Department name in US power plants?
« on: Jun 03, 2014, 07:36 »
Hi there,

as someone working in nuclear in Germany I might be interested in working in the US. I'm currently working in a department that deals with radiation protection, nuclear physics, chemistry, emergency response and so on. Every german plant has such a department, and translated directly that department would be called "Surveillance". However, searching with that keyword does not bring up much, so I suppose that department is called differently. Does anyone know how? Or are US plants organized differently?

Cheers,
DrTron

Over here, that's usually several departments:
Health Physics / Radiation Protection
Chemistry
Emergency Planning
Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

Hello,

Thanks for the info. So those departments usually reside directly beneath the plant manager?

For us (VC Summer), RP and Chemistry have their own Manager.

EP falls under the General Manager, Nuclear Support Services, along with Nuclear Licensing, Scheduling & Planning and Outage Planning.
