Nuclear Safety in Light Water Reactors
K Interdependencies of reactor physics, reactor materials, chemistry and thermal hydraulics on the design and operation of reactor systems. K Effective leadership, management and mentoring techniques including oral and written communication strategies that incorporate a working knowledge of LWR and regulatory terminology used in this occupation, for example Nuclear and Health and Safety legislation and guidance.
S1 Work competently and safely in a technical nuclear environment to meet regulatory and legislative requirements. S2 Select and use appropriate models, codes, both probabilistic and deterministic, and analytical techniques. S3 Assess and make recommendations for modifications to system and component design throughout the reactor lifecycle, demonstrating the rigour required to contribute to nuclear safety cases.
S4 Evaluate plant conditions under all modes of LWR operation, for example shut down, and start up, critical steady state operations. S5 Integrate design principles, hazard identification and risk evaluation techniques into maintenance, repair and modification solutions. S6 Integrate radiological protection principles into technical proposals and solutions. S7 Apply appropriate mathematical statistical methods to enable uncertainties to be clearly expressed and explained to a technical and non-technical audience.
S8 Communicate effectively and professionally with all levels within and across the organisation. S9 Carry out calculations for reactor physics and thermal hydraulics.
S11 Generate and lead teams, physical or virtual, to solve cross-cutting problems; acknowledge the accomplishments of others and the importance of individual contributions to overall performance. B1: Demonstrate reliability, integrity and respect for confidentiality on work related and personal matters. B2: Work autonomously and interact effectively within a wide, multi-disciplinary project team.
B3: Understand the impact of work on others, supporting an inclusive environment.
