Nuclear Safety Culture & Behaviours, Level 3 Award - Construction ILM (Nuclear), Programme 2
Welcome to the Nuclear Safety Culture and Behaviours programme.
This practical course is designed for Supply Chain supervisors and other persons who are, or are about to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and supervising teams on a nuclear construction project.
It is about getting ready to work on a nuclear construction project. The course will look at the behavioural aspects of work and provide you with a head start on understanding what nuclear safety culture is.
The course focuses on behaviours which positively impact safety, quality and productivity in supply and construction. In particular we will discuss how to implement the behaviours required to build a nuclear safety culture both today and for tomorrow.
It highlights the need for effective leadership, teamwork, performance management and the importance of adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture within the whole workforce. It promotes a culture that accepts that mistakes can be made, admitted to and rectified, so that lessons learnt can be implemented, leading to a positive culture for safety from design through build and on to production and operation.
