The contribution of "human" and "non-human" actors to a collaborative health and safety inspection process for civilian nuclear power

Abstract : As the international standards OHSAS 18001 and ISO 31000 bear witness, interest in safety management is growing worldwide. At the same time, it is becoming more and more complex, which has led to increasing reliance on procedures. On the one hand, control procedures are embodied in inspection services, who are gaining in knowledge and experience and creating frameworks and tools. These changes have provided a better understanding and definition of the role and responsibilities of inspectors in compliance control. On the other hand, industries need to adapt to cultural and technical changes resulting from economic needs. The complexity of the situation has led industries to adopt management tools; amongst them new, but promising software packages. Decision support systems are growing in popularity with safety stakeholders. Feedback, indicators, monitoring: the toolbox continues to expand. At the same time, the information that is shared is expanding. Our work relates to the regulation process: do enhanced legal powers lead to improved control? Improvements in safety require a virtuous relationship between stakeholders and improved communication. This article looks in detail at the role of occupational health and safety inspectors in France and their relationships with industrial partners.
