  1. 1. Safety Reviews of Technical System Modifications in the Nuclear Industry

    Author : Thomas Falk; Sven-Ove Hansson; Teemu Reiman; KTH; []
    Keywords : safety; safety review; nuclear; nuclear power plant; process; process improvement; action research; experience feedback;

    Abstract : The function of safety reviews (here understood as expert judgements on proposals for design modifications and redesign of technical systems in commercial Nuclear Power Plants, supported by formalised safety review processes) plays a fundamental role for safety in nuclear installations. The primary aims of the presented case studies includes: critically examining and identifying the main areas for improvement of the existing technical safety review process as it is conducted at a Swedish nuclear power plant, developing a new process, and evaluating whether any improvements were accomplished.

  2. 2. Studies of safety and critical work situations in nuclear power plants : a human factors perspective

    Author : Lena Kecklund; Erik Hollnagel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Safety; nuclear power; operators; work-related factors; performance; human error; annual outage; MTO; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to develop and apply different approaches for analyzing safety in critical work situations in real work settings in nuclear power plants, and also to identify safety enhancing measures by using the framework of interaction between human, organizational and technical subsystems (MTO, man-technology-organization). A Cognitive Psychology as well as a Stress Psychology framework was used. READ MORE

  3. 3. Work Practice, Safety and Heedfulness : Studies of Organizational Reliability in Hospitals and Nuclear Power Plants

    Author : Vincent Gauthereau; Karlene H. Roberts; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The study of safety in complex systems has focused on different issues over the past decades. This focus was often linked to the conclusions of previous accidents' / incidents' analyses. When accidents were attributed to technical causes, safety research focused on technical developments.
