senior human factors engineer
Human Factors lead for the vitrification plant proposed by BNFL Inc. to the Department of Energy. The plant, which in essence is comprised of 5 physical facilities, is in the early design process and this work is supported through the development of pertinent human factors and ergonomics design guides and implementation plans. Participates with project groups such as operations, engineering, control and instrumentation through taking part in Integrated Safety Management (ISM) processes and control strategy development. Evaluation of human interfaces, particularly operations and maintenance, is an ongoing and an iterative process through the evolutions of design development with a goal to reduce the possibility of human error through the implementation of good human factors practice while ensuring regulatory compliance.
