About the opportunity:

Key responsibilities and accountabilities:
Engage with Plant personnel and review documentation to:
1. Assess the current risk context of the facility and determine if any future planned changes would affect the risk context
2. Define the plant boundaries and determine if any boundary changes have affected safety of the plant; does the plant impact on safety external to the plant?
3. Evaluate the operating, maintenance, inspection and testing history to determine any trends that may threaten safety on plant
4. Review the history of incidents/abnormal events and determine if there is a trend of near misses
5. Compare what the plant does, what it was designed to do and what the safety case says it does. Assess what modifications have been done to the plant and ensure the Safety Case reflect the totality of these.
6. Review how the plant conforms to modern codes, standards and good practices and consider the impact on plant safety
7. Determine the validity of engineering schedule and assess the current condition of Systems, Structures or Components (SSCs) and the effect on safety.

9. Evaluate the impact on safety of changes in the organisational structure and resourcing.
10. Assess the adequacy of the arrangements and practices for leadership and management for safety.
11. Report any aspects where there is an obvious improvement to safety, without doing detailed 'paper' reviews
12. Report any obvious known shortfalls that are not worth fixing and do not require further review; provide ALARP statements in support of these decisions.
13. Consider cumulative effects resulting from changes e.g. in the organisational structure, resources, Plant Modification Proposals (PMPs), Safety Case changes, Human factors (HuF), training & workforce SQEP, inventory, age and degradation, radiological conditions, discharges, culture/management, events/Learning From Experience (LFE), technical underpinning, Safety Assessment methods, engineering methods knowledge, plant performance etc.
14. Consider the degree of change (operational, technical and engineering) and the possibility of change on change
15. Prepare summary reports, Notes for the Record, Hazard Management Diagrams and other graphical presentations
16. Work with the Plant team to define and agreed POCO sequences that impact upon EDRs and the scale of any impact/interactions.
