Safety leadership: A nuclear industry perspective
SaRS North West Branch Event, Birchwood Golf Club, Warrington
The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) has developed guidance for its specialist inspectors when undertaking assessments of safety leadership. The guidance is structured upon, and draws lessons from, the SAFER Leadership Model developed by Wong et al (2015) which identifies five specific core behaviours of effective safety leadership. It also provides guidance on the role of senior leadership in setting safety standards and goals, the management system arrangements for encouraging effective safety leadership behaviours and discouraging poor safety leadership behaviours, and the assessment of safety leadership. Although intended for use by ONR’s inspectors, the guidance has wider application and may be of value to other high hazard industries and regulatory bodies. This presentation will provide an overview of the guidance and discuss how it can be used in a real-world context to identify improvements to safety leadership, to enhance both safety and business performance, and outcomes.
Speaker: Nick Shaw, Principal Nuclear Safety Inspector, Office for Nuclear Regulation (also the current Hazards Forum Chair).
