NCS Manager's Workshop

The information presented at the Manager's workshop is designed for those people with oversight responsibility for criticality safety but not direct supervision of the criticality safety process. These may be managers who are in charge of all safety (fire, OSHA, crit, etc.) for a plant, or the plant manager. Anyone who needs to know what is involved in criticality safety and how it will affect their responsibilities should take this course. It is expected that they will leave the course with a better understanding of the criticality engineer’s perspective of k-effective, validation, uncertainty, double contingency, rules, standards, and regulations. They will also understand the risks and the probability of a criticality accident; what is contained in a process analysis, and what is expected of management and supervisors in formulating and implementing a criticality safety program.
