EDF and AWG Training Ltd comply with improvement notices

The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) can confirm that EDF and AWG Training Ltd have now complied with improvement notices served on them for health and safety shortfalls.

Three workers were injured during a training exercise at Torness power station in Scotland in August 2022 when a hose and ground monitor (a stand for holding the hose) became loose and struck the workers during firefighting equipment training.

There were no consequences to the public or the environment as a result of the incident.

The training was being led by Berwickshire-based AWG Training Ltd at the site in East Lothian.

ONR conducted enquiries after being informed about the incident by EDF which resulted in the improvement notices.

Ian Bramwell, ONR’s Superintending Inspector for Operating Reactors, said: “We have engaged with both EDF and AWG Training Ltd since we served the improvement notices.

“We are now satisfied that both companies have addressed the health and safety shortfalls identified as a result of the incident.”
