Announcing our 1st speaker at this years annual Risk Forum, 16th and 17th September…
Speaker: Dr Alfred (Fred) Torri
Role: President of Risk Management Associates, California
Topic: Modelling and Validating Operator Actions in SAMGs
Interesting Fact: Dr Torri’s company has developed very advanced SAMG tools which have been used at Leibstadt and OKG
Dr Tori is the President of Risk Management Associates in California and is a specialist in Level 2 PSA and Severe Accident Management Guidance (SAMG). Dr Torri’s company has developed very advanced SAMG tools which have been used at Leibstadt and OKG.
Dr Torri’s paper will be ‘Modelling and Validating Operator Actions in SAMGs’ and he will discuss traditional approaches to develop and validate SAMGs and specifically the operator actions required by them. More comprehensive methods for SAMG validations which may become inevitable following Fukushima will also be detailed.
The Fukushima accidents uniquely demonstrated the absolute need for prepared SAMGs even for the smallest plants with a trained staff and clearly assigned decision authority and responsibility.
