The IAEA supports Member States in establishing, maintaining and sustaining an effective nuclear safety and security infrastructure.
'The meeting has enabled us to review and benchmark our plans as the output here will help Nigeria to produce a regulatory framework for its Human Reliability Programme,' said Adamu Abdul, from the Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Authority.
Dr. Pani Schutte, Principle Phycologist at the Koeberg NPP in South Africa, added that the meeting 'was crucial to establish a much needed and long overdue standardised approach to best practices with regards to human performance reliability'.
Capturing experiences from operators and regulators has allowed participants to compile international best practices. The output from this very first TM will lead to an IAEA publication on methodology and practices associated with the behavioral requirements for safe, secure and effective performance throughout employee's lifecycles.
Inna Pletukhina, from the US Department of State noted that despite the diverse cultural norms and organisational perspectives present at the event, 'the takeaway is the same for all Member States: safe, secure and effective human performance at nuclear facilities around the world.'
