A further speaker at CRA’s annual Risk Forum on 5th & 6th October 2016 in Stratford upon Avon.
Speaker: Andrew Buchan, Head of Analysis and Assessment, Security and Resilience at Sellafield.
Topic: Developing a Safety Case for Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Technology.
Developments in UAV technology offer significant opportunities for cost and risk reduction in a range of inspection and measurement activities. This presentation will cover the challenges of producing a safety case for the use of UAVs, highlighting the deployment and development of UAV technologies at the Sellafield nuclear complex.
Andrew Buchan graduated from Aberdeen University and started his career at UKAEA Harwell working on the chemistry of waste disposal. He then carried out technical decommissioning assessments at Sellafield and Windscale. Andrew leads the programme of Severe Accident Analysis for Sellafield. He is also the current President of the Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) which represents engineers and scientists from many industries working in Safety and Reliability.
Andrew designed and built his own house on time and on budget long before Kevin McCloud and Grand Designs made it fashionable.
