5 Introduction (3) 12 Basic Activities in HFE Program Plan for HFE Program Review Model(0711) This figure shows HFE Program Review Model Review Elements. This HFE Program Review Model consists of four general activities including Planning analysis, design, verification and validation, and implementation and operation.

6 Human Factor Review Items in PSR
HF items defined in the Enforcement Regulation of the Acts Tech. Areas by KAERI 9. Human factors (a) Staffing levels for the operation of a nuclear power plant with due recognition of absences, shift working and overtime restrictions (b) Availability of qualified staff on duty at all times (c) Programs for initial, refresher and upgrade training, including the use of simulators (iv) Human Factors for Human Resources Management Work status Qualification and assignment Training Prog. & Simulator (d) Information requirements and workload of staff (iii) Information Requirements and Workload Assess. (e) Man-machine interface (MMI) (ii) MMI 6. Use of experience from other plants and of research findings (a) Appropriateness of the plan and system for the feedback of experience (relevant to human factors) (b) Programs for the feedback of experience and research findings (relevant to human factors) incorporated into other areas Accumulated records of Operations 7. Procedures (c) Clarity of procedures with human factor principles taken into account (i) Human Factors in Procedures

7 HF items in the revised IAEA PSR Guide(2003)
(a) Staffing levels for the operation of a nuclear power plant with due recognition of absences, shift working and overtime restrictions (b) Availability of qualified staff on duty at all time (c) Policy to maintain the know-how of the plant staff (d) Systematic and validated staff selection methods (e.g. testing for aptitude, knowledge and skills (e) Programmes for initial training, refresher training and upgrading training, including the use of simulators (f) Training in safety culture, particularly for management staff (g) Programmes for the feedback of operating experience for failures and/or errors in human performance that have contributed to safety significant events and of their causes and corrective actions and/or safety improvements (h) Fitness for duty guidelines relating to hours of work, good health and substance abuse (i) Competence requirements for operating, maintenance, technical and managerial staff (j) Human-machine interface: design of the control room and other work stations; analysis of human information requirements and task workload; linkage to PSA and deterministic analyses (k) Style and clarity of procedures Items (c), (d), (f), (h), and (i) are new compared to those in the 1994 version. KAERI incorporated these items into the area (iv) human resources.

8 Implementation Process of HF PSR
Establishment of relevant criteria and assessment procedures Criteria for Procedure assessment Criteria for MMI assessment Criteria for other HF assessment Detailed Assessment -document-based assessment -on-site reviews -expert panel reviews -experimental evaluations yes Satisfy criteria? Report of satisfied factors no Issue collection and evaluation Report of issues and corrective action plans Report to KINS KINS evaluation

9 Requirements for Continuous Operation
The Enforcement Regulation of the Atomic Energy Act was revised in September 2005. added two items to the existing PSR items (i) life assessment of the major components in consideration of the duration of an extended operation, (ii) assessment of the radiation effects for the environments changed after the operating license. In human factors aspects, the resolution of HF PSR issues is required for a Continuous Operation. Request for the Continuous Operation permit for Kori 1 (out of 30 years design life) was submitted by July 2007.
