Nuclear safety

Using creative ways to drive behaviour change and utilising digital technology to support more effective engagement with our supply chain around nuclear safety.  

Challenge details

The foremost cultural priority for us is nuclear safety and in order to successfully deliver Hinkley Point C, it is critical that we are effective in embedding nuclear safety considerations in everything that we do.

There is an opportunity to use digital technology to support more effective engagement with our supply chain around nuclear safety and to drive better behaviour across our project. We are interested in exploring a wide variety of new technologies that could not only support a more creative approach to engagement but could also help us to set the bar for industry and inform the approach of the other new nuclear projects in EDF Energy’s pipeline (Sizewell C and Bradwell B).

Projects that effectively embed techniques to support incentivisation around behaviour change (eg. Gamification) will be of particular interest, as will projects which allow us to track and understand progress.
