Nuclear Power


HumanSystems® and Nuclear Power

Whether you call it “Human Factors”, “Human Performance” or “Ergonomics”, integration of people, technology and performance is critical for safety as well as effective and efficient operation(s).

Managing the human aspects of design, construction, manufacturing and operations is a key part of the nuclear regulatory framework and requires co-ordination of responsibilities among different organizations.

Here's what we provide:

  • Human Factors (HF) planning and execution of design work as defined by CSA N290.12.14.

  • Application of Behavioural programs to achieve and maintain error free Human Performance (HU).

  • Identification and control of Ergonomic Occupational Health and Safety risks.

HumanSystems® offers the skills and experience you can rely upon. We understand how to apply structured design and behavioural methods in complex industries that demand high levels of reliability from both the equipment and the people that operate it.
