Member support missions are carried out at the request of a member plant or utility. They provide a means for WANO members to assist each other in improving safety or reliability at an individual member’s plant. A team of peers is selected for a member support mission from WANO’s membership on the basis of their expertise in the applicable area. The team then visits the member plant to review issues either identified during the peer review, or by the plant itself, and then works closely with the member to close the gap to excellent performance.
Recent missions have covered areas as diverse as stream analysis, work management, human performance, equipment reliability, radiation protection, operations, outage management and organisational effectiveness.
