Following the decision by GDF Suez Electrabel, the Vinçotte Academy and Vinçotte Controlatom partnership was selected to provide Safety Culture training for all GDF Suez Electrabel contractors needing access to the Tihange nuclear plant site.
Plant management is very concerned about the safety of all employees, the public and the environment. Management actively supports a strong nuclear safety policy at every step of the operations process.
THE ELECTRABEL POLICY
Safety Culture training includes a basic version (four days of training) and a refresher version (two days of training). The certificate is valid for five years in both cases.
The trainers teaching the classes are all experts in their areas of security, radioprotection, safety, health and the environment. All have had prior experience at the Tihange nuclear plant. Training is split into a "theoretical" portion and a "practical" portion which takes place on the training work site.
Registration for training is done via this site Internet and payment is made on-line (an invoice will be created). After registration, contractors can order as many credits as they need (with a validity of 5 years) then validate registration for their staff. A registration confirmation will be sent by e-mail.
Training gives access to training vouchers from the Walloon Region and from various other organisations. www.leforem.be.
