Emerging HR Demand for SMRs
20 countries out of 54 potential importers can accommodate only under 300MWe plants (2008, IAEA)

SMR Market Forecast
400–850 units (CRIEPI, Japan) 500-1,000 units by 2050 (US DOE/GNEP) $350 Billion of global market (STEPI/IAEA)

Causes of Human Errors in NPP Industry
Personal Characteristics Lack of Experience Heavy Workload

Negligence of Operation Procedure

Human Errors by O&M Personnel

16% 16% of Total Shutdown Incidents
Inappropriate Communication Method

Missing Requirements

6

Effects of Human Errors
16% 16% of Total Shutdown Incidents caused by Human Error, Some showed devastating effects

TMI Accident
Human Mechanical + Error Failure
(Stuck-open (ECC passive shutdown) PORV)

Chernobyl Accident
Human Error

Fukushima Accident
Natural Disaster

(Safeguard bypass during (Earthquake, house load test) tsunami)

+

Insufficient Response
(Delayed management decision)

Need to avoid accidents by human errors reduction
7

Ways to Minimize Human Errors
Active R&D to Prevent Human Errors
Improve control room Develop operator support system & technology to enhance operators’ reliability Develop cognitive eng’g technology: ManMachine Interface Apply experimental psychology on human factor engineering

Set-up Safety-Centered Work Environment
Strengthen field safety management system Improve work environment Guarantee and promote independence of safety monitoring

Develop Field-based Practical Program
• Set-up proper O&M procedure • Enhance O&M engineers’ capabilities and strengthen training • Conduct periodic and continuous safety culture assessments

A Need to Nurture Leadership-Level Professionals
8

Strengthened Regulations
• Increased demand for domestic NPP regulations Change in Regulatory Environment • Increased workload due to new construction in- and – out country • New regulation for SMRs Tougher Regulations on Severe Accidents after Fukushima • Sharp increase in interests and concerns on severe accidents • Enhanced independence and diversity of safety regulations

2. Current Status of NPP HRs
Issues of NPP HRs
Absolute shortage of HRs Increasing HR demand for Tougher regulations Aging experts

Needs for higher quality technology

Department store-style enumerative education
☞ Insufficient educational synergy ☞ Adaptation period needed

Brain drain
Nuclear education: takes long time

Field Needs - Education Disparity

Education & Leadership : Stepping-Stones of Success

Total numbers of

nuclear employee ; 20,784
College ; 14.8% BS ; 47.3% MS & Ph.D ; 17.7% A Need to Nurture Leadership-Level Professionals

3. Korean Strategy to Enhance Capabilities of NPP HRs
Establish and promote active and systematic strategy to nurture NPP professionals Strengthen international cooperation Enforce employee reeducation Strengthen employees' expertise Securing special professionals for overseas project

Establish “Nuclear HR development Consortium” Implement nuclear HR supply master plan Lead development of comprehensive education package for NPP exports Promote a synergy with link of the industry and government, and internation cooperation

Industry Government Academy

Periodic estimation of industry HR need Establish customized education nurture professional engineers Seek various measures to make excellent students enroll and secure required funds
