As Head of the Environmental Protection & Nuclear Safety Division (EPNS), you will lead and manage the Division and Safety groups reporting to the Safety and Quality Department Head (SQD), ensuring ITER Organization’s (IO) and relevant stakeholders’ compliance with the ITER Safety policy, and developing a common safety culture.
Additionally, you will be in charge of the analysis of all risks associated with nuclear safety functions, impact on people, and the environment. These risks can be due to internal hazards (fire, explosion, thermo-hydraulics, etc.,) or to external hazards (earthquakes, roads traffic, neighboring industrial facilities, etc.).
Finally, you will oversee the licensing process, and specifically the safety demonstration (safety case), by studying all risks to integrate and propagate the appropriate lines of defense against into all lifetime phases of ITER nuclear facility.
The Safety & Quality Department (SQD) shall support the Director–General (DG) to facilitate and ensure the ITER Organization’s (IO) and relevant stakeholders’ compliance with the Safety and Quality Management program: 1) Article 14 of the ITER Agreement states: “The ITER Organization shall observe applicable national laws and regulations of the Host State in the fields of public and occupational health and safety, nuclear safety, radiation protection, licensing, nuclear substances, environmental protection and protection from acts of malevolence”, and 2) Integrated Management System through the Management & Quality Program (MQP), throughout all lifetime phases of IO’s installations including: design, construction (with manufacturing and assembly of structures systems and components), Commissioning, Operation, dismantling and release from regulatory control, maintaining close collaboration with all other ITER Organization (IO) and Domestic Agency (DA) departments is of utmost importance with a view to developing a common safety, security and quality culture.
Note: May be requested to work on beryllium-containing components. In this case, you will be required to follow the established ITER Beryllium Management Program for working safely with beryllium. Training and support will be provided by the ITER Organization.
