Thomas Ashton Institute for Risk and Regulatory Research

Building relationships with the Office for Nuclear Regulation.

18 July 2023

The Ashton team welcomed members of the Office for Nuclear Regulation's Human and Organisational Capability Specialism group to The University of Manchester, to provide an overview of the work we do, and build new relationships.

Members of ONR's Human and Organisational Capability specialism group sitting around a table, finding out about the Thomas Ashton Institute.

As part of the 2-day event, members of the group also had project updates from the research team from the Alliance Manchester Business School who have developed a model and measure of safety culture for the UK nuclear industry.

The model will support the ONR in its regulatory duties, and the UK nuclear industry in efforts to improve nuclear safety. In addition, based on this model, researchers developed and validated a survey to measure safety culture at UK-based nuclear sites. Findings from the project will be shared here soon.

With thanks to: Lina Siegl, David Holman, Sharon Clarke, David Hughes from The University of Manchester, and Nick Shaw and Marc McBride from the ONR.
