Understand the hazards associated with the nuclear industry.
Are you an early-career professional in the nuclear industry? Could you or a colleague benefit from a refresher in nuclear safety training? If so, you should probably attend our Fundamentals of Nuclear Safety course.
The Fundamentals of Nuclear Safety is an interactive course which will give you a comprehensive understanding of safety in the nuclear industry from engineering, management, operational, regulatory and theoretical perspectives.
The course draws upon nuclear specific case studies and links the various stages in safety analysis with the requirements of the Office for Nuclear Regulation.
The course includes a formal assessment and delegates who successfully complete the assessment will receive an IChemE pass certificate in the Fundamentals of Nuclear Safety.
Delivered in partnership with IChemE
Who should attend?
Early-career professionals in the nuclear industry. It can also act as a refresher for more experienced practitioners as well as engineers and scientists in other disciplines wishing to enter the nuclear industry.
How will I benefit?
After the course you will be able to:
- Understand the basic science and engineering principles underlying the nuclear fuel cycle and nuclear reactors
- Understand the hazards of the nuclear industry and how the risks can be controlled
- Be aware of and understand the key factors influencing the basis for nuclear safety
- Understand the key nuclear safety requirements at each stage in the life cycle of a nuclear plant from conceptual design through to operation, maintenance and modification
- Understand the importance of safety culture and the consequences of poor nuclear safety
- Understand the ways in which their work depends on the knowledge and expertise of others (ie interdependence and the need for overall organisational nuclear safety management competence) and know how to acquire further knowledge and understanding of nuclear safety management
- Need for understanding of the safety case and how it should be the basis of decisions
- Importance of authority and accountability
- Metrics needed to demonstrate compliance
- Understand the regulatory environment in which they operate
