International Conference on Quality Leadership and Management in the Nuclear Industry
15th FORATOM-IAEA Management Systems Workshop
16-19 July 2018 - Ottawa Canada

Monday 16 July 2018

07.00 – 08.00

Registration & Information Desk Opens – Hydrations Stations Sponsored by: Abraflex

08.00 – 09.45

Parallel session: Human Technology Organization Learning Track
More information

The effective design of Human Technology Organizations (HTO) and their interfaces is the key to maintaining both safe and effective reliable operation. The IAEA standards refer to this as a systemic approach. This session will give participants an opportunity to apply HTO when approaching design, operations and events in a structured way. HTO allows aspects to be reviewed and understood in context, and improvement opportunities can be identified and assessed for their impact. Through case studies, theory and practical exercises, participants will deepen their understanding of HTO concepts. At the end of this session, participants will have the knowledge to describe HTO concepts and their applicability to peers and leaders in their organization and make the case for integrating systematic HTO thinking into their management system implementation.

Full day course. Places limited to 45, allocated on a first come first served basis. Additional fees may apply

 

Parallel session: Safety Culture Learning Track
More information

This session will provide participants with an improved understanding of what safety culture is and the role of leaders in establishing and preserving a `healthy’ safety culture in a nuclear company. Participants will gain a better understanding of their role in leading and setting safety culture within their organization and will also walk away with the tools necessary to effectively interact with employees and contractors to influence change.

Led by:

  • John Froats, Associate Professor and Nuclear Engineer in Residence – University of Ontario,Institute of Technology (UOIT, Canada)

Full day course. Places limited to 45, allocated on a first come first served basis. Additional fees may apply

Parallel session: Commercial Grade Dedication Learning Track
More information

This half day learning session focuses on the application of Commercial Grade Dedication to meet current industry needs and regulatory requirements. Case studies and best practices with an emphasis on non-traditional dedications such as software, calibration and other services are used to illustrate the application of current Commercial Grade Dedication requirements and the roles and responsibilities of owners, Engineering, Procurement, Construction service providers, and suppliers. The requirements of ASME NQA-1-2012 Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications are used as the framework for this discussion.

Led by:

  • Doug Brown, Board Nuclear Codes and Standards Member, ASME (USA)

Half day course. Places limited to 30, allocated on a first come first served basis. Additional fees may apply

Parallel session: Counterfeit, Fraudulent and Suspect Items Learning Track
More information

Roger Moerman, CFSI Consultant, Atkins (USA)

The training workshop introduces the participant to the growing counterfeit issue through hands-on demonstration with actual hardware parts and materials. The training format is an interactive workshop approach with participants discussing processes, components, roles and responsibilities. The dialogue includes clues on detection and prevention of potential counterfeit, fraudulent, and suspect items; updates on new threats and impact on nuclear industry supply chain.

Half day course. Places limited to 30, allocated on a first come first served basis. Additional fees may apply

Parallel session: Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) Learning Track
More information

FMEA is a systematic approach to identify the way in which a design / process can fail to meet critical customer requirements. This session will help participants develop an understanding of the basics of the FMEA tool as a structured approach to risk management. Participants will learn how to use the FMEA tool to:

  • Prevent System, Product and Process problems before they occur by estimating the risk of specific causes with regard to the failures.
  • Reduce costs by identifying system, product and process improvements early in the development cycle by evaluating the current control plan for preventing failures from occurring.
  • Prioritize actions that decrease the risk of failure.
  • Evaluate the system, design and processes from a new vantage point.

Led by:

  • Johane Lemay, Management Consultant, ITPGMP Consulting Inc. and Contractor, Management System, Bruce Power (Canada)

Half day course. Places limited to 30, allocated on a first come first served basis.
