in to non-optimized management of risks.
