Organisational learning (OL) is the crucial component of operational excellence in NPPs. OL relies on performance assessments, change management and continuous improvements. OL has become increasingly important for the nuclear industry in its adaptation to changes in the political and economic environment, work force, technology in plants, and organisations of the nuclear utilities. A danger in this process is that even minor problems may trigger a chain of events in which the risk of deteriorated safety and/or diminishing trust in the safety standards of the particular NPP becomes possible. The project considers novel demands on the NPP management and creates methods and tools to approach them. The involvement of NPPs in the project makes it possible to benchmark approaches to safety management in different cultures and in stages of change. To ensure the maximum benefit for the NPPs, results are tested and adapted continuously in the project.
