The awareness induction for new Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and Environment Agency inspectors covers the whole of the nuclear industry.
The majority of the week-long syllabus is delivered by Sellafield Ltd personnel, alongside input from across the NDA estate.
ONR have submitted the course to the IChemE Global Awards and it has been shortlisted in the teams and training categories.
The entry was focused on the team element and the final will be a virtual event in November.
Elisabeth Cooke, Chief Process Engineer, Sellafield Ltd said:
The work we did on the course has already been acknowledged by the ONR and won a Sellafield Ltd employee team award.
I’m delighted that the entry has been shortlisted in both categories as it provides recognition to the whole team (from across the UK Nuclear sector) of their efforts.
The contributors to this course have demonstrated all of our expected behaviours whilst doing their bit to create a safe environment for future generations. I’m very proud to have been associated with such a dedicated group of nuclear professionals.
John O’Brien, Head of Engineering Design, Sellafield Ltd added:
This team provided significant input and help with the ONR’s training programme for their inspectors to raise their knowledge of the Sellafield site, the hazards it presents, and the engineering/technology deployed to keep us all safe.
I’m delighted to hear the entry has been shortlisted.
