About the opportunity:
Jacobs Nuclear is the Design and Engineering partner for Sellafield under the PPP (Programme and Project Partners). This is a 20-year arrangement to deliver £7bn of major projects. We are looking to recruit high value expertise from across regulated and comparable sectors to work in a collaborative environment.

We are currently looking for a Human Factors (HF) Assessor position to join the team in Birchwood.
Human Factors design and safety case support
The HF resource will need to be fully embedded / integrated with the RAP Project, in particular the design / engineering, pre-ops and safety disciplines. The key HF activities planned include:
• Project planning / management, for example:
o Management of live HF scope and program document
o HF planning / scoping activities for subsequent project phases
o Logging, tracking and closing off HF issues, actions and requirements.
• HF design support, for example:
o Understanding the role of the operator – task analysis on key functions/tasks to inform design development, HF requirements capture and HF design advice
o Attendance at key design review meetings (SDDR, MDDR)
o Input into optioneering / design of problem-solving techniques and proposed technologies
o Providing ergonomic design advice / review to aspects such as HMI, anthropometric assessment, glovebox design, maintenance tasks, access / egress, workspace layout, etc.
o HF support to Problem-solving Equipment Modifiers / down selection and nuclearisation of instruments
o HF design verification of operator tasks, equipment design and organization environments
o HF support to Pre-operations function (staffing levels, training, ability, procedures, etc).
• HF safety case support, for example:
o Input into the nuclear safety case strategy, utilising SL HF methodologies
o Attendance at HAZOPs and input into fault identification
o Input into allocation of safety function to operational controls
o Input into the development of radiological, criticality and chemotoxic safety assessments
o HF substantiation of safety significant tasks / operator claims.
HF support will also be required throughout the remaining project lifecycle, to ensure that the operator role is adequate and that the design outcome meets the user needs, accommodates for human psychological and physical characteristics and minimises the potential for human error and violations.
