Decommissioning
Decommissioning is a key issue in the nuclear industry as older plants are removed from service. Human factors can help in the design of effective and safe decommissioning procedures and de-fuelling operations. Close attention to ergonomics can aid in the physical safety of workers and can improve efficiency to minimize dosage.

Synergy has:
  • Undertaken task analytic studies of de-fuelling operations at both civil and defence sites.
  • Reviewed Safety Cases for undertaking de-fuelling and decommissioning operations
